International Workshop on Trends in Functional Programming in Education 2012
June 11 2012
University of St Andrews, Scotland

The first International Workshop on Trends in Functional Programming in
Education, TFPIE 2012, will be co-located with TFP 2012 at the
University of St Andrews in Scotland. The goal of TFPIE is to gather
researchers, professors, teachers, and all professionals that use or are
interested in the use of functional programming in education. TFPIE aims
to be a venue where novel ideas, classroom-tested ideas, and work in
progress on the use of functional programming in education are
discussed. The one-day workshop will foster a spirit of open discussion
by having a review process for publication after the workshop.

The program chairs of TFPIE 2012 will screen submissions to ensure that
all presentations are within scope and are of interest to participants.
Potential presenters are invited to submit an extended abstract (4-6
pages) or an article (up to 16 pages). The authors of all accepted
presentations will have their preprints and their slides made available
on the workshop's website/wiki. Any visitors to the TFPIE 2012
website/wiki will be able to add comments. This includes presenters who
may respond to comments and questions as well as provide pointers to
improvements and follow-up work. After the workshop, the program
committee will review, using prevailing academic standards, the articles
accepted for presentation to select the best for publication in
Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS). Articles
rejected for presentation and all extended abstracts will not be
formally reviewed by the PC.


TFPIE 2012 welcomes submissions describing practical techniques used in
the classroom, tools used and/or developed, and any creative use of
functional programming (FP) to aid education in or outside Computer
Science. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

FP and beginning CS students
FP in Artificial Intelligence
FP in Robotics
FP and Music
Advanced FP for undergraduates
FP in graduate education
Engaging students in research using FP
FP in Programming Languages
FP in the high school curriculum
FP as a stepping stone to other CS topics
FP and Philosophy
