ACM SIGPLAN 2008 Haskell Symposium
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
Thursday, 25th September, 2008


The Haskell Symposium 2008 is part of the 2008 International Conference
on Functional Programming (ICFP) as an associated ACM SIGPLAN sponsored

The purpose of the Haskell Symposium is to discuss experience with
Haskell, and future developments for the language. The scope of the
symposium includes all aspects of the design, semantics, theory,
application, implementation, and teaching of Haskell. Topics of
interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Language Design, with a focus on possible extensions and
modifications of Haskell as well as critical discussions of the
status quo;
* Theory, in the form of a formal treatment of the semantics of the
present language or future extensions, type systems, and
foundations for program analysis and transformation;
* Implementations, including program analysis and transformation,
static and dynamic compilation for sequential, parallel, and
distributed architectures, memory management as well as foreign
function and component interfaces;
* Tools, in the form of profilers, tracers, debuggers,
pre-processors, and so forth;
* Applications, Practice, and Experience, with Haskell for scientific
and symbolic computing, database, multimedia and Web applications,
and so forth as well as general experience with Haskell in
education and industry;
* Functional Pearls, being elegant, instructive examples of using

Papers in the latter two categories need not necessarily report
original research results; they may instead, for example, report
practical experience that will be useful to others, re-usable
programming idioms, or elegant new ways of approaching a problem. The
key criterion for such a paper is that it makes a contribution from
which other practitioners can benefit. It is not enough simply to
describe a program!

Before 2008, the Haskell Symposium was known as the Haskell
Workshop. The name change reflects the steady increase of
influence of the Haskell Workshop on the wider community, as well
as an increasing numbers of high quality submissions making the
acceptance process highly competitive. Previously, Haskell
Workshops have been held in La Jolla (1995), Amsterdam (1997),
Paris (1999), Montreal (2000), Firenze (2001), Pittsburgh (2002),
Uppsala (2003), Snowbird (2004), Tallinn (2005),
Portland, Oregon (2006), Freiburg (2007).

Submission Details

* Submission Deadline: Monday, June 23rd 2008
(9:00 am, Samoa Standard Time, UTC -11)
* Author Notification: Friday, July 18th 2008
* Final Papers Due: Monday, July 28th 2008

Submitted papers should be in portable document format (PDF), formatted
using the ACM SIGPLAN style guidelines
( The length is
restricted to 12 pages, and the font size 9pt. Each submission must
adhere to SIGPLAN's republication policy, as explained on the web.
Violation risks summary rejection of the offending submission.

Paper submissions can be made via the easychair webpage

Accepted papers will be published by the ACM and will appear in the ACM
Digital Library.

If there is sufficient demand, we will try to organize a time slot for
system or tool demonstrations. If you are interested in demonstrating a
Haskell related tool or application, please send a brief demo proposal
to Andy Gill,
