FLOPS 2014 : International Symposium on Functional and Logic Programming
Conference Series : International Symposium on Functional and Logic Programming
Call For Papers
FLOPS is a forum for research on all issues concerning declarative programming, including functional programming and logic programming, and aims to promote cross-fertilization and integration between the two paradigms. Previous FLOPS meetings were held at Fuji Susono (1995), Shonan Village (1996), Kyoto (1998), Tsukuba (1999), Tokyo (2001), Aizu (2002), Nara (2004), Fuji Susono (2006), Ise (2008), Sendai (2010), and Kobe (2012).
December 13, 2013: Submission deadline
February 10, 2014: Author notification
March 7, 2014: Camera-ready copy
June 4-6, 2014: Conference
FLOPS solicits original papers in all areas of functional and logic programming, including (but not limited to):
Language issues: language design and constructs, programming methodology, integration of paradigms, interfacing with other languages, type systems, constraints, concurrency and distributed computing.
Foundations: logic and semantics, rewrite systems and narrowing, type theory, proof systems.
Implementation issues: compilation techniques, memory management, program analysis and transformation, partial evaluation, parallelism.
Applications: case studies, real-world applications, graphical user interfaces, Internet applications, XML, databases, formal methods and model checking.
The proceedings will be published as an LNCS volume. The proceedings of the previous meetings (FLOPS 1999, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, and 2012) were published as LNCS 1722, 2024, 2441, 2998, 3945, 4989, 6009, and 7294.
Submissions must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Work that already appeared in unpublished or informally published workshops proceedings may be submitted. See also ACM SIGPLAN Republication Policy: http://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Policies/Republication
Submissions should fall into one of the following categories:
Regular research papers: they should describe new results and will be judged on originality, correctness, and significance.
System descriptions: they should contain a link to a working system and will be judged on originality, usefulness, and design.
Declarative pearls: new and excellent declarative programs or theories with illustrative applications.
System descriptions and declarative pearls must be explicitly marked as such in the title.
Submissions must be written in English and can be up to 15 pages long including references, though pearls are typically shorter. Authors are required to use LaTeX2e and the Springer llncs class file, available at: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html
Regular research papers should be supported by proofs and/or experimental results. In case of lack of space, this supporting information should be made accessible otherwise (e.g., a link to a Web page, or an appendix). Papers should be submitted electronically at: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=flops2014
