Call For Papers

The functional programming community is largely interested in writing beautiful programs. The ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on Functional Art, Music, Modelling and Design (FARM) is intended to gather researchers and practitioners interested in writing beautiful programs which generate beautiful artifacts or experiences, or perhaps even challenge notions of beauty. FARM encourages submissions from across art, craft and design, including textiles, visual art, music, 3D sculpture, animation, GUIs, video games, physical models, architectural models, choreographies for dance, poetry, and even VLSI layouts, GPU configurations, or mechanical engineering designs. The language used need not be purely functional (“mostly functional” is fine); may be based on abstractions such as higher-order functions, monads, arrows, or streams; and may be manifested as a domain specific language or tool. Theoretical foundations, language design, implementation issues, and applications in industry or the arts are all within the scope of the workshop.

Submissions are invited in two categories:

Full papers

5 to 12 pages using the ACM SIGPLAN template. FARM 2014 is an interdisciplinary conference, so a wide range of approaches are encouraged and we recognize that the appropriate length of a paper may vary considerably depending on the approach. However, all submissions must propose an original contribution to the FARM theme, cite relevant previous work, and apply appropriate research methods.

Demo abstracts

Demo abstracts should describe the demonstration and its context, connecting it with the themes of FARM. A demo could be in the form of a short (10-20 minute) tutorial, presentation of work-in-progress, an exhibition of some work, or even a performance. Abstracts should be no longer than 2 pages, using the ACM SIGPLAN template and will be subject to a light-touch peer review.

If you have any questions about what type of contributions that might be suitable, or anything else regarding submission or the workshop itself, please contact the organisers at:
