IFL 2009 : Symposium on Implementation and Application of Functional Languages


Conference Series : Implementation and Application of Functional Languages
When Sep 23, 2009 - Sep 25, 2009
Where South Orange, NJ, USA
Submission Deadline Aug 15, 2009

Call For Papers

The 21st International Symposium on Implementation and Application of Functional Languages, IFL 2009, will be held for the first time in the USA. The hosting institution is Seton Hall University in South Orange, NJ, USA and the symposium dates are September 23-25, 2009. It is our goal to make IFL a regular event held in the USA and in Europe. The goal of the IFL symposia is to bring together researchers actively engaged in the implementation and application of functional and function-based programming languages. IFL 2009 will be a venue for researchers to present and discuss new ideas and concepts, work in progress, and publication-ripe results related to the implementation and application of functional languages and function-based programming.

Following the IFL tradition, IFL 2009 will use a post-symposium review process to produce a formal proceedings which we expect to be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. All participants in IFL 2009 are invited to submit either a draft paper or an extended abstract describing work to be presented at the symposium. These submissions will be screened by the program committee chair to make sure they are within the scope of IFL and will appear in the draft proceedings distributed at the symposium. Submissions appearing in the draft proceedings are not peer-reviewed publications. After the symposium, authors will be given the opportunity to incorporate the feedback from discussions at the symposium and will be invited to submit a revised full arcticle for the formal review process. These revised submissions will be reviewed by the program committee using prevailing academic standards to select the best articles that will appear in the formal proceedings.


IFL welcomes submissions describing practical and theoretical as well as submissions describing applications and tools. If you are not sure if your work is appropriate for IFL 2009, please contact the PC chair at Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

•language concepts
•type checking
•compilation techniques
•staged compilation
•runtime function specialization
•runtime code generation
•partial evaluation
•(abstract) interpretation
•generic programming techniques
•automatic program generation
•array processing
•concurrent/parallel programming
•concurrent/parallel program execution
•functional programming and embedded systems
•functional programming and web applications
•functional programming and security
•novel memory management techniques
•runtime profiling and performance measurements
•debugging and tracing
•virtual/abstract machine architectures
•validation and verification of functional programs
•tools and programming techniques


Prospective authors are encouraged to submit papers or extended abstracts to be published in the draft proceedings and to present them at the symposium. All contributions must be written in English, conform to the Springer-Verlag LNCS series format and not exceed 16 pages. The draft proceedings will appear as a technical report of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of Seton Hall University.


The Peter Landin Prize is awarded to the best paper presented at the symposium every year. The honored article is selected by the program committee based on the submissions received for the formal review process. The prize carries a cash award equivalent to 150 euros.
