TFP 2010 : 11th Symposium on Trends in Functional Programming
Conference Series : Trends in Functional Programming
Call For Papers
The University of Oklahoma will host the Eleventh Symposium on Trends in Functional Programming on its campus in Norman, Oklahoma, May 17-19, 2010. The symposium is an international forum for researchers with interests in all aspects of functional programming. It embraces a broad view of current and future trends in Functional Programming and aspires to be a lively environment for presenting the latest research results. TFP considers both full papers and extended abstracts for presentation at the symposium. A formal refereeing process after the symposium selects the best presentations for publication in a high-profile volume. Further information about the history and aims of the symposium can be found on its home page: http://www.tifp.org/
Scope of the Symposium
TFP solicits high-quality articles in any of five categories:
Research Articles leading-edge, previously unpublished research
Position Papers advocating or critiquing new trends
Project Descriptions descriptions of new or recently initiated projects
Project Evaluations lessons drawn from completed projects
Overview Articles summaries of trendy work
Articles must be original and not submitted to any other forum for publication. They may consider any aspect of functional programming. Theory, implementation, experience, applications, and the use of functional programming methods in other languages all lie within the scope of the symposium. Articles on the following subject areas are particularly welcomed:
* Validation and verification of functional programs
* Debugging for functional languages
* Functional programming and security
* Functional programming and mobility
* Functional programming to animate/prototype/implement systems from formal or semi-formal specifications
* Functional languages for telecommunications applications
* Functional languages for embedded systems
* Implementations or applications of functional domain specific languages
* Exemplary applications in languages such as Lisp, Scheme, ML, Erlang, Clean, Haskell, and F#
* Functional programming applied to global computing
* Functional grids
* Functional programming ideas in imperative or object-oriented settings (and the converse)
* Interoperability with imperative programming languages
* Novel memory management techniques
* Parallel/concurrent functional languages
* Implementations and applications targeting multi-core chips
* Program transformation techniques
* Empirical or analytical performance studies
* Abstract/virtual machines and compilers for functional languages
* Dependently typed functional programming
* New implementation strategies
* Any new, emerging trend in functional programming

Best Student Paper Award
TFP traditionally pays special attention to research conducted by students, acknowledging that students commonly develop new subject trends. A prize for the best student paper is awarded each year.
Preparing and Submitting Manuscripts
Full papers (up to 15 pages) and extended abstracts (3 to 6 pages, to be expanded to full papers if accepted) submitted for presentation at the symposium are screened by the program committee. A draft proceedings available at the conference will contain all accepted papers and all accepted abstracts that have been expanded to full papers. Each submission must declare its category (research, position, project, evaluation, or overview).
A student paper is one for which the first author is a PhD student. Authors who are students should so indicate when they submit their article. The Program Committee will provide extra feedback for student papers to help compensate for differences between students and other researchers in experience with the publication process.
The post-symposium proceedings will appear in the Springer series, Lecture Notes in Computer Science.
Prepare your manuscipt using the Springer LNCS LaTeX2e guidelines for proceedings and multiauthor volumes.
Download author instructions, examples, and required LaTeX2e files from the LNCS website.
You will need to supply both a PDF file and the LaTeX2e source files for your paper.
Pay particular attention to Springer LNCS requirements for references and author names.

Online draft proceedings
All authors are asked to agree to the following terms, to make all papers available in an online, draft proceedings:

Post-Symposium Refereeing and Publication
In addition to the draft symposium proceedings, TFP 2010 continues the tradition of publishing a high-quality volume containing the best papers from the symposium. All TFP authors will be invited to submit revised papers after the symposium. These will be refereed using normal conference standards, and the best papers will be selected for publication in the Springer series, Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Papers will be judged on their contributions with appropriate criteria applied to each category of paper.
