The Haskell Workshop
Since 2008, the Haskell Workshop has become the
The workshop links below are also now available from the Symposium page.
The Haskell Workshop is an annual
workshop organized in affiliation with the International Conference
on Functional Programming (ICFP).
The workshop is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery
(ACM) under the aegis of the ACM Special
Interest Group on Programming Languages
The purpose of the Haskell Workshop is to discuss experience with Haskell, and
future developments for the language. The scope of the workshop includes all
aspects of the design, semantics, theory, application, implementation, and
teaching of Haskell.
Upcoming Haskell Workshop
The Haskell Workshop 2008 will take place
in September, and is co-located with
in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
Past Haskell Workshops
The main purpose of the Haskell Workshop Steering Committee is to provide
continuity of the workshop and to offer help and advice to the current
organizer(s) of the workshop.
The responsibilities of the steering committee are:
To provide continuity of the Haskell Workshop, serve the Haskell community,
and maintain the functional vision and vigour of the workshop.
To officially represent the Haskell Workshop with the sponsoring
organization, ACM SIGPLAN, and consult with the SIGPLAN chair on
matters of policy and planning.
To appoint the Haskell Workshop Program Chair each year in consultation
with the SIGPLAN Chair, and approve the Program Chair's choice of
To provide help and guidance to the Haskell Workshop Program Chair in the
overall technical organization of the workshop, as well with budget
preparation and the cooperation with affiliated conferences and workshops.
The Haskell Workshop Steering Committee comprises the three previous
Haskell Workshop Program Chairs, the current Haskell Workshop Chair, and
three appointed Members-At-Large.
Each year, around the date of the Haskell Workshop, the Steering
Committee, in consultation with the SIGPLAN Chair, appoints the Program
Chair for the next Haskell Workshop. The steering committee additionally
appoints a new Member-At-Large to succeed the currently longest serving
Member-At-Large. The new Haskell Workshop Program Chair and the newly
appointed Member-At-Large then join the Steering Committee, while
the longest serving former Program Chair and Member-At-Large step down.
The chair of the Steering Committee is the longest serving former Program
Should there be vacancies within the Steering Committee, e.g. due to a
member stepping down early, the Steering Committee appoints members to fill
the vacancies and, if necessary, decides on the succession ordering.
The present members of the Steering Committee are:
Microsoft Research (Steering Committee Chair, HW Chair 2005, end of term 2008)
University of Bonn (HW Chair 2006, end of term 2009)
University of New South Wales (HW Chair 2007, end of term 2010)
Galois, Inc. (HW Chair 2008, end of term 2011)
University of New South Wales (Member-At-Large, end of term 2008)
Utrecht University (Member-At-Large, end of term 2009)
University of York (Member-At-Large, end of term 2010)
The Programme Committee is responsible for the technical content of the
Haskell Workshop. The Haskell Workshop Program Chair, with the approval
of the Steering Committee, appoints the Program Committee and leads its work.
