             International Conference on Functional Programming
                                (ICFP 2005)

                              Call for Papers

                           September 26-28, 2005
                              Tallinn, Estonia

                    Submission deadline: 13 April, 2005

   ICFP 2005 seeks original papers on the art and science of functional
   programming.  Submissions are invited on all topics ranging from
   principles to practice, from foundations to features, from abstraction
   to application.  The scope includes all languages that encourage
   functional programming, including both purely applicative and
   imperative languages, as well as languages with objects and
   concurrency.  Particular topics of interest include:

     * Applications and domain-specific languages: Systems programming,
       scientific and numerical computing, symbolic computing and
       artificial intelligence, databases, graphical user interfaces,
       multimedia programming, application scripting, system
       administration, distributed-systems and web programming, XML
       processing, security.

     * Foundations: Formal semantics, lambda calculus, type theory,
       monads, continuations, control, state, effects.

     * Design: Algorithms and data structures, modules and type systems,
       concurrency and distribution, components and composition,
       relations to object-oriented and logic programming.

     * Implementation: Abstract machines, compile-time and run-time
       optimization, just-in-time compilers, memory management.
       Interfaces to foreign functions, services, components and
       low-level machine resources.

     * Transformation and analysis: Abstract interpretation, partial
       evaluation, program transformation.

     * Software-development techniques for functional programming: Design
       patterns, specification, verification, validation, debugging, test
       generation, tracing and profiling.

     * Practice and experience: Functional programming in education and

     * Functional pearls: Elegant, instructive examples of functional

   Papers in the last three categories need not necessarily report
   original research results; they may instead, for example, report
   practical experience that will be useful to others, re-usable
   programming idioms, or elegant new ways of approaching a problem.

   A special issue of the Journal of Functional Programming will
   highlight selected papers from the meeting.
