                     ACM SIGPLAN 2007 Haskell Workshop
                              Call for Papers

                              Freiburg, Germany
                             30 September, 2007

   The Haskell Workshop 2007 will be part of the 2007 International
   Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP) as an associated, ACM
   SIGPLAN sponsored workshop. Previous Haskell Workshops have been held
   in La Jolla (1995), Amsterdam (1997), Paris (1999), Montreal (2000),
   Firenze (2001), Pittsburgh (2002), Uppsala (2003), Snowbird (2004),
   Tallinn (2005), and Portland, Oregon (2006)


   The purpose of the Haskell Workshop is to discuss experience with
   Haskell, and possible future developments for the language. The scope
   of the workshop includes all aspects of the design, semantics,
   application, implementation, and teaching of Haskell. Topics of
   interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
     * Language Design, with a focus on possible extensions and
       modifications of Haskell as well as critical discussions of the
       status quo;
     * Theory, in the form of a formal treatment of the semantics of the
       present language or future extensions, type systems, and
       foundations for program analysis and transformation;
     * Implementations, including program analysis and transformation,
       static and dynamic compilation for sequential, parallel, and
       distributed architectures, memory management as well as foreign
       function and component interfaces;
     * Tools, in the form of profilers, tracers, debuggers,
       pre-processors, and so forth;
     * Applications, Practice, and Experience with Haskell for
       and symbolic computing, database, multimedia and Web
       and so forth as well as general experience with Haskell in
       education and industry;
     * Functional Pearls being elegant, instructive examples of using

   Papers in the latter two 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. The
   key criterion for such a paper is that it makes a contribution from
   which other practitioners can benefit. It is not enough simply to
   describe a program!

Submission details
   Submission Deadline: Friday, June 15th 2007
   Author Notification: Monday, July 16th 2007
   Final Submission: Friday, August 3rd 2007

   Submitted papers should be in postscript or portable document format,
   formatted using the ACM SIGPLAN style guidelines 
   (http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigplan/authorInformation.htm). The length
   is restricted to 12 pages.

   Detailed submission instructions will be available at

   Accepted papers will be published by the ACM and will appear in the
   ACM Digital Library.

   If there is sufficient demand, we will try to organise a time slot
   system or tool demonstrations. If you are interested in demonstrating
   a Haskell related tool or application, please send a brief demo
   proposal to Andres Loeh (loeh at informatik.uni-bonn.de).
