ACM SIGPLAN Haskell Symposium 2010
Baltimore MD, United States
30th September, 2010
FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS
The ACM SIGPLAN Haskell Symposium 2010 will be co-located with the
2010 International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP), in
The purpose of the Haskell Symposium is to discuss experiences with
Haskell and future developments for the language. The scope of the
symposium includes all aspects of the design, semantics, theory,
application, implementation, and teaching of Haskell.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Language Design, with a focus on possible extensions and
modifications of Haskell as well as critical discussions of the
* Theory, such as formal treatments 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 suchlike;
* Functional Pearls, being elegant, instructive examples of using
* Applications, Practice, and Experience, using Haskell for
scientific and symbolic computing, database, multimedia and Web
applications, and so forth, as well as general experience with
Haskell in education and industry.
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, reusable
programming idioms, or elegant new ways of approaching a
problem. (More advice appears on the symposium webpage.)
The key criterion for such a paper is that it makes a
contribution from which other Haskellers can benefit. It is not
enough simply to describe a program!
Before 2008, the Haskell Symposium was known as the Haskell
Workshop. The name change reflects both the steady increase of
influence of the Haskell Workshop on the wider community, as well as
the increasing number of high quality submissions. The selection
process is highly competitive. After eleven Haskell Workshops
between 1995 and 2007, the first Haskell Symposium was held in
Victoria in 2008, and the second in Edinburgh in 2009.
* Submission Deadline: Monday, 14th June 2010, 15:00 UTC
* Author Notification: Monday, 12th July 2010
* Final Papers Due : Monday, 2nd August 2010
Submitted papers should be in portable document format (PDF),
formatted using the ACM SIGPLAN style guidelines
(http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigplan/authorInformation.htm). The text
should be in a 9pt font in two columns; the length is restricted to
12 pages, except for "Applications, Practice, and Experience"
papers, which are restricted to 6 pages. Each submission must
adhere to SIGPLAN's republication policy, as explained on the web.
Violation risks summary rejection of the offending submission.
Accepted papers will be published by the ACM and will appear in the
ACM Digital Library.
In addition, we solicit proposals for system demonstrations, based
on running (perhaps prototype) software rather than necessarily on
novel research results. Proposals are limited to 2-page abstracts,
in the same ACM format as papers, and should explain why a
demonstration would be of interest to the Haskell community. They
will be assessed for relevance by the PC; accepted proposals will
be published on the Symposium website, but not formally published
in the proceedings.
