The ACM SIGPLAN  Haskell Symposium 2009 will be co-located with the 2009 International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP).

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, the following:

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 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 acceptance process is highly competitive. After eleven Haskell Workshops between 1995 and 2007, the first Haskell Symposium was held in Victoria in 2008

General Information

Important Dates and Deadlines

Submission Details

Papers must be submitted online via EasyChair.

Submitted papers should be in portable document format (PDF), formatted using the ACM SIGPLAN style guidelines. The length is restricted to 12 pages, and the font size 9pt. Each submission must adhere to SIGPLAN's republication policy. Violation risks summary rejection of the offending submission.

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 organize a time slot for system or tool demonstrations. If you are interested in demonstrating a Haskell related tool or application, please send a brief demo proposal to Stephanie Weirich.
