Haskell Symposium 2010
Baltimore MD, United States
|Submission Deadline <> Programme Committee|
Haskell Symposium 2010 will be
co-located with the
International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP),
in Baltimore, Maryland.
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:
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
(More advice will appear on this page, shortly.)
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.
Papers must be submitted online via EasyChair.
Submitted papers should be in portable document format (PDF),
SIGPLAN style guidelines. 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
republication policy. Violation risks summary rejection of the
Accepted papers will be published by the ACM and will appear in the ACM
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.
