The Haskell Workshop 2005 is an
ACM SIGPLAN sponsored workshop affiliated with the
International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP).
Previous Haskell Workshops have been
held in La Jolla (1995), Amsterdam
The purpose of the Haskell Workshop is to discuss experience with Haskell,
and future developments for the language. The scope of the
workshop 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:
- Language Design,
with a focus on possible extensions and modifications of Haskell as
well as critical discussions of the status quo;
in the form of a formal treatment of the semantics of the present language
or future extensions, type systems, and foundations for program analysis
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;
in the form of profilers, tracers, debuggers, pre-processors, and so
- Applications, Practice, and Experience,
with 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;
- Functional Pearls,
being elegant, instructive examples of using Haskell.
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!
If there is sufficient demand, we will try to organise 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 the program chair (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Important Dates for authors
- Submission: June 10
- Notification: July 6
- Final version: July 19
Authors should submit papers in postscript or portable document format (pdf),
formatted for A4 paper, to Daan Leijen (email@example.com). The
length should be restricted to 12 pages in standard (two-column, 9pt) ACM format. In particular,
LaTeX users should use the most recent sigplan proceedings style [sigplanconf.cls,
guide.pdf]. Furthermore, the abbrv style should be used for the bibliography. Accepted papers are published by the ACM and appear in the ACM digital library.
Each paper should explain its contributions in both general and technical terms, clearly identifying what has been accomplished, explaining why it is significant, and comparing it with previous work. Authors should strive to make the technical content of their papers understandable to a broad audience.
