2005 Haskell Workshop

Tallinn, Estonia
30 September, 2005

The Haskell Workshop 2005 is an ACM SIGPLAN sponsored workshop affiliated with the 2005 International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP). Previous Haskell Workshops have been held in La Jolla (1995), Amsterdam (1997), Paris (1999), Montreal (2000), Firenze (2001), Pittsburgh (2002), Uppsala (2003), and Snowbird (2004).

General information


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:

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 (

Important Dates for authors


Authors should submit papers in postscript or portable document format (pdf), formatted for A4 paper, to Daan Leijen ( 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, template.tex, 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.
