IFL 2009: Call for Papers

Call for Papers
IFL 2009
Seton Hall University

The 21st IFL symposium, IFL 2009, will be held for the first time in the
USA. The hosting institution is Seton Hall
University in South Orange, NJ, USA and the symposium dates are
23-25, 2009. It is our goal to make IFL a
regular event held in the USA. The goal of the IFL symposia is to bring
together researchers actively engaged in the
implementation and application of functional and function-based
programming languages. IFL 2009 will be a venue for
researchers to present and discuss new ideas and concepts, work in
progress, and publication-ripe results related to
the implementation and application of functional languages and
function-based programming.

Following the IFL tradition, IFL 2009 will use a post-symposium review
process to produce a formal proceedings which we
expect to be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer
Science series. All participants in IFL 2009 are
invited to submit either a draft paper or and extended abstract
work to be presented at the symposium.
These submissions will be screened by the program committee chair to
sure they are within the scope of IFL and will
appear in the draft proceedings distributed at the symposium.
appearing in the draft proceedings are not
peer-reviewed publications. After the symposium, authors will be given
opportunity to incorporate the feedback from
discussions at the symposium and will be invited to submit a revised
arcticle for the formal review process. These
revised submissions will be reviewed by the program committee using
prevailing academic standards to select the best
articles that will appear in the formal proceedings.


IFL welcomes submissions describing practical and theoretical as well as
submissions describing applications and tools.
If you are not sure if your work is appropriate for IFL 2009, please
contact the PC chair at [email protected] Topics of
interest include, but are not limited to:

language concepts
type checking
compilation techniques
staged compilation
runtime function specialization
runtime code generation
partial evaluation
(abstract) interpretation
generic programming techniques
automatic program generation
array processing
concurrent/parallel programming
concurrent/parallel program execution
functional programming and embedded systems
functional programming and web applications
functional programming and security
novel memory management techniques
runtime profiling and performance measurements
debugging and tracing
virtual/abstract machine architectures
validation and verification of functional programs
tools and programming techniques


Prospective authors are encouraged to submit papers or extended
to be published in the draft proceedings and to
present them at the symposium. All contributions must be written in
English, conform to the Springer-Verlag LNCS series
format and not exceed 16 pages. The draft proceedings will appear as a
technical report of the Department of Mathematics
and Computer Science of Seton Hall University.

The Peter Landin Prize is awarded to the best paper presented at the
symposium every year. The honored article is selected
by the program committee based on the submissions received for the
review process. The prize carries a cash award
equivalent to 150 euros.
