Jane Street Capital has joined IFL 2009 as a sponsor

The 21st International Symposium on Implementation and Application of
Functional Languages, 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 September 23-25, 2009. It is our goal to make IFL a
regular event held in the USA and in
Europe. 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

Following the IFL tradition, IFL 2009 will use a post-symposium review
process to produce a formal proceedings which
will 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 an 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appearing in the draft proceedings are not
peer-reviewed publications.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 work as
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 removed_email_address@domain.invalid. 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
FP in Education


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.
