Dear Colleagues,

My apologies if you receive this more than once on different lists.

Please consider submitting your novel ideas and classroom techniques to TFPIE 
2017. The call for papers is below with detailed information. Keep in mind that 
the deadline for submission is approaching, but only an abstract is required to 
be accepted for presentation. The full review process occurs post-workshop.

I hope to see you at TFPIE 2017.

Best wishes,


TFPIE 2017

Trends in Functional Programming in Education, 2017

The sixth workshop on Trends in Functional Programming in Education, 2017,
which is to be held on the Canterbury campus of the University of Kent on
Thursday, 22 June, following the 2017 TFP meeting on 19–21 June. TFPIE
workshops have previously been held in St Andrews, Scotland (2012), Provo
Utah, USA (2013), Soesterberg, The Netherlands (2014), and Sophia-Antipolis,
France (2015), College Park, USA (2016).

A particular topic of this year's TFPIE will be MOOCs and other online learning
and, as well as a session on this, we're delighed to announce that Heather 
of EFPL and Northeastern University will be giving a keynote on this topic.
Heather works on and around the Scala programming language and is Executive
Director of the Scala Center. We'll also have MOOC expertise from the OCaml MOOC
team, Jeremy Singer (Haskell), and Simon Thompson (Erlang).

The goal of TFPIE is to gather researchers, teachers and professionals that 
use, or
are interested in the use of, functional programming in education. TFPIE aims 
to be a
venue where novel ideas, classroom-tested ideas and work-in-progress on the use 
functional programming in education are discussed. The one-day workshop will 
foster a
spirit of open discussion by having a review process for publication after the
workshop. The program chair of TFPIE 2017 will screen submissions to ensure 
that all
presentations are within scope and are of interest to participants. After the
workshop, presenters will be invited to submit revised versions of their 
articles for
publication in the journal Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer 

Third call for papers

TFPIE 2017 welcomes submissions describing techniques used in the classroom, 
used in and/or developed for the classroom and any creative use of functional
programming (FP) to aid education in or outside Computer Science. Topics of 
include, but are not limited to:


- FP and beginning CS students
- FP and Computational Thinking
- FP and Artificial Intelligence
- FP in Robotics
- FP and Music
- Advanced FP for undergraduates
- FP in graduate education
- Engaging students in research using FP
- FP in Programming Languages
- FP in the high school curriculum
- FP as a stepping stone to other CS topics
- FP and Philosophy
- The pedagogy of teaching FP
- FP and e-learning: MOOCs, automated assessment etc.
- Best Lectures – more details below

In addition to papers, we are requesting best lecture presentations. What’s 
your best
lecture topic in an FP related course? Do you have a fun way to present FP 
concepts to
novices or perhaps an especially interesting presentation of a difficult topic? 
In either
case, please consider sharing it. Best lecture topics will be selected for 
based on a short abstract describing the lecture and its interest to TFPIE 


Potential presenters are invited to submit an extended abstract (4-6 pages) or 
a draft
paper (up to 16 pages) in EPTCS style. The authors of accepted presentations 
will have
their preprints and their slides made available on the workshop's website. 

Papers and
abstracts can be submitted via easychair at the following link:

After the workshop
Presenters will be invited to submit (a revised version of) their article for 
review. The
PC will select the best articles for publication in the journal Electronic 
Proceedings in
Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS). Articles rejected for presentation and 
abstracts will not be formally reviewed by the PC.
