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 
following the 2017 TFP meeting on 19–21 June. TFPIE workshops have previously 
held in St Andrews, Scotland (2012), Provo Utah, USA (2013), Soesterberg, The 
Netherlands (2014), and Sophia-Antipolis, France (2015), College Park, USA 

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 
The program chair of TFPIE 2017 will screen submissions to ensure that all 
are within scope and are of interest to participants. After the workshop, 
will be invited to submit revised versions of their articles for publication in 
journal Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS). 

Call for papers

TFPIE 2017 welcomes submissions describing techniques used in the classroom, 
tools 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 interest 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? 
either case, please consider sharing it. Best lecture topics will be selected 
presentation based on a short abstract describing the lecture and its interest 


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 
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 
The PC will select the best articles for publication in the journal Electronic 
Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS). Articles rejected for 
and extended abstracts will not be formally reviewed by the PC.
