The 2022 Scheme and Functional Programming Workshop is calling for 

We invite high-quality papers and talk proposals about novel research 
results, lessons learned from practical experience in an industrial or 
educational setting, and even new insights on old ideas.  We welcome and 
encourage submissions that apply to any dynamic functional language, 
especially those that can be considered a Scheme: from strict subsets of 
RnRS to other "Scheme" implementations, to Racket, to Lisp dialects 
including Clojure, Emacs Lisp, Common Lisp, to functional languages with 
continuations and/or macros (or extended to have them) such as Dylan, 
ECMAScript, Hop, Lua, Scala, Rust, etc.  The elegance of the paper and the 
relevance of its topic to the interests of Schemers will matter more than 
the surface syntax of the examples used.


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

   - Interaction: program-development environments, debugging, testing, 
   - Implementation: interpreters, compilers, tools, garbage collectors, 
   - Extension: macros, hygiene, domain-specific languages, reflection, and 
   how such extension affects interaction
   - Expression: control, modularity, ad hoc and parametric polymorphism, 
   types, aspects, ownership models, concurrency, distribution, parallelism, 
   non-determinism, probabilism, and other programming paradigms
   - Integration: build tools, deployment, interoperation with other 
   languages and systems
   - Formal semantics: theory, analyses and transformations, partial 
   - Human factors: past, present and future history, evolution and 
   sociology of the language Scheme, its standard and its dialects
   - Education: approaches, experiences, curricula
   - Applications: industrial uses of Scheme
   - Scheme pearls: elegant, instructive uses of Scheme


   - Submission deadline is 2022-07-22.
   - Authors will be notified by 2022-08-15.
   - Camera-ready versions are due 2022-09-02.
   - Workshop will be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia on 2022-09-16.

All deadlines are 23:59 UTC-12, anywhere on Earth.

*Submission Information*

We encourage all kinds of submissions, including full papers, experience 
reports, and lightning talks.  Papers and experience reports are expected 
to be 10–24 pages in length using the single-column SIGPLAN acmart style. 
 (For reference, this is about 5–12 pages of the older SIGPLAN 2-column 9pt 
style.)  Abstracts submitted for lightning talks should be limited to 192 

Authors of each accepted submission are invited to attend and be available 
for the presentation of that paper at the conference.  The schedule for 
presentations will be determined and shared with authors after the full 
program has been selected.

The size limits above exclude references and any optional appendices. 
 There are no size limits on appendices, but the papers should stand 
without the need to read them, and reviewers are not required to read them.

Authors are encouraged to publish any code associated to their papers under 
an open source license, so that reviewers may try the code and verify the 

Proceedings will be uploaded to

Publication of a paper at this workshop is not intended to replace 
conference or journal publication, and does not preclude re-publication of 
a more complete or finished version of the paper at some later conference 
or in a journal.

Please submit papers through the workshop's HotCRP site 

*Lightweight double-blind reviewing*

Scheme 2022 will use lightweight double-blind reviewing.  Submitted papers 
must omit author names and institutions and reference the authors’ own 
related work in the third person (e.g., not “we build on our previous 
work…” but rather “we build on the work of…”).

The purpose is to help the reviewers come to an initial judgment about the 
paper without bias, not to make it impossible for them to discover the 
authors if they were to try.  Nothing should be done in the name of 
anonymity that weakens the submission or makes the job of reviewing the 
paper more difficult (e.g., important background references should not be 
omitted or anonymized).

*Formatting Information*

Full papers and experience reports should use the SIGPLAN acmsmall option 
to acmart.  We recommend using the anonymous and review options 
to acmart when submitting a paper; these options hide the author names and 
enable line numbers for easy reference in review.  LaTeX and Microsoft Word 
templates for this format are available through SIGPLAN 

Lightning talks can be submitted as either a text file or a PDF file.

*International Conference on Functional Programming*

The Scheme Workshop 2022 is being held as part of this year's International 
Conference on Functional Programming.  Here is the ICFP site 
<> for the workshop.
