CALL FOR PAPERS Trends in Functional Programming 2007 New York, USA April 2-4, 2007 http://tltc.shu.edu/tfp2007/ OR http://cs.shu.edu/tfp2007/ The symposium on Trends in Functional Programming (TFP) is an international forum for researchers with interests in all aspects of functional programming languages, focusing on providing a broad view of current and future trends in Functional Programming. It aspires to be a lively environment for presenting the latest research results through acceptance by extended abstracts. A formal post-symposium refereeing process then selects the best articles presented at the symposium for publication in a high-profile volume. TFP 2007 is co-hosted by Seton Hall University and The City College of New York (CCNY) and will be held in New York, USA, April 2-4, 2007 at the CCNY campus. The TFP symposium is the successor to the successful series of Scottish Functional Programming Workshops. Previous TFP symposia were held in Edinburgh, Scotland in 2003 (co-located with IFL), in Munich, Germany in 2004, in Tallinn, Estonia in 2005 (co-located with ICFP and GPCE), and in Nottingham, UK in 2006 (co-located with Types). For further general information about TFP please see the TFP homepage at http://cs.shu.edu/tfp2007/ . SCOPE OF THE SYMPOSIUM The symposium recognizes that new trends may arise through various routes. As part of the Symposium's focus on trends we therefore identify the following five article categories. High-quality articles are solicited in any of these categories: Research Articles leading-edge, previously unpublished research work Position Articles on what new trends should or should not be Project Articles descriptions of recently started new projects Evaluation Articles what lessons can be drawn from a finished project Overview Articles summarizing work with respect to a trendy subject Articles must be original and not submitted for simultaneous publication to any other forum. They may consider any aspect of functional programming: theoretical, implementation-oriented, or more experience-oriented. Applications of functional programming techniques to other languages are also within the scope of the symposium. Articles on the following subject areas are particularly welcomed: o Dependently Typed Functional Programming o Validation and Verification of Functional Programs o Debugging for Functional Languages o Functional Programming and Security o Functional Programming and Mobility o Functional Programming to Animate/Prototype/Implement Systems from Formal or Semi-Formal Specifications o Functional Languages for Telecommunications Applications o Functional Languages for Embedded Systems o Functional Programming Applied to Global Computing o Functional GRIDs o Functional Programming Ideas in Imperative or Object-Oriented Settings (and the converse) o Interoperability with Imperative Programming Languages o Novel Memory Management Techniques o Parallel/Concurrent Functional Languages o Program Transformation Techniques o Empirical Performance Studies o Abstract/Virtual Machines and Compilers for Functional Languages o New Implementation Strategies o any new emerging trend in the functional programming area If you are in doubt on whether your article is within the scope of TFP, please contact the TFP 2007 program chair, Marco T. Morazan, at tfp2007 at shu.edu. BEST STUDENT PAPER AWARD TFP traditionally pays special attention to research students, acknowledging that students are almost by definition part of new subject trends. A prize for the best student paper is awarded each year. SUBMISSION AND DRAFT PROCEEDINGS Acceptance of articles for presentation at the symposium is based on the review of extended abstracts (6 to 10 pages in length) by the program committee. Accepted abstracts are to be completed to full papers before the symposium for publication in the draft proceedings and on-line. The submission must clearly indicate to which category it belongs to: research, position, project, evaluation, or overview paper. It should also indicate whether the main author or authors are research students. Formatting details can be found at the TFP 2007 website. Submission procedures will be posted on the TFP 2007 website as the submission deadline is reached. The papers in the draft proceedings will also be made available on-line under the following conditions, with which all authors are asked to agree: The documents distributed by this server have been provided by the contributing authors as a means to ensure timely dissemination of scholarly and technical work on a noncommercial basis.

It is understood that all persons copying this information will adhere to the terms and constraints invoked by each author's copyright. These works may not be reposted without the explicit permission of the copyright holder. POST-SYMPOSIUM REFEREEING AND PUBLICATION In addition to the draft symposium proceedings, we intend to continue the TFP tradition of publishing a high-quality subset of contributions in the Intellect series on Trends in Functional Programming. All TFP authors will be invited to submit revised papers after the symposium. These will be refereed using normal conference standards and a subset of the best papers, over all categories, will be selected for publication. Papers will be judged on their contribution to the research area with appropriate criteria applied to each category of paper. Student papers will be given extra feedback by the Program Committee in order to assist those unfamiliar with the publication process.
