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 and full papers. A formal
post-symposium refereeing process selects the best articles presented
at the symposium for publication in a high-profile volume.

TFP 2008 is hosted by the Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands,
and will be held in the rural setting of Center Parcs “Het Heijderbos”,
Heijen (in the vicinity of Nijmegen), The Netherlands.

TFP 2008 is co-located with the 6th Int’l. Summer School on Advanced
Functional Programming (AFP’08), which is held immediately before TFP’08.
