Registration and talk submission deadline fast approaching: August 23, 2009


The 21st International Symposium on Implementation and Application of Functional Languages, IFL 2009, will be held
for the first time in the USA. The hosting institution is Seton Hall University in South Orange, NJ, USA and the
symposium dates are September 23-25, 2009. It is our goal to make IFL a regular event held in the USA and in
Europe. The goal of the IFL symposia is to bring together researchers actively engaged in the implementation and
application of functional and function-based programming languages. IFL 2009 will be a venue for researchers to
present and discuss new ideas and concepts, work in progress, and publication-ripe results related to the
implementation and application of functional languages and function-based programming.

Following the IFL tradition, IFL 2009 will use a post-symposium review process to produce a formal proceedings which
will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. All participants in IFL 2009 are
invited to submit either a draft paper or an extended abstract describing work to be presented at the symposium.
These submissions will be screened by the program committee chair to make sure they are within the scope of IFL and will
appear in the draft proceedings distributed at the symposium. Submissions appearing in the draft proceedings are not
peer-reviewed publications. After the symposium, authors will be given the opportunity to incorporate the feedback from
discussions at the symposium and will be invited to submit a revised full arcticle for the formal review process. These
revised submissions will be reviewed by the program committee using prevailing academic standards to select the best
articles that will appear in the formal proceedings.

Invited Speaker:

    Benjamin C. Pierce
    University of Pennsylvania
    Talk Title: How To Build Your Own Bidirectional Programming Language


IFL welcomes submissions describing practical and theoretical work as well as submissions describing applications and tools.
