Commercial Users of Functional Programming Workshop (CUFP) 2010 Call for Participation Sponsored by SIGPLAN Co-located with ICFP 2010 _________________________________________________________ 1 - 2 October 2010 Baltimore (MD), USA http://cufp.org/conference/schedule/2010 Reservation will be available through ICFP's website: http://www.icfpconference.org/icfp2010 _________________________________________________________ Functional programming languages have been a hot topic of academic research for over 35 years, and have seen an ever larger practical impact in settings ranging from tech startups to financial firms to biomedical research labs. At the same time, a vigorous community of practically-minding functional programmers has come into existence. CUFP is designed to serve this community. The annual CUFP workshop is a place where people can see how others are using functional programming to solve real world problems; where practitioners meet and collaborate; where language designers and users can share ideas about the future of their favorite language; and where one can learn practical techniques and approaches for putting functional programming to work. CUFP 2010 will feature three hour Functional Programming tutorials given by language experts on the first day and Experience and Technical Talks on day two. Attendees may attend either or both days.
