ICFP 2016
Sun 18 - Sat 24 September 2016 Nara, Japan

Slides from the talks are available on this webpage, but are hard to find. Click on “talks”, then the talk you are interested in. This should pop up some information about the talk with a button that says “all details” in the bottom left of the page. Click that to go to yet another webpage for the talk. That should have a link to slides.


We proudly announce the SIGPLAN Programming Languages Mentoring Workshop at ICFP. The purpose of this mentoring workshop is to encourage senior undergraduate and beginning graduate students to pursue careers in programming language research. We are specifically interested in attracting groups who have traditionally not had the opportunity to participate in research in functional programming. This workshop will be a combination of learning about the work being done in several areas of programming language research and mentoring with respect to helping students prepare for graduate school and the rest of their career. We will bring together leaders in programming language research from academia and industry to give talks on the kind of research typically performed after obtaining a Ph.D. The workshop will engage students, specifically interested in programming language research, in a process of imagining how they might contribute to the world.

Workshop Focus

Our effort is inspired by and modeled on the highly successful mentoring workshop associated with the POPL conference (PLMW). This workshop has occurred yearly since 2012; we’d like to bring this opportunity to the functional programming community. Our focus for this workshop will be early career graduate students. In particular, we will design the program for the benefit of students entering their first or second year of graduate school. Undergraduates who are seriously considering an academic career will also benefit from the workshop.
