Call for Papers




Haskell Symposium 2016

Nara, Japan, 22–23 September 2016 (directly after ICFP)

About

The ACM SIGPLAN Haskell Symposium 2016 will be co-located with the 2016 International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP), in Nara, Japan.

The Haskell Symposiqum aims to present original research on Haskell, discuss practical experience and future development of the language, and to promote other forms of denotative programming.

Topics of interest include:

  • Language Design, with a focus on possible extensions and modifications of Haskell as well as critical discussions of the status quo;

  • Theory, such as formal semantics of the present language or future extensions, type systems, effects, metatheory, and foundations for program analysis and transformation;

  • Implementations, including program analysis and transformation, static and dynamic compilation for sequential, parallel, and distributed architectures, memory management, as well as foreign function and component interfaces;

  • Libraries, that demonstrate new ideas or techniques for functional programming in Haskell;

  • Tools, such as profilers, tracers, debuggers, preprocessors, and testing tools;

  • Applications, to scientific and symbolic computing, databases, multimedia, telecommunication, the web, and so forth;

  • Functional Pearls, being elegant and instructive programming examples;

  • Experience Reports, to document general practice and experience in education, industry, or other contexts.

Papers in the latter three categories need not necessarily report original academic research results. For example, they may instead report reusable programming idioms, elegant ways to approach a problem, or practical experience that will be useful to other users, implementors, or researchers. The key criterion for such a paper is that it makes a contribution from which other Haskellers can benefit. It is not enough simply to describe a standard solution to a standard programming problem, or report on experience where you used Haskell in the standard way and achieved the result you were expecting. More advice is available via the Haskell wiki.

Regular papers should explain their research contributions in both general and technical terms, identifying what has been accomplished, explaining why it is significant, and relating it to previous work, and to other languages where appropriate.

In addition, we solicit proposals for:

  • System Demonstrations, based on running software rather than novel research results.

These proposals should summarize the system capabilities that would be demonstrated. The proposals will be judged on whether the ensuing session is likely to be important and interesting to the Haskell community at large, whether on grounds academic or industrial, theoretical or practical, technical, social or artistic. Please contact the program chair with any questions about the relevance of a proposal.

Travel Support

Student attendees with accepted papers can apply for a SIGPLAN PAC grant to help cover travel expenses. PAC also offers other support, such as for child-care expenses during the meeting or for travel costs for companions of SIGPLAN members with physical disabilities, as well as for travel from locations outside of North America and Europe.

Proceedings

Accepted papers will be included in the ACM Digital Library. Authors must grant ACM publication rights upon acceptance. Authors are encouraged to publish auxiliary material with their paper (source code, test data, etc.); they retain copyright of auxiliary material.

Accepted proposals for system demonstrations will be posted on the symposium website but not formally published in the proceedings.

All accepted papers and proposals will be posted on the conference website one week before the meeting.

Publication date: The official publication date of accepted papers is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of the conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.

Submission Details

Submitted papers should be in portable document format (PDF), formatted using the ACM SIGPLAN style guidelines. The text should be in a 9-point font in two columns. The length is restricted to 12 pages, except for “Experience Report” papers, which are restricted to 6 pages. Papers need not fill the page limit—for example, a Functional Pearl may be much shorter than 12 pages. Each paper submission must adhere to SIGPLAN’s republication policy.

Demo proposals are limited to 2-page abstracts, in the same ACM format as papers.

“Functional Pearls”, “Experience Reports”, and “Demo Proposals” should be marked as such with those words in the title at time of submission.

The paper submission deadline and length limitations are firm. There will be no extensions, and papers violating the length limitations will be summarily rejected.

Papers may be submitted at https://icfp-haskell2016.hotcrp.com/.

Submission Timetable

Early Track Regular Track System Demos
1st April   Paper Submission
20th May Notification
6th June  Abstract Submission 
10th June Paper Submission
17th June Resubmission Demo Submission
8th July Notification Notification Notification
31st July Camera ready due Camera ready due

Deadlines stated are valid anywhere on earth.

The Haskell Symposium uses a two-track submission process so that some papers can gain early feedback. Papers can be submitted to the early track on 1st April. On 20th May, strong papers are accepted outright, and the others will be given their reviews and invited to resubmit. On 17th June, early track papers may be resubmitted and are sent back to the same reviewers. The Haskell Symposium regular track operates as in previous years. Papers accepted via the early and regular tracks are considered of equal value and will not be distinguished in the proceedings.

Although all papers may be submitted to the early track, authors of functional pearls and experience reports are particularly encouraged to use this mechanism. The success of these papers depends heavily on the way they are presented, and submitting early will give the program committee a chance to provide feedback and help draw out the key ideas.
