Call for workshop and co-located event proposals

The 21st ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP 2016) will be held in Nara, Japan on September 18–24, 2016. ICFP provides a forum for researchers and developers to hear about the latest work on the design, implementations, principles, and uses of functional programming.

Proposals are invited for workshops (and other co-located events, such as tutorials) to be affiliated with ICFP 2016 and sponsored by SIGPLAN. These events should be less formal and more focused than ICFP itself, include sessions that enable interaction among the attendees, and foster the exchange of new ideas. The preference is for one-day events, but other schedules can also be considered.

The workshops are scheduled to occur on September 18 (the day before ICFP) and September 22–24 (the three days after ICFP).

Submission details

  • Deadline for submission: November 21, 2015
  • Notification of acceptance: December 20, 2015

Prospective organizers of workshops or other co-located events are invited to submit a completed workshop proposal form in plain text format to the ICFP 2016 workshop co-chairs (Andres Löh and Nicolas Wu), via email to icfp2016-workshops@googlegroups.com by November 21, 2015. (For proposals of co-located events other than workshops, please fill in the workshop proposal form and just leave blank any sections that do not apply.) Please note that this is a firm deadline.

Organizers will be notified if their event proposal is accepted by December 29, 2015, and if successful, depending on the event, they will be asked to produce a final report after the event has taken place that is suitable for publication in SIGPLAN Notices.

Further information about SIGPLAN sponsorship is available here.
