Scope and Topics

The IFL  workshops form a  tradition that  has lasted for nearly two decades. 
The aim of these workshops is to bring  together researchers actively engaged 
in  the  implementation  and  application  of  functional and  function-based 
programming languages. They provide an open forum for researchers who wish to 
present  and  discuss new ideas and concepts, work  in  progress, preliminary 
results, etc. related primarily but not exclusively to the implementation and 
application of functional languages.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* language concepts
* concurrent/parallel programming
* type checking
* concurrent/parallel program execution
* compilation techniques
* heap management
* generic programming techniques
* runtime profiling
* (abstract) interpretation
* performance measurements
* automatic program generation
* debugging and tracing
* (abstract) machine architectures
* verification
* formal aspects
* tools and programming techniques
* array processing
* demos of well working, useable tools and  applications
              in functional languages

    Papers on applications demonstrating  the  suitability of novel ideas in any 
of the above areas and contributions on  related  theoretical work are also 
welcomed. The change of the workshop name adding the term "application", 
introduced in 2004, is to reflect the broader scope IFL has gained over recent 

    Prospective authors are encouraged to submit papers to be published in the 
proceedings and to give  presentations at  the workshop. All contributions must 
written in English, conform to the Springer-Verlag LNCS series format.

    Attendees at IFL'06  will  have  an opportunity  to  submit a revised 
version of their  paper  for  post-workshop  reviewing.  Selected papers will 
be  published by Springer Verlag in the well-known Lecture Notes in Computer 
Science  (LNCS) Series, as  has  been a long-standing  tradition  for  the  IFL
