Dear All,

IFL welcomes Schemers! See the CFP below and
http://events.sac-home.org/ifl2008/ .



Call for Papers
The aim of the IFL symposia 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. Formal proceedings are produced after the symposium, so
that authors can incorporate the feedback from discussions at the
symposium in their published papers.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

language concepts
type checking
compilation techniques
(abstract) interpretation
generic programming techniques
automatic program generation
array processing
concurrent/parallel programming
concurrent/parallel program execution
functional programming on embedded systems
functional programming on multi-cores/ many-cores
heap management
runtime profiling
performance measurements
debugging and tracing
(abstract) machine architectures
formal aspects
tools and programming techniques

Papers on applications or tools 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 symposium name
adding the term "application", introduced in 2004, is to reflect the
broader scope IFL has gained over the years.

Paper Submissions
Prospective authors are encouraged to submit papers to be published in
the draft proceedings and to present them at the symposium. All
contributions must be written in English, conform to the
Springer-Verlag LNCS series format and not exceed 16 pages. The draft
proceedings will appear as a Technical Report of the School of
Computer Science of the University of Hertfordshire.

Attendees of IFL 2008 will have the opportunity to submit a revised
version of their paper for post-symposium reviewing. As in previous
years, we hope that selected papers will be published by Springer
Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series.

The Peter Landin Prize
Since 2002 every year the Peter Landin Prize of €150 is awarded to the
best paper presented at the symposium, as selected by the program
