Call for Papers
IFL 2009
Seton Hall University

The 21st IFL symposium, IFL 2009, will be held for the first time in
the USA. The hosting institution is Seton Hall University in South
Orange, NJ, USA and the symposium dates are September 23-25, 2009. It
is our goal to make IFL a regular event held in the USA. The goal of
the IFL symposia is to bring together researchers actively engaged in
the implementation and application of functional and function-based
programming languages. IFL 2009 will be a venue for researchers to
present and discuss new ideas and concepts, work in progress, and
publication-ripe results related to the implementation and application
of functional languages and function-based programming.

Following the IFL tradition, IFL 2009 will use a post-symposium review
process to produce a formal proceedings which we expect to be
published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science
series. All participants in IFL 2009 are invited to submit either a
draft paper or and extended abstract describing work to be presented
at the symposium.  These submissions will be screened by the program
committee chair to make sure they are within the scope of IFL and will
appear in the draft proceedings distributed at the
symposium. Submissions appearing in the draft proceedings are not
peer-reviewed publications. After the symposium, authors will be given
the opportunity to incorporate the feedback from discussions at the
symposium and will be invited to submit a revised full arcticle for
the formal review process. These revised submissions will be reviewed
by the program committee using prevailing academic standards to select
the best articles that will appear in the formal proceedings.


IFL welcomes submissions describing practical and theoretical as well
as submissions describing applications and tools.
If you are not sure if your work is appropriate for IFL 2009, please
contact the PC chair at ifl2009 at shu.edu. Topics of
interest include, but are not limited to:

 language concepts
 type checking
 compilation techniques
 staged compilation
 runtime function specialization
 runtime code generation
 partial evaluation
 (abstract) interpretation
 generic programming techniques
 automatic program generation
 array processing
 concurrent/parallel programming
 concurrent/parallel program execution
 functional programming and embedded systems
 functional programming and web applications
 functional programming and security
 novel memory management techniques
 runtime profiling and performance measurements
 debugging and tracing
 virtual/abstract machine architectures
 validation and verification of functional programs
 tools and programming techniques


Prospective authors are encouraged to submit papers or extended
abstracts 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 Department of Mathematics
and Computer Science of Seton Hall University.
