International Workshop on Trends in Functional Programming in Education 2012
June 11 2012
University of St Andrews, Scotland

The first International Workshop on Trends in Functional Programming
in Education, TFPIE 2012, will be co-located with TFP 2012 at the
University of St Andrews in Scotland. The goal of TFPIE is to gather
researchers, professors, teachers, and all professionals that use or
are interested in the use of functional programming in education.
TFPIE aims to be a venue where novel ideas, classroom-tested ideas,
and work in progress on the use of functional programming in education
are discussed. The one-day workshop will foster a spirit of open
discussion by having a review process for publication after the

The program chairs of TFPIE 2012 will screen submissions to ensure
that all presentations are within scope and are of interest to
participants. Potential presenters are invited to submit an extended
abstract (4-6 pages) or an article (up to 16 pages). The authors of
all accepted presentations will have their preprints and their slides
made available on the workshop's website/wiki. Any visitors to the
TFPIE 2012 website/wiki will be able to add comments. This includes
presenters who may respond to comments and questions as well as
provide pointers to improvements and follow-up work. After the
workshop, the program committee will review, using prevailing academic
standards, the articles accepted for presentation to select the best
for publication in Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer
Science (EPTCS). Articles rejected for presentation and all extended
abstracts will not be formally reviewed by the PC.


TFPIE 2012 welcomes submissions describing practical techniques used
in the classroom, tools used and/or developed, and any creative use of
functional programming (FP) to aid education in or outside Computer
Science. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

FP and beginning CS students
FP in Artificial Intelligence
FP in Robotics
FP and Music
Advanced FP for undergraduates
FP in graduate education
Engaging students in research using FP
FP in Programming Languages
FP in the high school curriculum
FP as a stepping stone to other CS topics
FP and Philosophy
