The  symposium  on  Trends  in  Functional  Programming  (TFP)  is  an
international forum  for researchers with interests in  all aspects of
functional  programming, taking  a broad  view of  current  and future
trends  in  the area.   It  aspires to  be  a  lively environment  for
presenting the  latest research results, and  other contributions (see
below), described in draft papers  submitted prior to the symposium. A
formal post-symposium refereeing process  then selects a subset of the
articles  presented   at  the  symposium  and   submitted  for  formal

Selected  papers will  be published  as  a Springer  Lecture Notes  in
Computer Science (LNCS: http://www.springer.com/lncs) volume.

TFP 2012  will be the main  event of a week  of functional programming
extravaganza at the University of St Andrews. The week will start with
the  International Workshop  on  Trends in  Functional Programming  in
Education,  followed by TFP,  followed by  a workshop  on 75  years of
Lambda Calculus, an  Erlang day, and a technical  workshop on Patterns
for MultiCores (ParaPhrase/Release projects).

The TFP  symposium is  the heir of  the successful series  of Scottish
Functional Programming  Workshops. Previous TFP symposia  were held in
Edinburgh (Scotland) in 2003, in  Munich (Germany) in 2004, in Tallinn
(Estonia) in  2005, in Nottingham (UK)  in 2006, in New  York (USA) in
2007, in Nijmegen (The Netherlands)  in 2008, in Komarno (Slovakia) in
2009, in Oklahoma  (USA) in 2010, and in Madrid  (Spain) in 2011.  For
further general information  about TFP please see the  TFP homepage at
