ACM In-Cooperation / ACM SIGPLAN

AUGUST 28 - 30 2013

"Landgoed Holthurnsche Hof"


We are proud to announce that the 25th edition of the IFL series returns to its roots at 
the Radboud University Nijmegen in the Netherlands. The symposium is held from 28th 
to 30th of August 2013.

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 2013 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 2013 will use a post-symposium review process to 
produce the formal proceedings which will be published in the ACM Digital Library. All 
participants of IFL 2013 are invited to submit either a draft paper or an extended 
abstract describing work to be presented at the symposium. At no time may work submitted 
to IFL be simultaneously submitted to other venues; submissions must adhere to 
ACM SIGPLAN's republication policy:


The 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 Submissions appearing in the draft proceedings are not peer-reviewed 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. Hence, publications that appear only in the draft proceedings do not 
count as publication for the ACM SIGPLAN republication policy. 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 article for the formal 
review process. From the revised submissions, the program committee will select papers 
for the formal proceedings considering their correctness, novelty, originality, 
relevance, significance, and clarity. 

Invited Speaker
Lennart Augustsson, currently employed by the Standard Chartered Bank, well-known for 
his work on Haskell, parallel Haskell, Cayenne, and Bluespec, is the invited speaker of 
IFL 2013. He will be talking about practical applications of functional programming.

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. Papers must adhere to the standard ACM two 
columns conference format. For the pre-symposium proceedings we adopt a 'weak' page limit
of 12 pages. For the post-symposium proceedings the page limit of 12 pages is firm. A 
suitable document template for LaTeX can be found at: 


Papers are to be submitted via the conference's EasyChair submission page: 


IFL welcomes submissions describing practical and theoretical work as well as submissions
describing applications and tools in the context of functional programming. If you are 
not sure whether your work is appropriate for IFL 2013, please contact the PC chair at 
rinus at cs.ru.nl. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:  

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

Peter Landin Prize
The Peter Landin Prize is awarded to the best paper presented at the symposium every 
year. The honoured article is selected by the program committee based on the submissions 
received for the formal review process. The prize carries a cash award equivalent to 
150 Euros.
