[plt-scheme] ICFP 2003 -- Call for Participation

From: Robby Findler (robby at cs.uchicago.edu)
Date: Wed Jul 16 23:37:49 EDT 2003

ICFP (the International Conference on Functional Programming) is coming up
soon -- August 25-29, in Uppsala, Sweden. The following "Call for
Participation" has the important bits, but here are the two key things you
need to know if you are thinking of attending this year:

  - Registration is open *now*.

  - You want to register *well before* July 30 -- the deadline for early
    registration is 7/30, and most hotels will close out their guaranteed
    reservations by then, if not earlier.

I also append the complete program of talks. 

See you in Sweden...
   -Olin Shivers
    program chairman

Call for Participation
ICFP 2003: ACM International Conference on Functional Programming
August 25-29, 2003
Uppsala, Sweden

* About ICFP
The goal of ICFP is to
  - stimulate and promote international research on functional programming, and
  - act as focal point to bring together the functional-programming
    community for intellectual cross-pollination and collaboration.

The scope of the conference includes all languages that encourage programming
with functions, including both purely applicative and imperative languages, as
well as languages that support objects and concurrency. The topics covered
range from principles to practice, from foundations to features, and from
abstractions to applications.

The conference is affiliated with PLI, a confederation of international
meetings sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN, which this year will also include
  - PPDP (International Conference on Principles and Practice of 
    Declarative Programming)
  - LOPSTR (International Symposium on Logic-based Program Synthesis 
    and Transformation)
  - Haskell Workshop
  - Erlang Workshop
  - MERLIN (Mechanised Reasoning About Languages with Variable Binding)
  - DPCOOL (Declarative Programming in the Context of Object-oriented

* Registration now open
Registration is now open and the early registration deadline is July 30th.
NOTE: The cut-off date for guaranteed hotel reservations varies
with the hotel and is typically *before* July 30th. It is advisable to
make your hotel reservations soon.
