			  2007 Workshop on Scheme and
			    Functional Programming

		    Freiburg, Germany --- 30 September 2007

The 2007 Scheme Workshop is a forum for discussing experience with and future
development of the Scheme programming language.  The scope of the workshop
includes all aspects of the design, implementation, theory, and application of
Scheme.  We encourage everyone interested in Scheme to participate.

This workshop forms part of the 2007 International Conference on Functional
Programming (ICFP) as an associated, ACM SIGPLAN sponsored event.

Topics of interest for technical papers include (but are not limited to):

Design.  Language critiques and extensions, concurrency and distribution,
     components and composition, language embedding, object systems, type
     systems, exception handling, syntactic abstraction, module systems and
     libraries, multiparadigm programming, scripting.

Implementation.  Compilers, interpreters, runtime systems, virtual machines,
     resource management, program analysis and transformation, partial
     evaluation, compile-time and run-time optimization, foreign function and
     operating system interfaces, embedded systems.

Development tools.  Profilers, tracers, debuggers, program development
     environments, program understanding tools, performance and conformance
     test suites.

Theory.  Formal semantics, correctness of analyses and transformations, lambda
     calculus, continuations, program verification.

Education.  Teaching Scheme, teaching with Scheme.

Topics of interest for experience papers include (but are not limited to):

Applications.  Domain-specific languages, graphical user interfaces, web
     programming, network applications, multimedia programming, systems
     programming, symbolic computing, large systems, use of Scheme as a
     scripting language.

Practice and experience.  Experience with Scheme in education and industry.

Scheme pearls.  Elegant, instructive uses of Scheme.

Experience papers need not necessarily report original research results; they
may instead report practical experience that will be useful to others,
re-usable programming idioms, or elegant new ways of approaching a problem.
The key criterion for such a paper is that it makes a contribution from which
other practitioners can benefit.  It is not enough simply to describe a

System Demonstrations.  Authors of both technical and experience papers are
invited to describe, in an appendix, proposals for system demonstrations to be
given during the workshop.

Panel Discussions.  We also invite proposals for panel discussions on topics of
interest to the Scheme community.  Authors of accepted proposals will give a
brief presentation on the topic and then moderate the discussion that follows.
