Second Call for PhD student presentation - Call for participation

PhD students are invited to submit the abstract of their
presentations to be included in the workshop session of 
the summer school. The selected and reviewed workshop 
papers and the revised lectures will be published in 
the post-conference LNCS Volume of the Summer School.
The deadline for registration and submissions is

Aims and Scopes:

The Central-European Functional Programming School (CEFP) 
is an intensive summer school series in the field of functional
programming. The main goal is to bring together computer
scientists, researchers, graduate and especially PhD students.
The school would like to promote the research and the education
of the functional programming languages, software technologies
and programming methodologies.

The second CEFP school will be organized by the Babeş-Bolyai
University (Cluj-Napoca / Kolozsvár / Klausenburg) between 
23-30 June, 2007. The previous school was held in Budapest,
Hungary, July, 2005 (LNCS 4164).

The invited lecturers are prominent researchers in the field,
and they will present state-of-the-art functional programming
techniques. Beside the lectures practical courses will be held.
The school includes a workshop for PhD students to present
their work and get feed-back from the lecturers.

Rinus Plasmeijer (Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands): 
iTasks: Defining Interactive Workflows for the Web

Werner Kluge (Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel,
Germany): Abstract Lambda Calculus Machines

Marko van Eekelen (Radboud University Nijmegen, The
Netherlands): Proving Properties of Lazy Functional Programs

Tim Sheard (Portland State University, USA): The Omega
