22nd Symposium on Implementation and Application of Functional Languages (IFL 2010)
September 1-3, 2010
Utrecht University
Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands

After a first successful visit to the USA, the Symposium on Implementation and Application of Functional
Languages returns to Europe for its 22nd edition. The hosting institution is Utrecht University in the 
Netherlands, although the conference itself will take place in the ornithological theme park Avifauna 
in Alphen aan den Rijn, situated conveniently close to Schiphol (Amsterdam Airport). The symposium dates 
are September 1-3, 2010. 

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 2010 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 2010 will use a post-symposium review process to produce formal proceedings 
which will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. All participants in 
IFL 2010 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. Here
we follow the ACM Sigplan republication policy as defined on http://www.sigplan.org/republicationpolicy.htm.
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proceedings are not peer-reviewed publications. 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. These revised submissions will be reviewed by the program committee 
using prevailing academic standards to select the best articles, which will appear in the formal proceedings.


Johan Nordlander of Lulea University, the designer and developer of the Timber language, is the invited 
speaker at IFL 2010. Timber is a functional programming language that draws some of its concepts from 
object-oriented programming, and has built-in facilities for concurrent execution. The language is 
specifically targeted at implementing real-time embedded systems.


IFL welcomes submissions describing practical and theoretical work as well as submissions describing 
applications and tools. If you are not sure that your work is appropriate for IFL 2010, please contact 
the PC chair at jur at cs.uu.nl. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

language concepts 
type checking 
compilation techniques 
staged compilation 
runtime function specialization 
runtime code generation 
partial evaluation 
(abstract) interpretation 
generic programming techniques 
automatic program generation 
array processing 
concurrent/parallel programming 
concurrent/parallel program execution 
functional programming and embedded systems 
functional programming and web applications 
functional programming and security 
novel memory management techniques 
runtime profiling and performance measurements 
debugging and tracing 
virtual/abstract machine architectures 
validation and verification of functional programs 
tools and programming techniques 
industrial 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, conform to the Springer-Verlag 
LNCS series format and not exceed 16 pages. The draft proceedings will appear as a technical report of the 
Department of Computer Science of Utrecht University.


IFL 2010 is sponsored by Microsoft Research. As a result we can offer decreased participation fees for Master students 
and PhD students who plan to attend or present at IFL 2010. 


The Peter Landin Prize is awarded to the best paper presented at the symposium every year. 
The honored 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.
