Apologies for any duplicates you may receive.

EasyChair now open! [3]

Please find below the Third Call for Papers for the Second International Workshop on Trends in Functional Programming In Education (TFPIE). As an addendum to previous CfPs for this event, I would like you to consider the following: May FP researchers also teach FP or use an FP language to teach something else. Even though many of these teachers are very enthusiastic about what they do, they typically don't consider it something to write up. I believe that having a serious forum specifically for the education of or with FP will help promote the use of FP as a teaching tool and will benefit the field of computer science as a whole.

Previous CfPs for the event were sent out in PDF form. Many mailing-lists reject this. Therefore, below, is the plain textual form of the CfP. For more information, refer to the website [1]. For inspiration, see last year's proceedings (like this year, published in the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science) [2]. Submissions are welcome via EasyChair [3].

Please forward this CfP to whatever forum you consider appropriate.

Third Call for Papers the Second International Workshop on Trends in Functional Programming in Education


The second International Workshop on Trends in Functional Programming in Education, TFPIE 2013, is co-located with Trends in Functional Programming (TFP 2013) at Brigham Young University in Utah. The goal of TFPIE is to gather researchers, teachers and all professionals that use, or are interested in the use of, functional programming in education. TFPIE aims to be a venue were novel ideas, classroom-tested ideas and work-in-progress on the use of functional programming in education are discussed. The one-day workshop will foster a spirit of open discussion by having a review process for publication after the workshop.

The program chair of TFPIE 2013 will screen submissions to ensure that all presentations are within scope and are of interest to participants. Potential presenters are invited to submit an extended abstract (4-6 pages) or an article (up to 16 pages) in EPTCS style. The authors of all accepted presentations will have their preprints and their slides made available on the workshop's website/wiki. Any visitors to the TFPIE 2013 website/wiki will be able to add comments. This includes presenters who may respond to comments and questions as well as provide pointers to improvements and follow-up work. After the workshop, the presenters will be invited to submit (a revised version of) their article for review. The PC will select the best articles for publication in the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science journal (EPTCS). Articles rejected for presentation and all extended abstracts will not be formally reviewed by the PC.

TFPIE 2013 welcomes submissions describing practical techniques used in the classroom, tools used in and/or developed for the classroom and any creative use of functional programming (FP) to aid education in or outside Computer Science. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Teaching FP to highschool, beginning CS, and graduate students
- FP as a teaching tool for other (CS) topics
- FP and Robotics, Music and Philosophy
- Advanced FP for undergraduates
- Engaging students in research using FP
- FP in Programming Languages
- FP as a stepping stone to other CS topics

Important dates & Submission

Submission for presentation: Apr 20
Notification of acceptance: Apr 25
Submission formal paper: Jun 9
Notification of acceptance: Aug 16
Camera-ready version: Sep 8

Submission (pre-conference) through EasyChair: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=tfpie2013

Submission and review for publication occur after the meeting in Utah. This allows authors to revise their articles, to include comments received at the meeting. After submission, we aim to provide four reviews per paper.


You can direct any questions you might have to the program chair, through tfpie2013 at easychair.org. Discussion, both of the workshop itself and of the work presented there, is hosted on the TFPIE-wiki.


Brigham Young University (BYU) is the third-largest private university and the largest explicitly religious university in the United States of America. Although BYU is owned and operated by the LDS church, the workshop is independent of this affiliation. By BYU's own pen:

"Brigham Young University seeks to develop students of faith, intellect and character who have the skills and the desire to continue learning and to serve others throughout their lives. Established in 1875, the university provides an outstanding education in an atmosphere consistent with the ideals and principles of its sponsor, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Known for its academically minded and internationally experienced student body, its world-class teaching and its beautiful mountain location, BYU is also recognized for its extensive language programs, talented performing arts ensembles, outstanding sports programs and devotion to combining solid scholarship with the principles of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ."

It should be noted that BYU's "Honor Code" applies only to students & staff. It does *not* apply to visitors.
