[racket] Commercial Users of Functional Programming (Sep 22-24, Boston): Call for Participation

From: Michael Sperber (sperber at deinprogramm.de)
Date: Fri Aug 9 11:48:50 EDT 2013

Functional programming has been at the forefront of a new generation
of programming technologies: Companies employing functional
programming use it to enable more effective, robust, and flexible
software development.

The annual CUFP workshop is designed to serve the growing community of
commercial users of functional programming: Practitioners meet and
collaborate; language designers and users can share ideas about the
future of their languages; experts share their expertise on practical
functional programming.

CUFP 2013 begins with a day of talks about industrial applications of
functional programming, followed by two days of tutorials by top-notch
language experts including advanced tutorials on special topics.

More information about CUFP 2013 is available on the CUFP web site at


Registration is available at:
