If you are using Racket or any mostly functional language in any kind of
musical, artistic, or design endeavour, please consider contributing to
FARM 2014, the 2nd ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop of Functional Art,
Music, Modelling and Design, co-located with ICFP 2014.

Find attached the Call for Papers and Demo Proposals.



			 FARM 2014

	 2nd ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on
	Functional Art, Music, Modelling and Design

	   Gothenburg, Sweden; 6 September, 2014

The functional programming community is largely interested
in writing beautiful programs. The ACM SIGPLAN International
Workshop on Functional Art, Music, Modelling and Design
(FARM) is intended to gather researchers and practitioners
interested in writing beautiful programs which generate
beautiful artifacts or experiences, or perhaps even
challenge notions of beauty. FARM encourages submissions
from across art, craft and design, including textiles,
visual art, music, 3D sculpture, animation, GUIs, video
games, physical models, architectural models, choreographies
for dance, poetry, and even VLSI layouts, GPU
configurations, or mechanical engineering designs. The
language used need not be purely functional ("mostly
functional" is fine); may be based on abstractions such as
higher-order functions, monads, arrows, or streams; and may
be manifested as a domain specific language or tool.
Theoretical foundations, language design, implementation
issues, and applications in industry or the arts are all
within the scope of the workshop.

Submissions are invited in two categories:

  * Full papers

    5 to 12 pages using the ACM SIGPLAN template. FARM 2014
    is an interdisciplinary conference, so a wide range of
    approaches are encouraged and we recognize that the
    appropriate length of a paper may vary considerably
    depending on the approach. However, all submissions must
    propose an original contribution to the FARM theme, cite
    relevant previous work, and apply appropriate research

  * Demo abstracts

    Demo abstracts should describe the demonstration and its
    context, connecting it with the themes of FARM. A demo
    could be in the form of a short (10-20 minute) tutorial,
    presentation of work-in-progress, an exhibition of some
    work, or even a performance. Abstracts should be no
    longer than 2 pages, using the ACM SIGPLAN template and
    will be subject to a light-touch peer review.

If you have any questions about what type of contributions
that might be suitable, or anything else regarding
submission or the workshop itself, please contact the
organisers at:

    workshop2014 at functional-art.org


    Abstract (for Full Papers) submission deadline:	7 May
    Full Paper and Demo Abstract submission Deadline:	11 May
    Author Notification:				30 May
    Camera Ready:					18 June
    Workshop:						6 September

Accepted papers will be included in the formal proceedings
published by ACM Press and will also be made available
through the the ACM Digital Library; see
