IFL 2015 - Call for papers


University of Koblenz-Landau, Koblenz, Germany

In cooperation with ACM SIGPLAN

September 14-16, 2015



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 2015 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 2015 will use a post-symposium review process to produce the formal proceedings. All participants of IFL2015 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; submissions must adhere to ACM SIGPLAN's republication policy:


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 Submissions appearing in the draft proceedings are not peer-reviewed publications. Hence, publications that appear only in the draft proceedings do not count as publication for the ACM SIGPLAN republication policy. 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. From the revised submissions, the program committee will select papers for the formal proceedings considering their correctness, novelty, originality, relevance, significance, and clarity.

Submission details

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. Papers must adhere to the standard ACM two columns conference format. For the pre-symposium proceedings we adopt a 'weak' page limit of 12 pages. For the post-symposium proceedings the page limit of 12 pages is firm. A suitable document template for LaTeX can be found at:


Authors submit through EasyChair:

The 27th IFL will be held in association with the Faculty of Computer Science, University of Koblenz-Landau, Campus Koblenz. Koblenz is well connected by train to several international airports. For instance, Koblenz can be reached from Frankfurt by high-speed train ICE within an hour. The modern Koblenz campus is close to the city center and can be reached by foot, bus, or cab. See the website for more information on the venue.
