2008 Workshop on Scheme and Functional Programming

20 September 2008
Victoria, British Columbia

Call for Papers

The 2008 Workshop on Scheme and Functional Programming provides an opportunity to report experience with the programming languages known as Scheme, to discuss ideas for the future of Scheme, and to present research related to Scheme and functional programming. We encourage everyone interested in Scheme to participate.

This workshop is associated with and will be held two days before the opening of the 2008 International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP), which is sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN.

We invite authors to submit papers in either of two categories: technical papers and experience papers.

Authors of both technical and experience papers are invited to describe, in an appendix, proposals for demonstrating their work or ideas during the workshop.

We also invite proposals for panel discussions on topics of interest to the Scheme community. The author(s) of an accepted proposal for panel discussion will give a brief introduction to the topic before moderating the discussion that follows.

Submissions are due on Sunday, 29 June. (This extends the original date by nine days.) Authors will be notified of the program committee's decision by 14 July. The final versions of accepted papers will be due on 15 August.

Publication of a paper at this workshop is not intended to replace conference or journal publication, and does not preclude republication of a more complete or finished version of the paper at some later conference or in a journal.

Technical papers

Topics of interest for technical papers include (but are not limited to):

Experience papers

Topics of interest for experience papers include (but are not limited to):

Experience papers need not report original research results; they may instead report experience that will benefit others, such as elegant or realistic solutions to practical problems. The key criterion for such a paper is that it helps other practitioners. It is not enough simply to describe a program!
