Deadline Extension for DDFP 2013 (co-located with POPL 2013)

Data-Driven Functional Programming Workshop 2013

Co-Located with POPL 2013
January 22, 2013 | Rome, Italy
NEW: Submission Date: October 15, 2012

We are very pleased to announce DDFP 2013, an exciting new workshop at
POPL. This workshop is for anyone who loves the application of
functional programming (and indeed other programming paradigms as
well) to data-rich domains. Please consider submitting to the
workshop. Whatever your flavor of data, whatever your flavor of
functional programming. We want this to be a great event that opens up
opportunities at the intersection of data and programming.

Functional programming techniques are becoming increasingly important
in data-centric programming: languages like Haskell, Scala, and C#
draw heavily on a range of functional techniques and find application
in numerous data-driven domains; functional paradigms like map/reduce
and its extensions lie at the core of modern scalable data processing;
and “information-rich” languages like Ur, F#, and Gosu use
meta-programming to integrate type-safe queries, web-based APIs, and
scalable data sources—along with associated semantically-rich
metadata—into the programming language. In principle, the
expressiveness, strong typing, and core functional paradigm of these
languages make them an ideal choice for expressing robust and scalable
data-centric programming. However, many challenges remain.
