Submissions are invited on all topics from principles to practice, from foundations to features, and from abstraction to application. The scope includes all languages that encourage functional programming, including both purely applicative and imperative languages, as well as languages with objects, concurrency, or parallelism. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): * Language Design: concurrency and distribution; modules; components and composition; metaprogramming; interoperability; type systems; relations to imperative, object-oriented, or logic programming * Implementation: abstract machines; virtual machines; interpretation; compilation; compile-time and run-time optimization; memory management; multi-threading; exploiting parallel hardware; interfaces to foreign functions, services, components, or low-level machine resources * Software-Development Techniques: algorithms and data structures; design patterns; specification; verification; validation; proof assistants; debugging; testing; tracing; profiling * Foundations: formal semantics; lambda calculus; rewriting; type theory; monads; continuations; control; state; effects; program verification; dependent types * Analysis and Transformation: control-flow; data-flow; abstract interpretation; partial evaluation; program calculation * Applications and Domain-Specific Languages: symbolic computing; formal-methods tools; artificial intelligence; systems programming; distributed-systems and web programming; hardware design; databases; XML processing; scientific and numerical computing; graphical user interfaces; multimedia programming; scripting; system administration; security * Education: teaching introductory programming; parallel programming; mathematical proof; algebra * Functional Pearls: elegant, instructive, and fun essays on functional programming * Experience Reports: short papers that provide evidence that functional programming really works or describe obstacles that have kept it from working If you are concerned about the appropriateness of some topic, do not hesitate to contact the program chair. Abbreviated instructions for authors ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ * By Thursday, 28 March 2013, 23:59 UTC-11 (American Samoa time), submit a full paper of at most 12 pages (6 pages for an Experience Report), including bibliography and figures. The deadlines will be strictly enforced and papers exceeding the page limits will be summarily rejected. * Authors have the option to attach supplementary material to a submission, on the understanding that reviewers may choose not to look at it. * Each submission must adhere to SIGPLAN's republication policy, as explained on the web at http://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Policies/Republication * Authors of resubmitted (but previously rejected) papers have the option to attach an annotated copy of the reviews of their previous submission(s), explaining how they have addressed these previous reviews in the present submission. If a reviewer identifies him/herself as a reviewer of this previous submission and wishes to see how his/her comments have been addressed, the program chair will communicate to this reviewer the annotated copy of his/her previous review. Otherwise, no reviewer will read the annotated copies of the previous reviews. Overall, a submission will be evaluated according to its relevance, correctness, significance, originality, and clarity. It should explain its contributions in both general and technical terms, clearly identifying what has been accomplished, explaining why it is significant, and comparing it with previous work. The technical content should be accessible to a broad audience. Functional Pearls and Experience Reports are separate categories of papers that need not report original research results and must be marked as such at the time of submission. Detailed guidelines on both categories are on the conference web site. Proceedings will be published by ACM Press. Authors of accepted submissions are expected to transfer the copyright to the ACM. Presentations will be videotaped and released online if the presenter consents. Formatting: Submissions must be in PDF format printable in black and white on US Letter sized paper and interpretable by Ghostscript. Papers must adhere to the standard ACM conference format: two columns, nine-point font on a ten-point baseline, with columns 20pc (3.33in) wide and 54pc (9in) tall, with a column gutter of 2pc (0.33in). A suitable document template for LaTeX is available: http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigplan/authorInformation.htm Submission: Submissions will be accepted on the web at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icfp2013 . Improved versions of a paper may be submitted at any point before the submission deadline using the same web interface. Author response: Authors will have a 72-hour period, starting at 0:00 UTC-11 on Wednesday, 22 May 2013, to read reviews and respond to them. Special Journal Issue: There will be a special issue of the Journal of Functional Programming with papers from ICFP 2013. The program committee will invite the authors of select accepted papers to submit a journal version to this issue.

Re: ICFP 2013: Second Call for Papers

Dear Moderator,

Find attached the Call for Papers of the 9th International Workshop on Automated Specification and Verification of Web Systems, that we think would be of interest for your mailing list subscribers (we have had submissions about functional languages in previous years).

Would you please post it as soon as ossible? Thank you in advance.

Yours sincerely,
-. Josep Silva .-

The Workshop on Automated Specification and Verification of Web Systems (WWV,
http://users.dsic.upv.es/grupos/elp/wwv/) is a yearly workshop that aims at
providing an interdisciplinary forum to facilitate the cross-fertilization 
and the advancement of hybrid methods that exploit concepts and tools drawn 
from Rule-based programming, Software engineering, Formal methods and 
Web-oriented research.

Nowadays, many companies and institutions have diverted their Web sites into
interactive, completely-automated, Web-based applications for, e.g., e-business,
e-learning, e-government and e-health. The increased complexity and the explosive
growth of Web systems has made their design and implementation a challenging task.
Systematic, formal approaches to their specification and verification can permit
to address the problems of this specific domain by means of automated and
effective techniques and tools.

Topics of either theoretical or applied interest include, but are not limited to:
- Rule-based approaches to Web system analysis, certification, specification,
  verification, and optimization.
- Languages and models for programming and designing Web systems.
- Formal methods for describing and reasoning about Web systems.
- Model-checking, synthesis and debugging of Web systems.
- Analysis and verification of linked data.
- Abstract interpretation and program transformation applied to the semantic Web.
- Intelligent tutoring and advisory systems for Web specifications authoring.
- Middleware and frameworks for composition and orchestration of Web services.
- Web quality and Web metrics.
- Web usability and accessibility.
- Testing and evaluation of Web systems and applications.


Participation to WWV is open. The workshop is intended for, but not limited to,
researchers from the communities of Rule-based programming, Software engineering,
Formal methods and Web-oriented research.


Submitted papers should present original unpublished work and cannot be under
review for publication elsewhere. Each paper will undergo a thorough evaluation 
by at least three reviewers, chosen by the Program Committee. 
Contributions should be submitted through the EasyChair online submission system
in PDF format, and should be prepared in LaTeX using the EPTCS-style format and
should not exceed 15 pages (typeset 11 points).
Submission is a firm commitment that at least one of the authors will attend the
workshop, if the paper is accepted.


Accepted papers will be included in the pre-proceedings, which will be made
available in electronic form through the WWV web site. 
After the workshop, authors of accepted papers will be asked to prepare, by
incorporating insights gathered during the event, a final version of their paper
to be published in the post-proceedings.

We plan to publish the workshop post-proceedings as a volume of the EPTCS series.

Applied Logic has been organized after WWV'10, and a special issue of the Journal
of Logic and Algebraic Programming is being organized after WWV'11 and WWV'12.
