[TFP2013] CFP Deadline Extension

FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS (DEADLINE EXTENSION) 14th International Symposium Trends in Functional Programming 2013 Brigham Young University, Utah, U.S.A. May 14-16, 2013 http://faculty.cs.byu.edu/~jay/conferences/2013-tfp/ [The deadline has been extended two weeks from April 2nd to April 16th.] The symposium on Trends in Functional Programming (TFP) is an international forum for researchers with interests in all aspects of functional programming, taking a broad view of current and future trends in the area. It aspires to be a lively environment for presenting the latest research results, and other contributions (see below), described in draft papers submitted prior to the symposium. A formal post-symposium refereeing process then selects a subset of the articles presented at the symposium and submitted for formal publication. Selected papers will be published as a Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS: http://www.springer.com/lncs) volume. TFP 2013 will be the main event of a pair of functional programming events at Brigham Young University. First will be the International Workshop on Trends in Functional Programming in Education and then TFP. The TFP symposium is the heir of the successful series of Scottish Functional Programming Workshops. Previous TFP symposia were held in Edinburgh (Scotland) in 2003, in Munich (Germany) in 2004, in Tallinn (Estonia) in 2005, in Nottingham (UK) in 2006, in New York (USA) in 2007, in Nijmegen (The Netherlands) in 2008, in Komarno (Slovakia) in 2009, in Oklahoma (USA) in 2010, in Madrid (Spain) in 2011, and in St. Andrews (UK) in 2012. For further general information about TFP please see the TFP homepage at http://www.tifp.org/. SCOPE OF THE SYMPOSIUM The symposium recognises that new trends may arise through various routes. As part of the symposium's focus on trends we therefore identify the following five article categories. High-quality articles are solicited in any of these categories: Research Articles: leading-edge, previously unpublished research work Position Articles: on what new trends should or should not be Project Articles: descriptions of recently started new projects Evaluation Articles: what lessons can be drawn from a finished project Overview Articles: summarising work with respect to a trendy subject Articles must be original and not submitted for simultaneous publication to any other forum. They may consider any aspect of functional programming: theoretical, implementation-oriented, or more experience oriented. Applications of functional programming techniques to other languages are also within the scope of the symposium. Articles on the following subject areas are particularly welcome: . Functional programming and multicore/manycore computing . Functional programming in the cloud . Functional programming in education . High performance functional computing . Extra-functional (behavioural) properties of functional programs . Dependently typed functional programming . Validation and verification of functional programs . Using functional techniques to verify/reason about imperative/object-oriented programs . Debugging for functional languages . Functional programming in different application areas: security, mobility, telecommunications applications, embedded systems, global computing, grids, etc. . Interoperability with imperative programming languages . Novel memory management techniques . Program transformation techniques . Empirical performance studies . Abstract/virtual machines and compilers for functional languages . New implementation strategies . Any new emerging trend in the functional programming area If you are in doubt on whether your article is within the scope of TFP, please contact the TFP 2013 program chair, Jay McCarthy, at tfp2013 at easychair.org BEST STUDENT PAPER AWARD TFP traditionally pays special attention to research students, acknowledging that students are almost by definition part of new subject trends. A student paper is one for which the authors state that the paper is mainly the work of students, the students are listed as first authors, and a student would present the paper. A prize for the best student paper is awarded each year. SUBMISSION AND DRAFT PROCEEDINGS Acceptance of papers for presentation at the symposium is based on a lightweight screening process of extended abstracts (2 to 10 pages in length) or full papers (max 16 pages). Accepted abstracts are to be completed to full papers before the symposium for publication in the draft proceedings. Latex style files are available from Springer's web page (llncs2e.zip), and are linked below. The submission must clearly indicate which category it belongs to: research, position, project, evaluation, or overview paper. It should also indicate whether the main author or authors are research students. Formatting details can be found at the TFP 2013 website. Paper submission is done through TFP13's EasyChair page: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=tfp2013 Important dates (2013): Full papers/extended abstracts submission: March 2nd to April 16th, 2013 (extended) Notification of acceptance for presentation: Submission + one week Early registration deadline: Tuesday, April 16th, 2013 Late registration deadline: Tuesday, May 14th, 2013 Camera ready for draft proceeding: Tuesday, May 7th, 2013 (extended) The papers of the local proceedings will also be made available on-line under some copyright conditions, with which all authors are asked to agree. POST-SYMPOSIUM REFEREEING AND PUBLICATION In addition to the symposium draft proceedings, we will continue the previous years' decision of publishing a high-quality subset of contributions in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Proceedings of the last three instances of TFP have been published as LNCS 6546 (TFP10), LNCS 7193 (TFP11), and LNCS TBA (TFP12). All TFP authors will be invited to submit revised papers after the symposium. These will be refereed using normal conference standards and a subset of the submitted papers, over all categories, will be selected for publication. Papers will be judged on their contribution to the research area with appropriate criteria applied to each category of paper. Student papers will be given extra feedback by the Program Committee in order to assist those unfamiliar with the publication process and to help in improving the quality of the paper. Important dates (2013): TFP 2013 Symposium: Tuesday, May 14th, 2013 -- Thursday May 16, 2013 Student papers feedback: Friday, May 24th, 2013 Submission for formal review: Friday, June 21st, 2013 Notification of acceptance for LNCS: Friday, August 30th, 2013 Camera ready paper: Friday, September 27th, 2013 REGISTRATION Registration for TFP13, as well as the adjoined workshops, is handled through the on-line registration page below.
