ICFP 2001 seeks original papers on the full spectrum of the art, science,
and practice of functional programming. The conference invites submissions
on all topics ranging from principles to practice, from foundations to
features, and from abstraction to application. The scope covers all
languages that encourage programming with functions, including both purely
applicative and imperative languages, as well as languages that support
objects and concurrency. Papers setting new directions in functional
programming, or describing novel or exemplary applications of functional
programming, are particularly encouraged. Topics of interest include, but
are not limited to, the following:

   * Foundations: formal semantics, lambda calculus, type theory, monads,
     continuations, control, state, effects.
   * Design: modules and type systems, concurrency and distribution,
     components and composition, relations to object-oriented and logic
     programming, multiparadigm programming.
   * Implementation: abstract machines, compile-time and run-time
     optimization, just-in-time compilers, memory management,
     foreign-function and component interfaces.
   * Transformation and Analysis: abstract interpretation, partial
     evaluation, program transformation, theorem proving, specification and
   * Applications: scientific and numerical computing, symbolic computing
     and artificial intelligence, systems programming, databases, graphic
     user interfaces, multimedia programming, web programming.
   * Experience: FP in education and industry, ramifications on other
     paradigms and computing disciplines.
   * Functional pearls: elegant, instructive examples of functional
