Hello,

Just a friendly reminder that the submission deadline (June 2)
for the CUFP workshop is approaching.

http://cufp.functionalprogramming.com

Those of you who ponder whether or not to attend, may also consider
the Erlang workshop (of course):

http://www.erlang.org/workshop/2008/

and the Developer Tracks on Functional Programming:

http://www.deinprogramm.de/defun-2008/

DEFUN is particularly interested in good tutorials.

BR,
Ulf W

>  Functional languages have been under academic development for over
> 25
>  years, and remain fertile ground for programming language research.
>  Recently, however, developers in industrial, governmental, and open
>  source projects have begun to use functional programming
> successfully
>  in practical applications. In these settings, functional
> programming
>  has often provided dramatic leverage, including whole new ways of
>  thinking about the original problem.
>
>  The goal of the CUFP workshop is to act as a voice for these users
> of
>  functional programming. The workshop supports the increasing
> viability
>  of functional programming in the commercial, governmental, and
>  open-source space by providing a forum for professionals to share
>  their experiences and ideas, whether those ideas are related to
>  business, management, or engineering. The workshop is also designed
> to
>  enable the formation and reinforcement of relationships that
> further
>  the commercial use of functional programming. Providing user
> feedback
>  to language designers and implementors is not a primary goal of the
>  workshop, though it will be welcome if it occurs.

> Speaking at CUFP
>
>  If you use functional programming as a means, rather than as an
> end,
>  we invite you to offer to give a talk at the workshop.
> Alternatively,
>  if you know someone who would give a good talk, please nominate
> them!
>
>  Talks are typically 30-45 minutes long, but can be shorter. They
> aim
>  to inform participants about how functional programming played out
> in
>  real-world applications, focusing especially on the re-usable
> lessons
>  learned, or insights gained. Your talk does not need to be highly
>  technical; for this audience, reflections on the commercial,
>  management, or software engineering aspects are, if anything, more
>  important. You do not need to submit a paper!
>
>  If you are interested in offering a talk, or nominating someone to
> do
>  so, send an e-mail to jim (dot) d (dot) grundy (at) intel (dot) com
> or
>  simonpj (at) microsoft (dot) com by 2 June 2008 with a short
>  description of what you'd like to talk about or what you think your
>  nominee should give a talk about. Such descriptions should be about
>  one page long.

> Program Plans
>
>  CUFP 2008 will last a full day and feature an invited presentation
>  from Michael Hopcroft, the product unit manager for the forthcoming
>  release of Microsoft Visual Studio F#. Additionally, the program
>  will include a mix of presentations and discussion sessions. Topics
>  will range over a wide area, including:
>    * Case studies of successful and unsuccessful uses of functional
>      programming;
>    * Business opportunities and risks from using functional
> languages;
>    * Enablers for functional language use in a commercial setting;
>    * Barriers to the adoption of functional languages, and
>    * Mitigation strategies for overcoming limitations of functional
>      programming.
>
>  There will be no published proceedings, as the meeting is intended
> to
>  be more a discussion forum than a technical interchange.
