Eighth ACM SIGPLAN Erlang Workshop


Edinburgh, Scotland, September 3, 2009


Satellite event of the 14th ACM SIGPLAN International
Conference on Functional Programming, August 31 - September 2 , 2009

Erlang is a concurrent, distributed functional programming language 
aimed at systems with requirements on massive concurrency, soft real 
time response, fault tolerance, and high availability. It has been 
available as open source for several years creating a community that 
actively contributes to its already existing rich set of libraries and 
applications. Originally created for telecom applications, its usage has 
spread to other domains including e-commerce, banking, and computer 

Erlang programs are today among the largest applications written in any 
functional programming language. These applications offer new 
opportunities to evaluate functional programming and functional 
programming methods on a very large scale and suggest new problems for 
the research community to solve.

This workshop will bring together the open source, academic, and 
industrial programming communities of Erlang. It will enable 
participants to familiarize themselves with recent developments on new 
techniques and tools tailored to Erlang, novel applications, draw 
lessons from users' experiences and identify research problems and 
common areas relevant to the practice of Erlang and functional programming.
