   Hello all,

   Please find below the First Call for Papers for the Thirteenth ACM
SIGPLAN Erlang Workshop.

   Apologies for any duplicates you may receive.


Thirteenth ACM SIGPLAN Erlang Workshop

Göteborg, Sweden, September 5, 2014
Satellite event of the 19th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on
Functional Programming (ICFP 2014)
September 1-3, 2014


Erlang is a concurrent, distributed functional programming language
aimed at systems with requirements of massive concurrency, soft real
time response, fault tolerance, and high availability. It has been
available as open source for 15 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, databases,
and computer telephony and messaging.

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

We invite three types of submissions.

1. Technical papers describing language extensions, critical
discussions of the status quo, formal semantics of language
constructs, program analysis and transformation, virtual machine
extensions and compilation techniques, implementations and interfaces
of Erlang in/with other languages, and new tools (profilers, tracers,
debuggers, testing frameworks, etc.). The maximum length for technical
papers is restricted to 12 pages.

2. Practice and application papers describing uses of Erlang in the
"real-world", Erlang libraries for specific tasks, experiences from
using Erlang in specific application domains, reusable programming
idioms and elegant new ways of using Erlang to approach or solve a
particular problem. The maximum length for the practice and
application papers is restricted to 12 pages. Note that this is a
maximum length; we welcome shorter papers also, and the program
committee will evaluate all papers on an equal basis independent of
their lengths.

3. Poster presentations describing topics related to the workshop
goals. Each includes a maximum of 2 pages of the abstract and summary.
Presentations in this category will be given an hour of shared
simultaneous demonstration time.
