Fifteenth ACM SIGPLAN Erlang Workshop

Nara, Japan, September 23, 2016
Satellite event of the 21st ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on 
Functional Programming (ICFP 2016)
September 18-24, 2016

The Erlang Workshop aims to bring together the open source, academic,
and industrial communities of Erlang, to discuss technologies and
languages related to Erlang. The Erlang model of concurrent programming
has been widely emulated, for example by Akka in Scala, and even new
programming languages were designed atop of the Erlang VM, such as
Elixir. Therefore we would like to broaden the scope of the workshop to
include systems like those mentioned above.

The workshop will enable participants to familiarize themselves with
recent developments on new techniques and tools, novel applications,
draw lessons from users' experiences and identify research problems and
common areas relevant to the practice of Erlang, Erlang-like languages,
functional programming, distribution, concurrency etc.

We invite three types of submissions.

1. Technical papers describing interesting contributions either in
theoretical work or real world applications. Submission related to
Erlang, Elixir, Akka, CloudHaskell, Occam, and functional programming
are welcome and encouraged. Topics of interest include (but are not
limited to):

   - virtual machine extensions and compilation techniques
   - implementations and interfaces of Erlang in/with other languages
   - new tools (profilers, tracers, debuggers, testing frameworks etc.)
   - language extensions
   - formal semantics, correctness and verification
   - testing Erlang programs
   - program analysis and transformation
   - Erlang-like languages and technologies
   - functional languages and multi-processing
   - concurrency in functional languages
   - functional languages and distributed computing
   - parallel programming
   - pattern based programming
   - Erlang in education

The maximum length for technical papers is restricted to 12 pages.

2. Experience reports 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 experience report is restricted
to 2 pages.

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.
