Seventeenth ACM SIGPLAN Erlang Workshop



St. Louis, Missouri, United States, 29 September 2018

Satellite event of the 23rd ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on

Functional Programming (ICFP 2018)

23 - 29 September, 2018

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 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.). Submission related to Erlang,

Elixir, Scala/Akka, CloudHaskell, Lisp Flavoured Erlang, OCaml, and

functional programming are welcome and encouraged. 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.

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.

Note that the above are maximum lengths; we welcome shorter papers also,

and the program committee will evaluate all papers on an equal basis

independent of their lengths.
