ACM Erlang Workshop 2020 will be 100% Virtual
Satellite event of the 25th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on
Functional Programming (ICFP 2020)
Sun 23 - Fri 28 August 2020
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 two 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, but short papers
(max. 6 pages) are welcomed as well.
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, but short papers
(max. 6 pages) are welcomed as well.

## Instructions to authors
Papers must be submitted online via HotCRP (via the "Erlang2020"
event). The submission page is
Submitted papers should be in portable document format (PDF),
formatted using the ACM SIGPLAN style guidelines.
Each submission must adhere to SIGPLAN's republication policy.
Violation risks summary rejection of the offending submission.
Accepted papers will be published by the ACM and will appear in the
ACM Digital Library.
The proceedings will be freely available for download from the ACM Digital
Library from one week before the start of the conference until two weeks
after the conference.
Paper submissions will be considered for poster submission in the case
they are not accepted as full papers.
## Covid-19 update
The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our top priority.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic Erlang Workshop and ICFP will be held
virtually this year. Although we will not be able to meet in person,
we are committed to make this an interactive conference.
