Seventeenth ACM SIGPLAN
St. Louis, Missouri, United States, September 29, 2018
Satellite event of
the 23nd ACM SIGPLAN
International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP 2018),
September 23 - 29, 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.
Technical papers describing interesting contributions either in theoretical work or real world applications. Submission related to Erlang, Elixir, Akka, CloudHaskell, Lisp Flavored Erlang, OCaml, and functional programming are welcome and encouraged. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
The maximum length for technical papers is restricted to 12 pages.
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.
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: the Workshop and Program Chairs are also committee members)
Papers must be submitted online via EasyChair (via the "Erlang2018" event). The submission page is https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=erlang18.
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.
Paper submissions will be considered for poster submission in the case they are not accepted as full papers.
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.
