  Sixth ACM SIGPLAN Erlang Workshop
  Freiburg, Germany, October 5, 2007


  Satellite event of ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on
  Functional Programming,  October 1-3, 2007

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

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 
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 
themselves with recent developments on new techniques and tools tailored to
Erlang, novel applications, draw lessons from users' experiences and 
research problems and common areas relevant to the practice of Erlang and
functional programming.

The workshop will have printed proceedings which will be distributed to 
the participants at the time of the workshop. Subsequently, the papers 
will be included in the ACM Digital Library.
Authors are therefore advised to use the ACM SIGPLAN style file for 
conference proceedings when preparing their submissions.
Authors should submit extended abstracts or provisional full papers in 
PDF, formatted for A4 paper, to Lars-Åke Fredlund 
fred@REDACTED The length should be restricted to 12 pages in 
standard ACM format.

In previous workshops we have had a mix of papers representing academic 
research and industrial experiences with Erlang. We particularly welcome 
papers describing new and novel application of Erlang - if you have any 
doubts about the suitability of a paper please feel free to contact the 
Programme Chair for advice.
