A node to say that the deadline for the CUFP talk submission is 
approaching. The goal of the CUFP workshop is to act as a voice for 
these users of functional languages. The workshop supports the 
increasing viability of functional programming in the commercial, 
governmental, and open-source space by providing a forum for FP 
professionals to share their experiences and ideas, whether those ideas 
are related to business, management, or engineering. The workshop is 
also designed to enable the formation and reinforcement of relationships 
that further the commercial use of functional languages. Providing user 
feedback to language designers and implementors is not a primary goal of 
the workshop, though it will be welcome if it occurs.

Talks are typically about 30-45 minutes long, but can be shorter. They 
aim to inform participants about how functional programming played out 
in real-world applications, focusing especially on the re-usable lessons 
learned, or insights gained. Your talk does not need to be highly 
technical; for this audience, reflections on the commercial, management, 
or software engineering aspects are, if anything, more important. You do 
not need to submit a paper!

If you are interested in offering a talk, or nominating someone to do 
so, send an e-mail to /kfisher at research.att.com/ or /simonpj at 
microsoft.com/ by *June 1, 2007* with a short description of what you'd 
like to talk about or what you think your nominee should give a talk 
about. Such descriptions should be roughly a page in length.
