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 very large scale and suggest new problems for the research community to solve.
