ICFP 2017
Sun 3 - Sat 9 September 2017 Oxford, United Kingdom

We proudly announce the SIGPLAN Programming Languages Mentoring Workshop at ICFP. The purpose of this mentoring workshop is to encourage senior undergraduate and beginning graduate students to pursue careers in programming language research. We are specifically interested in attracting groups who have traditionally not had the opportunity to participate in research in functional programming. This workshop will be a combination of learning about the work being done in several areas of programming language research and mentoring with respect to helping students prepare for graduate school and the rest of their career. We will bring together leaders in programming language research from academia and industry to give talks on the kind of research typically performed after obtaining a Ph.D. The workshop will engage students, specifically interested in programming language research, in a process of imagining how they might contribute to the world.

This workshop is part of the activities surrounding the ICFP conference and takes place the day before the main conference. One goal of the workshop is to make the ICFP conference more accessible to newcomers. We hope that participants will stay through the entire conference.

Workshop Focus

Our effort is inspired by and modeled on the highly successful mentoring workshops associated with many recent conferences, including past ICFPs, POPL, and LICS. Our focus for this workshop will be undergraduates and early career (first or second year) graduate students, and undergraduates who are seriously considering a research career.

Travel Scholarship Applications (Due 31 July)

Please fill out this form by 31 July to apply for travel funding.

These scholarships will provide funds towards airfare, hotel, and registration fees for attendance at both the workshop and ICFP, but are limited. We welcome students with alternative sources of travel funding to attend PLMW as well.

Selected participants will be notified by 2 August and will need to pre-register and commit to attending the workshop by August 4. Applicants who apply after July 31 may be eligible to receive funding, if funds remain.

Please email the organizers if you have any questions.
