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

Call for workshop and co-located event proposals

ICFP provides a forum for researchers and developers to hear about the latest work on the design, implementations, principles, and uses of functional programming.

Proposals are invited for workshops (and other co-located events, such as tutorials) to be affiliated with ICFP 2017 and sponsored by SIGPLAN. These events should be less formal and more focused than ICFP itself, include sessions that enable interaction among the attendees, and foster the exchange of new ideas. The preference is for one-day events, but other schedules can also be considered.

The workshops are scheduled to occur on September 3 (the day before ICFP) and September 7-9 (the three days after ICFP).
