8th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP 2003)

Uppsala, Sweden: 25-29 August 2003


Welcome to the ICFP 2003 home page! Here you will find the latest information about the 8th International Conference in Functional Programming. There is also a more permanent home page for the ICFP conference series.

ICFP 2003 provides a forum for researchers and developers to hear about the latest work on the design, implementations, principles, and uses of functional programming. The conference covers all aspects of functional programming, from practice to theory, and from established functional programming languages (such as Haskell, ML, and Scheme) to novel language designs and the functional aspects of other programming paradigms.

ICFP 2003 is one of two main conferences, with associated workshops, that are part of PLI 2003: a colloquium on Principles, Logics, and Implementations of High-Level Programming Languages.

Registration, Travel and Accommodation

To register for the conference, visit RSL's registration page for PLI 2003. For travel advice and information about accommodation, follow the appropriate links from the PLI 2003 home page.

Programming Contest

The annual pre-conference programming contest has now taken place. For further information see the contest web page. Results of the contest will be announced at the conference (see the conference schedule) with the award of traditional accolades and prizes.

Conference Papers

In response to the call for papers around a hundred papers were submitted to ICFP 2003 on many and various aspects of functional programming. Here is the programme of invited and accepted papers to be presented at the conference.

Associated Workshops

Following a good response to the call for workshop proposals several more specialised meetings have been organised as part of PLI 2003. Those most likely to be of interest to ICFP 2003 participants are:

Student Attendees

Students who have a paper accepted for the conference are offered student membership of SIGPLAN free for one year. As members of SIGPLAN they may apply for travel fellowships from the PAC fund.

Organizing Team

The ICFP conference series is organized by ACM SIGPLAN and the ICFP Steering Committee.

Those specifically responsible for the 2003 conference include:
