ICFP '04 Call for Workshop Proposals

This document is also available in text, PDF, and Microsoft Word formats.

The ICFP 2004 ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming will be held in Snowbird, Utah, USA from Sunday, September 19 -- Wednesday, September 22, 2004.

Proposals for workshops are invited for consideration of ACM SIGPLAN sponsorship and affiliation with ICFP 2004. Affiliated workshops will be held on Wednesday, September 22. The purpose of these workshops is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in a less formal and possibly more focused way than the conferences themselves. As such, they also offer a good opportunity for young researchers to present their work and to obtain feedback from an interested community. The format of each workshop is to be determined by the organizers, but it is expected that they contain ample time for general discussion. The preference is for one-day workshops, but other schedules will also be considered.

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit workshop proposals to the ICFP 2004 Workshop Chair, Franklyn Turbak (fturbak@wellesley.edu), no later than Wednesday, February 4, 2004. Submission may be made by e-mail (Postscript, PDF, or ASCII) with "ICFP04 Workshop Submission" in the subject header. Following ACM SIGPLAN's sponsorship procedures, proposals must include:

  1. The name of the workshop.
  2. A statement of goals for the workshop.
  3. The names and addresses of the organizers.
  4. The names of potential participants, such as program committee members.
  5. A description of the plans for call for participation (e.g., call for papers).
  6. The expected number of attendees and the planned length of the workshop.
  7. A description of the plans for publicity.
  8. An explanation of any plans for a proceedings.
  9. A description of past versions of the workshop, including dates, organizers, submission and acceptance counts, attendance, sites, registration fees and summary budget information.
  10. The URL of the workshop web site.

Accepted workshops will be sponsored by SIGPLAN (see http://www.acm.org/sigplan/sigplan_workshop_proposal.htm for more information). A committee chaired by the ICFP 2004 Workshop Chair and consisting of the ICFP Program and Conference Chairs and the SIGPLAN Executive Committee will evaluate all proposals.
