Copenhagen, Denmark
September 9-15, 2012

The 17th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP 2012) will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark on September 9-15, 2012. 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 2012 and sponsored by SIGPLAN. These events should be more informal and 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 9 (the day before ICFP) and September 13-15 (the three days after ICFP).

(For proposals of co-located events other than workshops, please fill in the workshop proposal form and just leave blank any sections that do not apply.) Please note that this is a firm deadline.

Organizers will be notified if their event proposal is accepted by December 17, 2011, and if successful, depending on the event, they will be asked to produce a final report after the event has taken place that is suitable for publication in SIGPLAN Notices. Further information about SIGPLAN sponsorship is available here.
