Commercial Users of Functional Programming (CUFP) is an annual meeting co-located with the International Conference on Functional Programming which this year will take place in Gothenburg, Sweden on 4-6 September 2014. CUFP aims to bridge the gap between academia and users applying functional programming in practice. CUFP provides high-quality practical tutorials covering state-of-the-art techniques and tools for functional programming. There will be a mix of tutorials on introduction and advanced level, such that anyone that wants to learn something new has an opportunity to do so.
We are seeking proposals for half-day tutorials to be presented during the first two days of the meeting, 4 and 5 September. Submission deadline is May 30th, but the earlier you submit, the better!
Among the suggested topics for tutorials are:
Introductions to functional programming languages. In the past we have had introductions to Clojure, Erlang, F#, Haskell, ML, OCaml, Scala, Scheme and others.
Applying functional programming in particular areas, including the web, high-performance computing, finance.
Tools and techniques supporting state of the art functional programming.
Tutorial proposals should address the following points:
Abstract (about 100 words)
Tutorial Objectives: by the end of this tutorial you will be able to …
Intended audience: e.g. beginners, those with a working knowledge of X, …
Speaker Bio: Joe Bloggs is ...
Infrastructure required: For example, will participants need access to a particular system? Do they need to download anything prior to the tutorial? Can they be expected to have this on a laptop, or does it need to be provided by the meeting?
Other minor information which will help us market your tutorial.
and should be submitted using the following talk submission form.
