2014 Conference Info

September 4th-6th, 2014


CUFP 2014 will be co-located with ICFP 2014, and will consist of three components: CUFP Talks, CUFP Tutorials and CUFP BOFs.

CUFP Tutorials (Thu-Fri September 4-5th) will be made up of in-depth, hands-on sessions for learning particular technologies and techniques in functional programming. These will range from language introductions for beginners to more advanced and focused sessions on particular language features, techniques or tool kits.

CUFP Talks (Sat September 6th) will consist of a series of talks given by practitioners in the field. The talks will be split between experience reports, describing ways in which functional programming has been used, either successfully or unsuccessfully, in the real world; and technical talks, which will detail techniques and approaches for applying functional programming in practical settings.

CUFP BOFs will consist of so-called "birds-of-a-feather" sessions, which will create spaces for informal conversations on a variety of topics. Among other things, this will be a good venue for language designers and practitioners to exchange ideas about the future of functional programming. As is typical with BOFs, topics will be chosen beforehand based on a public process for gathering proposals, organized via our website.
