2010 Conference Info
October 1st-2nd, 2010
Registration is now available here.
CUFP 2010 will be colocated with ICFP 2010, and will consist of three components: CUFP Talks, CUFP Tutorials and CUFP BOFs.
CUFP Talks will consist of a series of talks given by practitioners in the field. The talks will be split between shorter experience reports, describing ways in which functional programming has been used, either successfully or unsuccessfully, in the real world; and longer technical talks, which will detail techniques and approaches for applying functional programming in practical settings.
CUFP Tutorials 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 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 and a mailing list.
You can see the full talk and tutorial schedule here.
There will be no published proceedings, as the meeting is intended to be more a discussion forum than a technical interchange.
