Haskell in Leipzig 2017 seeking contributions

Haskell in Leipzig (HaL) is taking place again from October 26 to October 28, 2017 at HTWK Leipzig. If you have any interesting Haskell-related material to share, please consider submitting an extended abstract.

About

Haskell is a modern functional programming language that allows rapid development of robust and correct software. It is renowned for its expressive type system, its unique approaches to concurrency and parallelism, and its excellent refactoring capabilities. Haskell is both the playing field of cutting-edge programming language research and a reliable base for commercial software development.

The workshop series Haskell in Leipzig (HaL), now in its 12th year, brings together Haskell developers, Haskell researchers, Haskell enthusiasts, and Haskell beginners to listen to talks, take part in tutorials, join in interesting conversations, and hack together. To support the latter, HaL will include a one-day hackathon this year. The workshop will have a focus on functional reactive programming (FRP) this time, while continuing to be open to all aspects of Haskell. As in the previous year, the workshop will be in English.

Contributions

Everything related to Haskell is on topic, whether it is about current research, practical applications, interesting ideas off the beaten track, education, or art, and topics may extend to functional programming in general and its connections to other programming paradigms.

Contributions can take the form of

  • talks (about 30 minutes),
  • tutorials (about 90 minutes),
  • demonstrations, artistic performances, or other extraordinary things.

Please submit an abstract that describes the content and form of your presentation, the intended audience, and required previous knowledge. We recommend a length of 2 pages, so that the program committee and the audience get a good idea of your contribution, but this is not a hard requirement.

Please submit your abstract as a PDF document via EasyChair until Friday, August 4, 2017. You will be notified by Friday, August 25, 2017.

Hacking Projects

Projects for the hackathon can be presented during the workshop. A prior submission is not needed for this.
