The symposium recognizes that new trends may arise through various routes. As part of the Symposium's focus on trends we therefore identify the following five article categories. High-quality articles are solicited in any of these categories:
- Research Articles
- Leading-edge, previously unpublished research work;
- Position Articles
- On what new trends should or should not be;
- Project Articles
- Descriptions of recently started new projects;
- Evaluation Articles
- What lessons can be drawn from a finished project;
- Overview Articles
- Summarizing work with respect to a trendy subject.
Articles must be original and not simultaneously submitted for publication to any other forum. They may consider any aspect of functional programming: theoretical, implementation-oriented, or experience-oriented. Applications of functional programming techniques to other languages are also within the scope of the symposium.
Topics suitable for the symposium include, but are not limited to:
- Functional programming and multicore/manycore computing
- Functional programming in the cloud
- High performance functional computing
- Extra-functional (behavioural) properties of functional programs
- Dependently typed functional programming
- Validation and verification of functional programs
- Debugging and profiling for functional languages
- Functional programming in different application areas:
- security, mobility, telecommunications applications, embedded
- systems, global computing, grids, etc.
- Interoperability with imperative programming languages
- Novel memory management techniques
- Program analysis and transformation techniques
- Empirical performance studies
- Abstract/virtual machines and compilers for functional languages
- (Embedded) domain specific languages
- New implementation strategies
- Any new emerging trend in the functional programming area
Best Paper Awards
To reward excellent contributions, TFP awards a prize for the best paper accepted for the formal proceedings.
TFP traditionally pays special attention to research students, acknowledging that students are almost by definition part of new subject trends. A student paper is one for which the authors state that the paper is mainly the work of students, the students are listed as first authors, and a student would present the paper. A prize for the best student paper is awarded each year.
In both cases, it is the PC of TFP that awards the prize. In case the best paper happens to be a student paper, that paper will then receive both prizes.
We use EasyChair for the refereeing process. The link to the submission page will be available here.
Authors of papers have the choice of having their contributions formally reviewed either before or after the Symposium.
Pre-symposium formal reviewPapers to be formally reviewed before the symposium should be submitted before an early deadline and receive their reviews and notification of acceptance for both presentation and publication before the symposium. A paper that has been rejected in this process may still be accepted for presentation at the symposium, but will not be considered for the post-symposium formal review.
Post-symposium formal reviewDraft papers will receive minimal reviews and notification of acceptance for presentation at the symposium. Authors of draft papers will be invited to submit revised papers based on the feedback receive at the symposium. A post-symposium refereeing process will then select a subset of these articles for formal publication.
Draft papers and papers submitted for formal review are submitted as extended abstracts (4 to 10 pages in length) or full papers (20 pages). The submission must clearly indicate which category it belongs to: research, position, project, evaluation, or overview paper. It should also indicate which authors are research students, and whether the main author(s) are students. A draft paper for which all authors are students will receive additional feedback by one of the PC members shortly after the symposium has taken place.
Papers must be written in English, and written using the LNCS style. For more information about formatting please consult the Springer LNCS web site.
