CALL FOR PAPERS

The 2008 ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on ML

Sunday, September 21, 2008
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
To be held in conjunction with ICFP 2008

http://www.kb.ecei.tohoku.ac.jp/ml2008/

IMPORTANT DATES:

Submission deadline: Monday, June 23, 2008
Notification of acceptance: Friday, July 18, 2008
Final revision due: Monday, July 28, 2008
Workshop: Sunday, September 21, 2008

GOALS OF THE WORKSHOP:

ML is a family of programming languages that includes dialects known as Standard ML, Objective Caml, and F#. The development of these languages has inspired a large amount of computer science research, both practical and theoretical. This workshop aims to build on previous occasions (recent instances are ML 2005 in Tallinn, Estonia,
2006 in Portland, Oregon, and 2007 in Freiburg, Germany), providing a forum to encourage discussion and research on ML and related technology.

The 2008 Workshop on ML will be held in conjunction with the 13th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP 2008) in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada on Sunday, September 21, 2008.

This year we extend the scope of the workshop from ML itself to technologies closely related to ML (higher-order, typed, or strict
languages) and invite high-quality papers in all areas of crucial importance for the future of ML.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:

We seek papers on topics related to ML, including (but not limited
to):

* applications

* extensions: objects, classes, concurrency, distribution and
mobility, semi-structured data handling, etc.

* type systems (static and dynamic): inference, effects, overloading,
error reporting, contracts, specifications and assertions, etc.

* implementation: compilers, interpreters, partial evaluators,
garbage collectors, etc.

* environments: libraries, tools, editors, debuggers, cross-language
interoperability, functional data structures, etc.

* semantics

Submitted papers should describe new ideas, experimental results, ML-related projects, or informed positions regarding proposals for next-generation ML languages. In order to encourage lively discussion, submitted papers may describe work in progress. All papers will be judged on a combination of correctness, significance, novelty, clarity, and interest to the community.

All paper submissions must be at most 12 pages total length in the standard ACM SIGPLAN two-column conference format (9pt):

Accepted papers will be published by the ACM and will appear in the ACM Digital Library.

More details about the submission procedure will be announced later on the web page:
