CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
13th International Symposium
Trends in Functional Programming 2012
St Andrews, U.K.
June 12-14, 2012
The symposium on Trends in Functional Programming (TFP) is an
international forum for researchers with interests in all aspects of
functional programming, taking a broad view of current and future
trends in the area. It aspires to be a lively environment for
presenting the latest research results, and other contributions (see
below), described in draft papers submitted prior to the symposium. A
formal post-symposium refereeing process then selects a subset of the
articles presented at the symposium and submitted for formal
Selected papers will be published as a Springer Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (LNCS: http://www.springer.com/lncs) volume.
TFP 2012 will be the main event of a week of functional programming
extravaganza at the University of St Andrews. The week will start with
the International Workshop on Trends in Functional Programming in
Education, followed by TFP, followed by a workshop on 75 years of
Lambda Calculus, an Erlang day, and a technical workshop on Patterns
for MultiCores (ParaPhrase/Release projects).
The TFP symposium is the heir of the successful series of Scottish
Functional Programming Workshops. Previous TFP symposia were held in
Edinburgh (Scotland) in 2003, in Munich (Germany) in 2004, in Tallinn
(Estonia) in 2005, in Nottingham (UK) in 2006, in New York (USA) in
2007, in Nijmegen (The Netherlands) in 2008, in Komarno (Slovakia) in
2009, in Oklahoma (USA) in 2010, and in Madrid (Spain) in 2011. For
further general information about TFP please see the TFP homepage at
