The goal of the IFL symposia is to bring together researchers actively engaged in the implementation and application of functional and function-based programming languages. IFL 2016 will be a venue for researchers to present and discuss new ideas and concepts, work in progress, and publication-ripe results related to the implementation and application of functional languages and function-based programming.
Following the IFL tradition, IFL 2016 will use a post-symposium review process to produce the formal proceedings. All participants of IFL 2016 are invited to submit either a draft paper or an extended abstract describing work to be presented at the symposium. At no time may work submitted to IFL be simultaneously submitted to other venues; submissions must adhere to ACM SIGPLAN's republication policy:
The submissions will be screened by the program committee chair to make sure they are within the scope of IFL, and will appear in the draft proceedings distributed at the symposium. Submissions appearing in the draft proceedings are not peer-reviewed publications. Hence, publications that appear only in the draft proceedings are not subject to the ACM SIGPLAN republication policy. After the symposium, authors will be given the opportunity to incorporate the feedback from discussions at the symposium and will be invited to submit a revised full article for the formal review process. From the revised submissions, the program committee will select papers for the formal proceedings considering their correctness, novelty, originality, relevance, significance, and clarity. The formal proceedings will appear in the International Conference Proceedings Series of the ACM Digital Library.

Prospective authors are encouraged to submit papers or extended abstracts to be published in the draft proceedings and to present them at the symposium. All contributions must be written in English. Papers must use the new ACM two columns conference format, which can be found at:
IFL welcomes submissions describing practical and theoretical work as well as submissions describing applications and tools in the context of functional programming. If you are not sure whether your work is appropriate for IFL 2016, please contact the PC chair at [hidden email]. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- language concepts - type systems, type checking, type inferencing - compilation techniques - staged compilation - run-time function specialization - run-time code generation - partial evaluation - (abstract) interpretation - metaprogramming - generic programming - automatic program generation - array processing - concurrent/parallel programming - concurrent/parallel program execution - embedded systems - web applications - (embedded) domain specific languages - security - novel memory management techniques - run-time profiling performance measurements - debugging and tracing - virtual/abstract machine architectures - validation, verification of functional programs - tools and programming techniques - (industrial) applications
Peter Landin Prize
The Peter Landin Prize is awarded to the best paper presented at the symposium every year. The honored article is selected by the program committee based on the submissions received for the formal review process. The prize carries a cash award equivalent to 150 Euros.

The 28th IFL will be held in association with the Faculty of Computer Science, KU Leuven, Belgium. Leuven is centrally located in Belgium and can be easily reached from Brussels Airport by train (~15 minutes). The venue in the Arenberg Castle park can be reached by foot, bus or taxi from the city center. See the website for more information on the venue.
