================================================================================

                                    IFL 2018                                   
    30th Symposium on Implementation and Application of Functional Languages   


                   University of Massachusetts Lowell, MA, USA
                             September 5th-7th, 2018
                         
                            http://iflconference.org

================================================================================

### Scope

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 2018 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.

Topics of interest to IFL 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


### Keynote Speakers

* Adam Chlipala, Massachusetts Institute of Technology CSAIL
* Arjun Guha, University of Massachusetts Amherst


### Submissions and peer-review

Differently from previous editions of IFL, IFL 2018 solicits two kinds of
submissions:

* Regular papers (12 pages including references)
* Draft papers for presentations ('weak' limit between 8 and 15 pages)

Regular papers will undergo a rigorous review by the program committee, and will
be evaluated according to their correctness, novelty, originality, relevance,
significance, and clarity. A set of regular papers will be conditionally
accepted for publication. Authors of conditionally accepted papers will be
provided with committee reviews along with a set of mandatory revisions.
Regular papers not accepted for publication will be considered as draft papers,
at the request of the author.

Draft papers will be screened to make sure that they are within the scope of
IFL, and will be accepted for presentation or rejected accordingly.

Prior to the symposium:
  Authors of conditionally accepted papers and accepted presentations will
  submit a pre-proceedings version of their work that will appear in the draft
  proceedings distributed at the symposium. The draft proceedings does not
  constitute a formal publication.
 
  We require that at least one of the authors present the work at IFL 2018.

After the symposium:

  Authors of conditionally accepted papers will submit a revised versions of
  their paper for the formal post-proceedings.
  The program committee will assess whether the mandatory revisions have been
  adequately addressed by the authors and thereby determines the final
  accept/reject status of the paper.
  Our interest is to ultimately accept all conditionally accepted papers. If you
  are an author of a conditionally accepted paper, please make sure that you
  address all the concerns of the reviewers.
 

  Authors of accepted presentations 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 post-proceedings.
  The program committee will evaluate these submissions according to their
  correctness, novelty, originality, relevance, significance, and clarity, and
  will thereby determine whether the paper is accepted or rejected.
 

### Publication

The formal proceedings will appear in the International Conference Proceedings
Series of the ACM Digital Library.

At no time may work submitted to IFL be simultaneously submitted to other
venues; submissions must adhere to ACM SIGPLAN's republication policy:

### Peter Landin Prize

### Acknowledgments

This call-for-papers is an adaptation and evolution of content from previous
instances of IFL. We are grateful to prior organizers for their work, which is
reused here.

A part of IFL 2018 format and CFP language that describes conditionally accepted
papers has been adapted from call-for-papers of OOPSLA conferences.
