[CALL FOR PAPERS] 17th Erlang Workshop 2018 -- 29 Sept 2018 -- St. Louis, Missouri, US

Natalia Chechina
Technical, practice, and application papers related to Erlang, BEAM, Elixir, Scala/Akka, CloudHaskell, Lisp Flavoured Erlang, OCaml, and functional programming are welcome and encouraged.


Seventeenth ACM SIGPLAN Erlang Workshop

St. Louis, Missouri, United States, 29 September 2018
Satellite event of the 23rd ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on
Functional Programming (ICFP 2018)
23 - 29 September, 2018

The Erlang Workshop aims to bring together the open source, academic,
and industrial communities of Erlang, to discuss technologies and
languages related to Erlang. The Erlang model of concurrent programming
has been widely emulated, for example by Akka in Scala, and even new
programming languages were designed atop of the Erlang VM, such as
Elixir. Therefore we would like to broaden the scope of the workshop
to include systems like those mentioned above.

The workshop will enable participants to familiarize themselves with
recent developments on new techniques and tools, novel applications,
draw lessons from users' experiences and identify research problems
and common areas relevant to the practice of Erlang, Erlang-like
languages, functional programming, distribution, concurrency etc.

We invite three types of submissions.

1. Technical papers describing language extensions, critical
discussions of the status quo, formal semantics of language
constructs, program analysis and transformation, virtual machine
extensions and compilation techniques, implementations and interfaces
of Erlang in/with other languages, and new tools (profilers, tracers,
debuggers, testing frameworks, etc.). Submission related to Erlang, 
Elixir, Scala/Akka, CloudHaskell, Lisp Flavoured Erlang, OCaml, and
functional programming are welcome and encouraged. The maximum length 
for technical papers is restricted to 12 pages.

2. Practice and application papers describing uses of Erlang in the
"real-world", Erlang libraries for specific tasks, experiences from
using Erlang in specific application domains, reusable programming
idioms and elegant new ways of using Erlang to approach or solve a
particular problem. The maximum length for the practice and
application papers is restricted to 12 pages.

3. Poster presentations describing topics related to the workshop
goals. Each includes a maximum of 2 pages of the abstract and summary.
Presentations in this category will be given an hour of shared
simultaneous demonstration time.

Note that the above are maximum lengths; we welcome shorter papers also,
and the program committee will evaluate all papers on an equal basis
independent of their lengths.
