CALL FOR PARTICIPATION:
================================================================================

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


                   University of Massachusetts Lowell, MA, USA
                             September 5th-7th, 2018

                            http://iflconference.org


September 5th: Haskell Mini-Course by Galois, Inc, see details below.

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

### 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.

### Keynote Speakers

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

### Haskell Mini-Course (September 5th, 2018)

Mini-course on Haskell by Galois, Inc,
presented by David Thrane Christiansen and Jose Manuel Calderon Trilla.

Register: Attendance at the course is free, but you must RSVP.
(Link to RSVP form can be found at http://iflconference.org)

Course Description:

Recent versions of the GHC compiler for Haskell feature support for a
number of
advanced type system features, including pattern-matching functions in the
type
system (type families), indexed families (generalized algebraic datatypes,
or
GADTs), type-level data structures (data kinds), and general compile-time
metaprogramming (Template Haskell). At Galois, we use these features in a
number
of our projects, which allows us to build deep embeddings of programming
languages and have GHC enforce the target language's type system for us.
This
style of programming ensures that we only produce well-typed terms,
including
that we do not forget any of the run-time checks that are necessary to
preserve
our invariants when accepting input from untyped sources such as files.

In the course of developing these projects, some common problems and
programming
patterns emerged. We developed the `parameterized-utils` library to codify
solutions to these problems, and provide necessary generalizations of
interfaces
from the standard library (Eq, Applicative, Traversable, etc.)

We will expect that participants in the course have used Haskell before,
but we
will not expect everyone to be experts. We will introduce GADTs, type
families,
and data kinds, and then show how to use them together with the tools from
parameterized-utils with an implementation of the simply-typed lambda
calculus,
including basic AST definitions, evaluation, and parsing.


### 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.
