ICFP 2021 hosts a number of workshops (and other co-located events, such as symposiums) with the option to be sponsored by SIGPLAN. These events are less formal and more focused than ICFP itself, this includes sessions that enable interaction among the attendees, and foster the exchange of new ideas.
Call for Workshop Proposals
The 26th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming will be virtual on August 22-27, 2021. ICFP provides a forum for researchers and developers to hear about the latest work on the design, implementations, principles, and uses of functional programming.
Proposals are invited for workshops (and other co-located events, such as symposiums) to be affiliated with ICFP 2021 and sponsored by SIGPLAN. These events should be less formal and more focused than ICFP itself, include sessions that enable interaction among the attendees, and foster the exchange of new ideas. The preference is for one-day events, but other schedules can also be considered.
The workshops are scheduled to occur on August 22rd (the day before ICFP) and 26-27th of August (the two days after ICFP).
