Well-Typed at CUFP

Ian Lynagh – Sunday, 03 May 2009

all events icfp well-typed  

The Commercial Users of Functional Programming (CUFP) workshop is in Edinburgh this year, on the 4th September, along with the developer tracks on the 3rd and 5th. Both Duncan and I will be there, as well as at ICFP and the other co-located events. If you'll be there then and would like to talk to us, either about Well-Typed or about the Industrial Haskell Group (IHG), then drop us an e-mail or just find us during the week.

In the mean time, if you'd like to give a 25 minute talk about your experiences with functional programming at CUFP, then you have just two weeks to submit a proposal. These talks are a great way for everyone to benefit from each others' experiences. The call says:

Talks are typically 25 minutes long, but can be shorter. They aim to inform participants about how functional programming played out in real-world applications, focusing especially on the re-usable lessons learned, or insights gained. Your talk does not need to be highly technical; for this audience, reflections on the commercial, management, or software engineering aspects are, if anything, more important. You do not need to submit a paper! Talks on the practical application of functional programming with a primarily technical focus may also be appropriate for the adjacent DEFUN 2009 event.

If you are interested in offering a talk, or nominating someone to do so, send an e-mail to francesco(at)erlang-consulting(dot)com or jim(dot)d(dot)grundy(at)intel(dot)com by 15 May 2009 with a short description of what you'd like to talk about or what you think your nominee should give a talk about. Such descriptions should be about one page long.
