[CFP] Scheme 2022, 23rd Scheme and Functional Programming Workshop

From: Andy Keep
Subject: [CFP] Scheme 2022, 23rd Scheme and Functional Programming Workshop
Date: Sun, 20 Mar 2022 20:44:09 -0700

The 2022 Scheme and Functional Programming Workshop is calling for submissions.

We invite high-quality papers and talk proposals about novel research results, 
lessons learned from practical experience in an industrial or educational 
setting, and even new insights on old ideas. We welcome and encourage 
submissions that apply to any dynamic functional language, especially those 
that can be considered a Scheme: from strict subsets of RnRS to other "Scheme" 
implementations, to Racket, to Lisp dialects including Clojure, Emacs Lisp, 
Common Lisp, to functional languages with continuations and/or macros (or 
extended to have them) such as Dylan, ECMAScript, Hop, Lua, Scala, Rust, etc. 
The elegance of the paper and the relevance of its topic to the interests of 
Schemers will matter more than the surface syntax of the examples used.


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Interaction: program-development environments, debugging, testing, refactoring
Implementation: interpreters, compilers, tools, garbage collectors, benchmarks
Extension: macros, hygiene, domain-specific languages, reflection, and how such 
extension affects interaction
Expression: control, modularity, ad hoc and parametric polymorphism, types, 
aspects, ownership models, concurrency, distribution, parallelism, 
non-determinism, probabilism, and other programming paradigms
Integration: build tools, deployment, interoperation with other languages and 
Formal semantics: theory, analyses and transformations, partial evaluation
Human factors: past, present and future history, evolution and sociology of the 
language Scheme, its standard and its dialects
Education: approaches, experiences, curricula
Applications: industrial uses of Scheme
Scheme pearls: elegant, instructive uses of Scheme

Submission deadline is 2022-07-22.
Authors will be notified by 2022-08-15.
Camera-ready versions are due 2022-09-02.
Workshop will be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia on 2022-09-16.
All deadlines are 23:59 UTC-12, anywhere on Earth.

Submission Information

We encourage all kinds of submissions, including full papers, experience 
reports, and lightning talks. Papers and experience reports are expected to be 
10–24 pages in length using the single-column SIGPLAN acmart style. (For 
reference, this is about 5–12 pages of the older SIGPLAN 2-column 9pt style.) 
Abstracts submitted for lightning talks should be limited to 192 words.

Authors of each accepted submission are invited to attend and be available for 
the presentation of that paper at the conference. The schedule for 
presentations will be determined and shared with authors after the full program 
has been selected.

The size limits above exclude references and any optional appendices. There are 
no size limits on appendices, but the papers should stand without the need to 
read them, and reviewers are not required to read them.

Authors are encouraged to publish any code associated to their papers under an 
open source license, so that reviewers may try the code and verify the claims.

Proceedings will be uploaded to <>.

Publication of a paper at this workshop is not intended to replace conference 
or journal publication, and does not preclude re-publication of a more complete 
or finished version of the paper at some later conference or in a journal.

Please submit papers through the workshop's HotCRP site 

Lightweight double-blind reviewing

Scheme 2022 will use lightweight double-blind reviewing. Submitted papers must 
omit author names and institutions and reference the authors’ own related work 
in the third person (e.g., not “we build on our previous work…” but rather “we 
build on the work of…”).

The purpose is to help the reviewers come to an initial judgment about the 
paper without bias, not to make it impossible for them to discover the authors 
if they were to try. Nothing should be done in the name of anonymity that 
weakens the submission or makes the job of reviewing the paper more difficult 
(e.g., important background references should not be omitted or anonymized).

Formatting Information

Full papers and experience reports should use the SIGPLAN acmsmall option to 
acmart. We recommend using the anonymous and review options to acmart when 
submitting a paper; these options hide the author names and enable line numbers 
for easy reference in review. LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates for this 
format are available through SIGPLAN 

Lightning talks can be submitted as either a text file or a PDF file.

International Conference on Functional Programming

The Scheme Workshop 2022 is being held as part of this year's International 
Conference on Functional Programming. Here is the ICFP site
