Call for Papers: Scheme '24

From: Kristopher K Micinski
Subject: Call for Papers: Scheme '24
Date: Tue, 30 Apr 2024 02:31:51 +0000


 The 2024 Workshop on Scheme and Functional Programming
 Co-located with ICFP 2024 (Milan, Italy)


The 2024 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

* Topics

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

- Interaction: program-development environments, debugging, testing,
- Implementation: interpreters, compilers, tools, garbage collectors,
- 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
- Integration: build tools, deployment, interoperation with other
  languages and systems
- Formal semantics: theory, analyses and transformations, partial
- 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

* Dates

- Submission deadline is Thursday July 18, 2024.
- Authors will be notified by Monday August 12, 2024.
- Camera-ready versions are due Thursday August 29, 2024.
- Workshop will be held in Milan, Italy on Saturday September 7, 2024.

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

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 2024 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.
