FLOPS is a forum for research on all issues concerning declarative programming, including functional programming and logic programming, and aims to promote cross-fertilization and integration between the two paradigms. Previous FLOPS meetings were held in Fuji Susono (1995), Shonan Village (1996), Kyoto (1998), Tsukuba (1999), Tokyo (2001), Aizu (2002), Nara (2004), Fuji Susono (2006), and Ise (2008).

TOPICS

FLOPS solicits original papers in all areas of functional and logic programming, including (but not limited to):

  • Declarative Pearls: new and excellent declarative programs with illustrative applications.
  • Language issues: language design and constructs, programming methodology, integration of paradigms, interfacing with other languages, type systems, constraints, concurrency and distributed computing.
  • Foundations: logic and semantics, rewrite systems and narrowing, type theory, proof systems.
  • Implementation issues: compilation techniques, memory management, program analysis and transformation, partial evaluation, parallelism.
  • Applications: case studies, real-world applications, graphical user interfaces, Internet applications, XML, databases, formal methods and model checking.
  • The proceedings will be published as an LNCS volume. The proceedings of the previous meeting (FLOPS 2008) were published as LNCS 4989.

SUBMISSION

Submissions must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Work that already appeared in unpublished or informally published workshops proceedings may be submitted. Submissions should fall into one of the following categories:

  • Regular research papers: they should describe new results and will be judged on originality, correctness, and significance.
  • System descriptions: they should contain a link to a working system and will be judged on originality, usefulness, and design.

All submissions must be written in English and can be up to 15 proceedings pages long (though pearls are usually shorter). Authors are strongly encouraged to use LaTeX2e and the Springer llncs class file, available at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html

Regular research papers should be supported by proofs and/or experimental results. In case of lack of space, this supporting information should be made accessible otherwise (e.g., a link to a web page, or an appendix). Papers should be submitted electronically at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=flops2010

IMPORTANT DATES

  • Submission deadlines:
  • Author notification: December 21, 2009
  • Camera-ready copy: January 24, 2010
  • Conference: April 19-21, 2010
