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

*TOPICS [#r7d1a69b]

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

-Foundations: logic and semantics, rewrite systems and narrowing,
type theory, proof systems.

-Implementation issues: compilation techniques, memory management,
program analysis and transformation, partial evaluation,

-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 [#j5b30ae5]

Submissions must be unpublished and not submitted for publication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 Work that already appeared in unpublished or informally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

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
