The symposium on Trends in Functional Programming (TFP) is an international forum for researchers with interests in all aspects of functional programming, taking a broad view of current and future trends in the area. It aspires to be a lively environment for presenting the latest research results, and other contributions. See the call for papers for more details.

This year, TFP is moving to a winter date, to provide an opportunity for researchers in the FP community to meet and interact in between the annual ICFP events.

TFP offers a friendly and constructive reviewing process designed to help less experienced authors succeed, with an opportunity for two rounds of review, both before and after the symposium itself. Authors thus have an opportunity to address reviewers’ concerns before the final decision on publication in the Proceedings is taken, in the light of previous reviews and discussions at the symposium.

TFP offers two “best paper” awards, the John McCarthy award for best paper, and the David Turner award for best student paper.
