Commercial Users of Functional Programming Workshop (CUFP) 2010Call for Presentations
Sponsored by SIGPLANCo-located with ICFP 2010
Baltimore, Maryland Oct 1-2, 2010
Submission Deadline: 15 June 2010
Functional programming languages have been a hot topic of academicresearch for over 35 years, and have seen an ever larger practical impact in settings ranging from tech startups to financial firms tobiomedical research labs.  At the same time, a vigorous community ofpractically-minding functional programmers has come into existence.
CUFP is designed to serve this community.  The annual CUFP workshop isa place where people can see how others are using functionalprogramming to solve real world problems; where practitioners meet and collaborate; where language designers and users can share ideas aboutthe future of their favorite language; and where one can learnpractical techniques and approaches for putting functional programming to work.
# Giving a CUFP Talk #
If you have experience using functional languages in a practicalsetting, we invite you to submit a proposal to give a talk at the workshop.  We're looking for two kinds of talks:
*Experience reports* are typically 25 minutes long, and aim to informparticipants about how functional programming plays out in real-world applications, focusing especially on lessons learned and insightsgained. Experience reports don't need to be highly technical;reflections on the commercial, management, or software engineering aspects are, if anything, more important. You do not need to submit apaper!
*Technical talks* are expected to be 30-45 minutes long, and shouldfocus on teaching the audience something about a technical technique or methodology, from the point of view of someone who has seen it playout in practice.  These talks could cover anything from techniques forbuilding functional concurrent applications, to managing dynamic reconfigurations, to design recipes for using types effectively inlarge-scale applications.  While these talks will often be based on aparticular language, they should be accessible to a broad range of functional programmers.
If you are interested in offering a talk, or nominating someone to doso, send an e-mail to francesco(at)erlang-consulting(dot)com oryminsky(at)janestreet(dot)com by **15 June 2010** with a short description of what you'd like to talk about or what you think your nominee shouldgive a talk about. Such descriptions should be about one page long.
There will be no published proceedings, as the meeting is intended to be more a discussion forum than a technical interchange.
