    Call for Papers

    2010 Workshop on Scheme and Functional Programming

    Montréal, Québec, Canada
    Saturday and Sunday August 21-22, 2010

    Important Dates

    Submission: 16 June 2010 *** EXTENDED DEADLINE ***
    Notification: 4 July 2010
    Final papers due: 23 July 2010

    All deadlines are at 23:59 UTC (7:59 PM EDT, 6:59 PM CDT, 5:59 PM MDT,
    and 4:59 PM PDT).


    The 2010 Workshop on Scheme and Functional Programming is a forum
    for discussing experience with and future development of the
    Scheme programming language. Papers are invited concerning all
    aspects of the design, implementation, theory, and application of
    Scheme. Some example areas include (but are not limited to):

    - History, evolution and standardization of Scheme
    - Applications, experience and industrial uses of Scheme
    - Program-development environments, debugging, testing
    - Implementation (interpreters, compilers, tools, benchmarks, etc)
    - Distributed computing, concurrency, parallelism
    - Interoperability with other languages, FFIs
    - Continuations, macros, modules, object systems, types
    - Theory, formal semantics, correctness
    - Education
    - Scheme pearls (elegant, instructive uses of Scheme)

    There are two classes of submissions, regular papers (up to 12
    pages) and short papers (around 6 pages).

    A Scheme pearl submission is a special category, and should be a
    short paper presenting an algorithm, idea or programming device
    using Scheme in a way that is particularly elegant.

    Following the model of earlier workshops, Scheme pearls and
    experience papers need not necessarily report original research
    results; they may instead report practical experience that will be
    useful to others, re-usable programming idioms, or elegant new
    ways of approaching a problem. The key criterion for such a paper
    is that it makes a contribution from which other practitioners
    can benefit. It is not enough simply to describe a program!

    The proceedings of the conference will be published as a
    Université de Montréal technical report.

    Instructions for authors

    Authors should submit a 100-200 word abstract and a full paper by
    the end of Wednesday, 16 June 2010, Universal Coordinated Time. (The
    end of the day UTC corresponds to 23:59 UTC, 7:59 PM EDT, 6:59 PM
    CDT, 5:59 PM MDT, and 4:59 PM PDT.)

    Papers must be submitted in PDF format, or as PostScript
    documents that are interpretable by Ghostscript, and they must be
    printable on US Letter sized paper.

    Suitable style files for LaTeX:

    - class file

    - style guide

    - template

    - sample paper

    - sample references

    Submissions will be carried out electronically via the Web, at

    A submission will be evaluated according to its relevance,
    correctness, significance, originality, and clarity. It should
    explain its contributions in both general and technical terms,
    clearly identifying what has been accomplished, explaining why it
    is significant, and comparing it with previous work. The
    technical content should be accessible to a broad audience.

    There are two classes of submissions, regular papers and short

    Regular papers

    Submissions should be no more than 12 pages (including
    bibliography and appendices) in standard ACM conference format:
    two columns, nine point font on ten point baseline, page
    20pc (3.33in) wide and 54pc (9in) tall with a column gutter of
    2pc (0.33in). Authors wishing to supply additional material to
    the reviewers beyond the 12 page limit can do so in clearly
    marked appendices, on the understanding that reviewers may not
    read the appendices. Submissions that do not meet these
    guidelines will not be considered.

    Short papers

    Short papers need not present novel research; it is sufficient
    that they present material of interest or utility to the Scheme
    or functional-programming community. Scheme pearls submissions
    should be presented as short papers.

    Short papers should be formatted with the same guidelines as
    regular papers, but are expected to be around six pages in
