    2007 Workshop on Scheme and
    Functional Programming
    Freiburg, Germany --- 30 September 2007

    The 2007 Scheme Workshop is a forum for discussing experience with and future
    development of the Scheme programming language. The scope of the workshop
    includes all aspects of the design, implementation, theory, and application of
    Scheme. We encourage everyone interested in Scheme to participate.

    This workshop forms part of the 2007 International Conference on Functional
    Programming (ICFP) as an associated, ACM SIGPLAN sponsored event.

    Topics of interest for technical papers include (but are not limited to):

    Design. Language critiques and extensions, concurrency and distribution,
    components and composition, language embedding, object systems, type
    systems, exception handling, syntactic abstraction, module systems and
    libraries, multiparadigm programming, scripting.

    Implementation. Compilers, interpreters, runtime systems, virtual machines,
    resource management, program analysis and transformation, partial
    evaluation, compile-time and run-time optimization, foreign function and
    operating system interfaces, embedded systems.

    Development tools. Profilers, tracers, debuggers, program development
    environments, program understanding tools, performance and conformance
    test suites.

    Theory. Formal semantics, correctness of analyses and transformations, lambda
    calculus, continuations, program verification.

    Education. Teaching Scheme, teaching with Scheme.

    Topics of interest for experience papers include (but are not limited to):

    Applications. Domain-specific languages, graphical user interfaces, web
    programming, network applications, multimedia programming, systems
    programming, symbolic computing, large systems, use of Scheme as a
    scripting language.

    Practice and experience. Experience with Scheme in education and industry.

    Scheme pearls. Elegant, instructive uses of Scheme.

    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

    System Demonstrations. Authors of both technical and experience papers are
    invited to describe, in an appendix, proposals for system demonstrations to be
    given during the workshop.

    Panel Discussions. We also invite proposals for panel discussions on topics of
    interest to the Scheme community. Authors of accepted proposals will give a
    brief presentation on the topic and then moderate the discussion that follows.
