Announce: Haskell Platform 8.0.1

On behalf of the Haskell Platform team, I'm happy to announce the release of

Haskell Platform 8.0.1

Now available at

This platform includes features initially planned in the "Improving
the 'Get Haskell Experience'" proposal of June 2015. [1]

   * Minimal as well as Full distributions. The minimal distribution
only includes GHC core libraries as well as additional tools. This is
now the recommended distribution. The Full distribution remains an
option for those who want a one-step installer with the broader set of
platform libraries preinstalled.

   * Inclusion of the Stack tool for developing Haskell projects [2]

Other highlights of this release include the following

   * The new cabal 1.24 including the great "new-build" tech preview
of nix-like build dependency management [3]

   * On windows, a cabal/msys setup that allows packages such as
"network" to build "out of the box". (almost*)

   * At long last, prebuilt Linux 32 bit platform installers

CFP: Workshop on Type-driven Development (TyDe '16)

                             FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS

                     1st Type-Driven Development (TyDe '16)
                                 A Workshop on
                   Dependently Typed and Generic Programming

                           18 September, Nara, Japan

The deadline of the inaugural edition of TyDe is approaching rapidly.
Please submit full papers before June 10th and abstracts before
June 24th.

# Goals of the workshop

The workshop on Type-Driven Development aims to show how static type
information may be used effectively in the development of computer
programs. The workshop, co-located with ICFP, unifies two workshops: the
Workshop on Dependently Typed Programming and the Workshop on Generic

These two research areas have a rich history and bridge both theory and
practice. Novel techniques explored by both communities has gradually
spread to more mainstream languages. This workshop aims to bring
together leading researchers and practitioners in generic programming
and dependently typed programming from around the world, and features
papers capturing the state of the art in these important areas.

We welcome all contributions, both theoretical and practical, on:

-   dependently typed programming;
-   generic programming;
-   design and implementation of programming languages, exploiting types
    in novel ways;
-   exploiting typed data, data dependent data, or type providers;
-   static and dynamic analyses of typed programs;
-   tools, IDEs, or testing tools exploiting type information;
-   pearls, being elegant, instructive examples of types used in the
    derivation, calculation, or construction of programs.

IFL 2016 - Call for papers


KU Leuven, Belgium

In cooperation with ACM SIGPLAN

August 31 - September 2, 2016


The goal of the IFL symposia is to bring together researchers actively engaged
in the implementation and application of functional and function-based
programming languages. IFL 2016 will be a venue for researchers to present and
discuss new ideas and concepts, work in progress, and publication-ripe results
related to the implementation and application of functional languages and
function-based programming.


Following the IFL tradition, IFL 2016 will use a post-symposium review process
to produce the formal proceedings. All participants of IFL 2016 are invited to
submit either a draft paper or an extended abstract describing work to be
presented at the symposium. At no time may work submitted to IFL be
simultaneously submitted to other venues; submissions must adhere to ACM
SIGPLAN's republication policy:

The submissions will be screened by the program committee chair to make sure
they are within the scope of IFL, and will appear in the draft proceedings
distributed at the symposium. Submissions appearing in the draft proceedings
are not peer-reviewed publications. Hence, publications that appear only in the
draft proceedings are not subject to the ACM SIGPLAN republication policy.
After the symposium, authors will be given the opportunity to incorporate the
feedback from discussions at the symposium and will be invited to submit a
revised full article for the formal review process. From the revised
submissions, the program committee will select papers for the formal
proceedings considering their correctness, novelty, originality, relevance,
significance, and clarity. The formal proceedings will appear in the
International Conference Proceedings Series of the ACM Digital Library.

|| November 6-8, Dubai, United Arab Emirates 

Over the past several years, we have seen a rapid rising emphasis on design, implement and manage complex
computer systems to help us deal with an increasingly volatile, globalised complex world. These systems
are critical for dealing with the Grand Challenge problems we are facing in the 21st century, including
health care, urbanization, education, energy, finance, and job creation. The complex computer systems
are frequently distributed over heterogeneous networks and processing large amount data.
Performance, real-time behavior, fault tolerance, security, adaptability, development time and
cost, long life concerns are the key issues. 

The goal of this conference is to bring together industrial, academic, and government experts, from a
variety of user domains and software disciplines, to determine how the disciplines' problems and
solution techniques interact within the whole system. Researchers, practitioners, tool developers
and users, and technology transition experts are all welcome. The scope of interest includes long-term
research issues, near-term complex system requirements and promising tools, existing complex
systems, and commercially available tools.

DSLDI 2016: Call for Talk Proposals


DSLDI 2016

Fourth Workshop on
Domain-Specific Language Design and Implementation

October 31, 2016
Amsterdam, Netherlands
Co-located with SPLASH


Deadline for talk proposals: August 1, 2016

*** Workshop Goal ***

Well-designed and implemented domain-specific languages (DSLs) can achieve both
usability and performance benefits over general-purpose programming languages.
By raising the level of abstraction and exploiting domain knowledge, DSLs can
make programming more accessible, increase programmer productivity, and support
domain-specific optimizations.

The goal of the DSLDI workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners interested in discussing how DSLs should be designed,
implemented, supported by tools, and applied in realistic contexts. The focus
of the workshop is on all aspects of this process, from soliciting domain
knowledge from experts, through the design and implementation of the language,
to evaluating whether and how a DSL is successful. More generally, we are
interested in continuing to build a community that can drive forward the
development of modern DSLs.

An additional goal of this year's workshop is to encourage discussion about the
usability of DSLs, and to establish connections with researchers in related
areas, such as end-user software engineering, who have studied human factors of
programming languages and tools.

*** Workshop Format ***

DSLDI is a single-day workshop and will consist of moderated audience
discussions structured around a series of talks. The role of the talks is to
facilitate interesting and substantive discussion. Therefore, we welcome and
encourage talks that express strong opinions, describe open problems, propose
new research directions, and report on early research in progress.

Proposed talks should be on topics within DSLDI's area of interest, which
include but are not limited to:

 * solicitation and representation of domain knowledge
 * DSL design principles and processes
 * DSL implementation techniques and language workbenches
 * domain-specific optimizations
 * human factors of DSLs
 * tool support for DSL users
 * community and educational support for DSL users
 * applications of DSLs to existing and emerging domains
 * studies of usability, performance, or other benefits of DSLs
 * experience reports of DSLs deployed in practice

*** Call for Submissions ***

We solicit talk proposals in the form of short abstracts (max. 2 pages). A good
talk proposal describes an interesting position, open problem, demonstration,
or early achievement. The submissions will be reviewed on relevance and
clarity, and used to plan the mostly interactive sessions of the workshop day.
Publication of accepted abstracts and slides on the website is voluntary.

* Special Session on Simulation of Urban Traffic Management and ITS

This special session focuses on simulation tools and real-time
simulation applications used in and for evaluation, management, and
design of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), as well as Smart
Cities. Such simulations are expected to offer prediction and
on-the-flow feedback for the better decision-making, bringing up means
for both the implementation of more complex traffic management systems
and end-user applications. Off-line and real-time analyses of data
collected from infrastructured systems (e.g. real-time traffic
information), mobile, distributed technologies (e.g. communication
devices), and socially-build systems (e.g. social networks
applications) are of great interest for shaping and influencing how
ITS solutions are designed. Thus, we are particularly interested in
how these data and technologies can be incorporated in domain-related
models and simulations. We aim to bring together experts from both
industry and academia to discuss the challenges related to modelling
and simulation for ITS.

Web page:

* Special Session on Distributed Simulations of Distributed Systems

Distributed simulation (DS) is a valuable tool for understanding and
evaluating distributed systems. The current computing trend sees
businesses and individuals moving toward a more centralized
infrastructure, namely the cloud. On the one hand, as the computing
infrastructure at data centers is highly complex and distributed, DS
becomes essential for diagnosing and gaining insights of the system.
On the other hand, the scale and nature of interaction between
different components in the cloud present new challenges and push DS's
state of the art.

Another computing trend that has potential to drive DS is
internet-of-things. Such complex systems consist of a large number of
autonomous, heterogeneous devices communicating with one another in
non-uniform manner. DS is valuable not only for discerning system
properties but also for predicting the devices' emergent behavior.
Finally, users in online social networks make up large distributed
systems. Insights of user interaction and the network's collective
behavior --- the study of which fits well into the realm of DS ---
bring significant value to both the society and the business of social
network providers.

This special session seeks to bring together experts and practitioners
in the domain of DS to discuss new opportunities and challenges for
DS. We welcome research papers on both theoretical and empirical

Web page:

* Special Session on Augmented and Virtual Reality for Real-Time Applications

Virtual Reality (VR) allows users to be immersed in and interact with
a fully virtual computer generated environment. On the other hand,
Augmented Reality (AR) technologies add digital information on top of
the physical reality, allowing users to gain more knowledge about
their environment. VR and AR can become valuable tools for
understanding, visualizing or evaluating real-time applications, such
as simulations.

Both technologies offer tremendous possibilities in terms of
visualization, interaction and collaboration and become widely
available with the development of new affordable devices and toolkits.

This special sessions aims at bringing together industrial experts and
researchers from academia to present their results and discuss the
challenges related to the use of VR and AR technologies dedicated to

* Special Session on Agent-based Modeling and Simulation

This special session focuses on general aspects and special properties
for agent-based modeling and simulations that allows them to be
applied on several scientific domains, such as sociology, physics,
chemistry, biology, ecology, and economy. The session is intended to
bring together researchers and practitioners, so they can present the
current status of their work and discuss the challenges they face in
developing solutions and applications for agent-based simulations.
Consequently, the design of these simulations aims not only to social
contexts but also to more technical domains, which involves highly
complex interactive systems.

Erlang Workshop | 19 May 13:28 2016

[ANN] Final Call for Papers: Erlang Workshop 2016 -- Submission deadline (3 June) approaching

Apologies for any duplicates you may receive.


Fifteenth ACM SIGPLAN Erlang Workshop

Nara, Japan, September 23, 2016
Satellite event of the 21st ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP 2016)
September 18-24, 2016

The Erlang Workshop aims to bring together the open source, academic,
and industrial communities of Erlang, to discuss technologies and
languages related to Erlang. The Erlang model of concurrent programming
has been widely emulated, for example by Akka in Scala, and even new
programming languages were designed atop of the Erlang VM, such as
Elixir. Therefore we would like to broaden the scope of the workshop to
include systems like those mentioned above.

The workshop will enable participants to familiarize themselves with
recent developments on new techniques and tools, novel applications,
draw lessons from users' experiences and identify research problems and
common areas relevant to the practice of Erlang, Erlang-like languages,
functional programming, distribution, concurrency etc.

We invite three types of submissions.

1. Technical papers describing interesting contributions either in
theoretical work or real world applications. Submission related to
Erlang, Elixir, Akka, CloudHaskell, Occam, and functional programming
are welcome and encouraged. Topics of interest include (but are not
limited to):

  - virtual machine extensions and compilation techniques
  - implementations and interfaces of Erlang in/with other languages
  - new tools (profilers, tracers, debuggers, testing frameworks etc.)
  - language extensions
  - formal semantics, correctness and verification
  - testing Erlang programs
  - program analysis and transformation
  - Erlang-like languages and technologies
  - functional languages and multi-processing
  - concurrency in functional languages
  - functional languages and distributed computing
  - parallel programming
  - pattern based programming
  - Erlang in education

The maximum length for technical papers is restricted to 12 pages.

2. Experience reports describing uses of Erlang in the "real-world",
Erlang libraries for specific tasks, experiences from using Erlang
in specific application domains, reusable programming idioms and
elegant new ways of using Erlang to approach or solve a particular
problem. The maximum length for the experience report is restricted
to 2 pages.

3. Poster presentations describing topics related to the workshop goals.
Each includes a maximum of 2 pages of the abstract and summary.
Presentations in this category will be given an hour of shared
simultaneous demonstration time.

RV 2016, Deadline for abstract on May 20 (AoE)

Following several requests, the deadlines have been extended as follows:

- Abstract deadline: Friday May 20 (AoE).
- Paper and tutorial deadline: Friday May 27 (AoE).


RV 2016
16th International Conference on Runtime Verification
September 23-30, Madrid, Spain


Runtime verification is concerned with monitoring and analysis of software and hardware system executions. Runtime verification techniques are crucial for system correctness, reliability, and robustness; they are significantly more powerful and versatile than conventional testing, and more practical than exhaustive formal verification. Runtime verification can be used prior to deployment, for testing, verification, and debugging purposes, and after deployment for ensuring reliability, safety, and security and for providing fault containment and recovery as well as online system repair. Topics of interest to the conference include:

- specification languages
- specification mining
- program instrumentation
- monitor construction techniques
- logging, recording, and replay
- runtime enforcement, fault detection, localization, containment, recovery and repair
- program steering and adaptation
- metrics and statistical information gathering
- combination of static and dynamic analyses
- program execution visualization
- monitoring techniques for safety/mission-critical systems
- monitoring distributed systems, cloud services, and big data applications
- monitoring security and privacy policies

Application areas of runtime verification include cyber-physical systems, safety/mission-critical systems, enterprise and systems software, autonomous and reactive control systems, health management and diagnosis systems, and system security and privacy.

Invited Speakers

The program of RV 2016 will feature invited talks from:

Gul Agha (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA)
Oded Maler (CNRS and University of Grenoble-Alpes, France)
Fred B. Schneider (Cornell University, USA)


RV 2016 will be held September 23-30 in Madrid, Spain. RV 2016 will feature the first summer school on Runtime Verification (September 23-25), two workshop days (September 26-25), and three conference days (September 28-30).

General Information on Submissions

All papers and tutorials will appear in the conference proceedings in an LNCS volume. Submitted papers and tutorials must use the LNCS/Springer style. At least one author of each accepted paper and tutorial must attend RV 2016 to present the paper. Papers must be written in English and submitted electronically (in PDF format) using the EasyChair system. The below page limitations include all text and figures, but exclude references. Additional details omitted due to space limitations may be included in a clearly marked appendix that will be reviewed at the discretion of reviewers.

Research Papers Track

Research papers can be submitted in two categories: regular and short papers. Papers in both categories will be reviewed by at least 3 members of the Program Committee. 

Regular Papers (up to 15 pages) should present original unpublished results. Theoretical papers, system and application papers as well as case studies on runtime verification are all welcome. 
The Program Committee of RV 2016 will give a best paper award. A selection of accepted regular papers will be invited to appear in a special issue of the Springer Journal on Formal Methods in System Design.

Short Papers (up to 6 pages) may present novel but not necessarily thoroughly worked out ideas, for example emerging runtime verification techniques and applications, or techniques and applications that establish relationships between runtime verification and other domains. Accepted short papers will be presented in special talk (15 minutes) and poster sessions.

Tool Papers Track

The aim of the RV 2016 tool track is to provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to show and to discuss the latest advances, experiences and challenges in devising and developing reliable software tools for runtime verification. All tool papers will be reviewed by at least 3 members of the Tool Committee. An author of each accepted tool paper should give a 15-20 minutes demonstration during the conference.

All tool papers must include information on tool availability, maturity, selected experimental results and it should provide a link to a website containing the theoretical background and user guide. Furthermore, we strongly encourage authors to make their tools and benchmarks available with their submission.
We encourage tool papers to include a script in an appendix (not included in the page count) describing how the demo will be conducted during the conference presentation with screenshots presenting step-by-step the tool’s capabilities, highlighting the main characteristics and the usage.

Tool papers can be submitted into two categories: 

Regular Tool Papers (up to 8 pages). A tool paper in this category should present a new tool, a new tool component or significant and novel extensions to existing tools supporting runtime verification. Each submission should be original and not published previously in a tool paper form.
Tool Exhibition Papers (up to 4 pages). A tool paper in this category can have been previously published. A tool paper in this category should be oriented towards the tool usage and is an opportunity for the developers to present them at RV 2016.

Tutorial Track

Tutorials are two-to-three-hour presentations on a selected topic. Additionally, tutorial presenters will be offered to publish a paper of up to 20 pages in the LNCS conference proceedings.

A proposal for a tutorial must contain the subject of the tutorial, a proposed timeline, a note on previous similar tutorials (if applicable) and the differences to this incarnation, and a biography of the presenter. The proposal must not exceed 2 pages. Tutorial proposals will be reviewed by the Program Committee.
