Submissions related to Scheme, Racket, Clojure, and functional programming are welcome and encouraged. This year we are accepting general presentation proposals in addition to papers. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

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

We also welcome submissions related to dynamic or multiparadigmatic languages and programming techniques.

Paper submissions must be in ACM proceedings format, no smaller than 9-point type (10-point type preferred). Microsoft Word and LaTeX templates for this format are available at:

http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigplan/authorInformation.htm

Paper submissions should be in PDF and printable on US Letter, and generally in the range of 6 to 12 pages.

Presentation submissions should include an outline of the material. Talks are 40 minutes, including questions and answers.
