The ML family workshop is colocated with the International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP) each year. In 2018, it will be held in Saint Louis (MO), USA. ICFP and the ML workshops are research-oriented events where the community meets to discuss research ideas – the co-located OCaml Workshop is more focused on the OCaml community and programmer experience. We are now inviting people to submit presentation proposals, to be evaluated and selected by the program committee. The deadline to submit a proposal is May 31st.
The ML workshop is a nice place to discuss ideas in language design and programming language research, including ideas developed in languages that do not have “ML” in their name (we’ve had talks in the past on Scala, Rust, etc.). If you know of someone doing interesting programming-language work and who may be interested in attending ICFP, feel free to encourage them to submit.
If you have any question regarding a potential submission, feel free to ask (here or by email).
(One has to register to attend the workshop – including presenters – and pay a registration fee. It is possible to apply for funding, especially for students, to attend the event.)
