Date of the Workshop

Sunday, 23 August 2020.

Workshop Objectives

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 are pleased to announce that Erlang Workshop has implemented a Diversity and Inclusion Scheme!

Our community is an open and supporting tech community, but - unfortunately - we are nowhere near as diverse as we would wish it to be. We believe that everybody, regardless of their gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, age, socioeconomic background etc. should feel welcome and comfortable. Our event follows the ACM Code of Conduct Policy.

Thanks to our supporting sponsors, Kivra, we are able to offer this year Diversity & Inclusion Scholarships that cover the cost of full tickets for the Erlang workshop and all events of ICFP. The goal of this scheme is to increase the diversity of attendees and offer support to those that would not otherwise be able to attend. It is primarily aimed at (but not restricted to) women, people from ethnic minorities and people with disabilities.

If you wish to apply for the Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship, please fill in the form. The workshop chairs will review the applications. They are committed to protect the anonymity of applicants; all application data will only be used for the scholarship evaluation.

The deadline for applications is August 10, 2020. Recipients will be notified on a rolling basis, no later than August 20, 2020.

All applicants will be notified via email with conference registration details.

Call for Papers

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Erlang Workshop will be held in an all-virtual format this year.

Jersey City, New Jersey, United States, Sun 23 August 2020

Satellite event of the 25th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP 2020) Sun 23 - Fri 28 August 2020

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 two types of submissions.

  1. Technical papers describing language extensions, critical discussions of the status quo, formal semantics of language constructs, program analysis and transformation, virtual machine extensions and compilation techniques, implementations and interfaces of Erlang in/with other languages, and new tools (profilers, tracers, debuggers, testing frameworks, etc.). Submission related to Erlang, Elixir, Scala/Akka, CloudHaskell, Lisp Flavoured Erlang, OCaml, and functional programming are welcome and encouraged. The maximum length for technical papers is restricted to 12 pages, but short papers (max. 6 pages) are welcomed as well.

  2. Practice and application papers 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 practice and application papers is restricted to 12 pages, but short papers (max. 6 pages) are welcomed as well.
