ICFP 2020 hosts a number of workshops (and other co-located events, such as symposiums) with the option to be sponsored by SIGPLAN. These events are less formal and more focused than ICFP itself, this includes sessions that enable interaction among the attendees, and foster the exchange of new ideas.
Call for Workshop Proposals
The 25th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming will be held in Jersey City, New Jersey on August 23-28, 2020. ICFP provides a forum for researchers and developers to hear about the latest work on the design, implementations, principles, and uses of functional programming.
Proposals are invited for workshops (and other co-located events, such as symposiums) to be affiliated with ICFP 2020 and sponsored by SIGPLAN. These events should be less formal and more focused than ICFP itself, include sessions that enable interaction among the attendees, and foster the exchange of new ideas. The preference is for one-day events, but other schedules can also be considered.
The workshops are scheduled to occur on August 23rd (the day before ICFP) and 27–28th of August (the two days after ICFP).
Deadline for submission: November 15, 2019
Notification of acceptance: December 13, 2019
Prospective organizers of workshops or other co-located events are invited to submit a completed workshop proposal form in plain text format to the ICFP 2020 workshop co-chairs (Jennifer Hackett and Leonidas Lampropoulos) via email to
