Thank you for your attention, and my apologies for any duplication you
receive. Please find below the Call for Papers for the *2020 Scheme and
Functional Programming Workshop*. We look forward to your submissions.

*Call for Papers*The 2020 Scheme and Functional Programming Workshop is
calling for submissions.

We invite high-quality papers about novel research results, lessons learned
from practical experience in industrial or educational setting, and even
new insights on old ideas. We welcome and encourage submissions that apply
to any language that can be considered Scheme: from strict subsets of RnRS
to other “Scheme” implementations, to Racket, to Lisp dialects including
Clojure, Emacs Lisp, Common Lisp, to functional languages with
continuations and/or macros (or extended to have them) such as Dylan,
ECMAScript, Hop, Lua, Scala, Rust, etc. The elegance of the paper and the
relevance of its topic to the interests of Schemers will matter more than
the surface syntax of the examples used. Topics of interest include (but
are not limited to):

Interaction: program-development environments, debugging, testing,
Implementation: interpreters, compilers, tools, garbage collectors,
Extension: macros, hygiene, domain-specific languages, reflection, and how
such extension affects interaction.
Expression: control, modularity, ad hoc and parametric polymorphism, types,
aspects, ownership models, concurrency, distribution, parallelism,
non-determinism, probabilism, and other programming paradigms
Integration: build tools, deployment, interoperation with other languages
and systems
Formal semantics: Theory, analyses and transformations, partial evaluation
Human Factors: Past, present and future history, evolution and sociology of
the language Scheme, its standard and its dialects
Education: approaches, experiences, curricula
Applications: industrial uses of Scheme
Scheme pearls: elegant, instructive uses of Scheme

*Important dates*
Submission deadline is 15 May 2020.
Authors will be notified by 12 June 2020.
Camera-ready versions are due 30 June 2020.
All deadlines are (23:59 UTC-12), “Anywhere on Earth”.
Submission Information
Paper submissions must use the format acmart and its sub-format acmlarge.
They must be in PDF, printable in black and white on US Letter size.
Microsoft Word and LaTeX templates for this format are available at:

This format is in line with ACM conferences (such as ICFP with which we are
colocated). It is recommended to use the review option when submitting a
paper; this option enables line numbers for easy reference in reviews.

We want to encourage all kinds of submissions, including full papers,
experience reports and lightning talks. Papers and experience reports are
limited to 14 pages, but we encourage submitting smaller papers. Lightning
talks are limited to 192 words. Each accepted paper and report will be
presented by its authors in a 25 minute slot including Q&A. Each accepted
lightning talk will be presented by its authors in a 5 minute slot,
followed by 5 minutes of Q&A.

The size limits above exclude references and any optional appendices. There
are no size limits on appendices, but the papers should stand without the
need to read them, and reviewers are not required to read them.

Authors are encouraged to publish any code associated to their papers under
an open source license, so that reviewers may try the code and verify the

Proceedings will be printed as a Technical Report at the University of
Michigan and uploaded to arXiv.org

Publication of a paper at this workshop is not intended to replace
conference or journal publication, and does not preclude re-publication of
a more complete or finished version of the paper at some later conference
or in a journal.
