A satellite event of the 17th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP 2012).
Erlang is a concurrent, distributed functional programming language aimed at systems with requirements on massive concurrency, soft real time response, fault tolerance, and high availability. It has been available as open source for over a decade, creating a community that actively contributes to its already existing rich set of libraries and applications. Originally created for telecom applications, its usage has spread to other domains including e-commerce, banking, databases, and computer telephony and messaging.
Erlang programs are today among the largest applications written in any functional programming language. These applications offer new opportunities to evaluate functional programming and functional programming methods on a very large scale and suggest new problems for the research community to solve.
This workshop will bring together the open source, academic, and industrial programming communities of Erlang. It will enable participants to familiarize themselves with recent developments on new techniques and tools tailored to Erlang, novel applications, draw lessons from users’ experiences and identify research problems and common areas relevant to the practice of Erlang and functional programming.
We invite three sorts of submissions.
Poster presentations describing topics related to the workshop goals. Each of them includes max 2 pages of the abstract and summary. Presentations in this category will be given an hour of shared simultaneous demonstration time.
