Fifth ACM SIGPLAN Erlang Workshop
Portland, Oregon, September 16, 2006
Satellite event of ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming, September 18-20, 2006

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 several years 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, and computer telephony.

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.

Important Dates
  • Submission deadline - June 9th 2006
  • Author notification - June 28th 2006
  • Final submission - TBA
Submission and publication information
  • The workshop will have printed proceedings which will be distributed to the participants at the time of the workshop. Subsequently, the papers will be included in the ACM Digital Library.
  • Authors are therefore advised to use the ACM SIGPLAN style file for conference proceedings when preparing their submissions.
  • Authors should submit extended abstracts or provisional full papers in PDF, formatted for A4 paper, to Phil Trinder (trinder@macs.hw.ac.uk). The length should be restricted to 12 pages in standard ACM format.
  • In previous workshops we have had a mix of papers representing academic research and industrial experiences with Erlang. We particularly welcome papers describing new and novel application of Erlang - if you have any doubts about the suitability of a paper please feel free to contact the Program Chair for advice.
