Seventeenth ACM SIGPLAN Erlang Workshop

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 three types of submissions.

  1. Technical papers describing interesting contributions either in theoretical work or real world applications. Submission related to Erlang, Elixir, Akka, CloudHaskell, Lisp Flavored Erlang, OCaml, and functional programming are welcome and encouraged. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

    • virtual machine extensions and compilation techniques
    • implementations and interfaces of Erlang in/with other languages
    • new tools (profilers, tracers, debuggers, testing frameworks etc.)
    • language extensions
    • formal semantics, correctness and verification
    • testing Erlang programs
    • program analysis and transformation
    • Erlang-like languages and technologies
    • functional languages and multi-processing
    • concurrency in functional languages
    • functional languages and distributed computing
    • parallel programming
    • pattern based programming
    • Erlang in education
