*** FLOPS 2010: 2nd Call for Papers ***

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
			SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

Tenth International Symposium on Functional and Logic Programming
			     (FLOPS 2010)
			  April 19-21, 2010
			    Sendai, Japan

            http://www.kb.ecei.tohoku.ac.jp/flops2010/

		Submission deadline: October 16, 2009

FLOPS is a forum for research on all issues concerning declarative
programming, including functional programming and logic programming,
and aims to promote cross-fertilization and integration between the
two paradigms.  Previous FLOPS meetings were held in Fuji Susono
(1995), Shonan Village (1996), Kyoto (1998), Tsukuba (1999), Tokyo
(2001), Aizu (2002), Nara (2004), Fuji Susono (2006), and Ise
(2008).

TOPICS

FLOPS solicits original papers in all areas of functional and logic
programming, including (but not limited to):

  Declarative Pearls: new and excellent declarative programs with
  illustrative applications.

  Language issues: language design and constructs, programming
  methodology, integration of paradigms, interfacing with other
  languages, type systems, constraints, concurrency and distributed
  computing.

  Foundations: logic and semantics, rewrite systems and narrowing,
  type theory, proof systems.

  Implementation issues: compilation techniques, memory management,
  program analysis and transformation, partial evaluation,
  parallelism.

  Applications: case studies, real-world applications, graphical
  user interfaces, Internet applications, XML, databases, formal
  methods and model checking.

The proceedings will be published as an LNCS volume. The proceedings
of the previous meeting (FLOPS 2008) were published as LNCS 4989.

SUBMISSION

Submissions must be unpublished and not submitted for publication
elsewhere. Work that already appeared in unpublished or informally
published workshops proceedings may be submitted. Submissions should
fall into one of the following categories:

  Regular research papers: they should describe new results and will
  be judged on originality, correctness, and significance.

  System descriptions: they should contain a link to a working
  system and will be judged on originality, usefulness, and design.

All submissions must be written in English and can be up to 15
proceedings pages long. Authors are strongly encouraged to use
LaTeX2e and the Springer llncs class file, available at
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html

Regular research papers should be supported by proofs and/or
experimental results.  In case of lack of space, this supporting
information should be made accessible otherwise (e.g., a link to a
web page, or an appendix). Papers should be submitted electronically
at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=flops2010
