Central Scotland has been very influential in the development of functional programming, with notable contributions including the design, development and implementation of SASL, Standard ML and Haskell. At present there are internationally recognised research groups at the University of Edinburgh, University of Glasgow, Heriot-Watt University, University of St Andrews and University of Stirling, investigating a variety of theoretical and practical aspects of functional programming. The Scottish Functional Programming Workshops draw on the strengths of these and other Scottish centres, to provide an international forum for discussing Functional Programming research.

Previous workshops were held in Stirling (1999) and St Andrews (2000).

The 3rd Workshop

The 3rd Scottish Functional Programming Workshop will be held at the University of Stirling from the 22nd to the 24th of August 2001.

Participants will be selected on the basis of a 2 page abstract.

Participation is open, but if the workshop is oversubscribed then some preference may be shown to researchers in Scotland, especially postgraduate students, and to those with links to Scottish research groups.

All participants are expected to give a short presentation of their research.


Papers from all participants will appear in the draft proceedings.

A fully refereed proceedings will be published as a book by Intellect after the workshop.
