ICFP 2003 seeks original papers on the full spectrum of the art, science, and practice of functional programming. The conference invites submissions on all topics ranging from principles to practice, from foundations to features, and from abstraction to application. The scope covers all languages that encourage programming with functions, including both purely applicative and imperative languages, as well as languages that support objects and concurrency. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Submission URL: http://www.cc.gatech.edu/icfp03/submit
Authors should submit a 100-200 word abstract and a full paper by 23:00 Universal Coordinated Time on Saturday, 29 March, 2003. Submissions should be no more than 12 pages (including bibliography and appendices) in standard ACM conference format: two columns, nine-point font on a ten-point baseline, with pages 20pc (3.33in) wide and 54pc (9in) tall, with a column gutter of 2pc (0.33in). Detailed formatting guidelines are available at http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html, along with formatting templates or style files for LaTeX, Word Perfect, and Word. You don't need to include categories, keywords, etc., though you are welcome to do so. Also, note that the ACM copyright notice is not required of submissions, only of accepted papers.
Authors wishing to supply additional material to the reviewers beyond the 12-page limit can do so in clearly marked appendices, on the understanding that reviewers are not required to read the appendices. Submissions that do not meet these guidelines will not be considered. The submission deadline and length above are firm.
Submissions will be carried out electronically via the Web, at the URL given above. Papers must be submitted in either PDF format, or as PostScript documents that are interpretable by Ghostscript, and they must be printable on US Letter sized paper. Individuals for which this requirement is a hardship should contact the program chair at least one week before the deadline.
Submitted papers must have content that has not previously been published in other conferences or refereed venues; simultaneous submission to other conferences or refereed venues is unacceptable. Each paper should explain its contributions in both general and technical terms, clearly identifying what has been accomplished, saying why it is significant, and comparing it with previous work. Authors should strive to make the technical content of their papers understandable to a broad audience.
Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign the ACM copyright form. Proceedings will be published by ACM Press.
