The Scheme and Functional Programming Workshop is a yearly meeting of programming language practitioners who share an aesthetic sense embodied by the Algorithmic Language Scheme: universality through minimalism, and flexibility through rigorous design.

We invite high-quality papers about novel research results, lessons learned from practical experience in an industrial or educational setting, and even new insights on old ideas. We welcome and encourage submissions that apply to any dynamic functional language, especially those that can be considered a Scheme: from strict subsets of RnRS to other “Scheme” implementations, to Racket, to Lisp dialects including Clojure, Emacs Lisp, Common Lisp, to functional languages with continuations and/or macros (or extended to have them) such as Dylan, ECMAcript, Hop, Lua, Scala, Rust, etc. The elegance of the paper and the relevance of its topic to the interests of Schemers will matter more than the surface syntax of the examples used. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Interaction: program-development environments, debugging, testing, refactoring
  • Implementation: interpreters, compilers, tools, garbage collectors, benchmarks
  • Extension: macros, hygiene, domain-specific languages, reflection, and how such extension affects interaction.
  • Expression: control, modularity, ad hoc and parametric polymorphism, types, aspects, ownership models, concurrency, distribution, parallelism, non-determinism, probabilism, and other programming paradigms
  • Integration: build tools, deployment, interoperation with other languages and systems -Formal semantics: Theory, analyses and transformations, partial evaluation
  • Human Factors: Past, present and future history, evolution and sociology of the language Scheme, its standard and its dialects
  • Education: approaches, experiences, curricula
  • Applications: industrial uses of Scheme
  • Scheme pearls: elegant, instructive uses of Scheme
