Sunday September 22, 2013, Boston, Massachusetts (co-located
The ML family of programming languages includes dialects known as Standard ML, OCaml, and F#. These languages have inspired a large amount of computer-science research, both practical and theoretical. This workshop aims to provide a forum where users, developers and researchers of ML languages and related technology can interact and discuss ongoing research, open problems and innovative applications.
Please register through ICFP's registration website.

Submissions should be at most two pages, in PDF format, and printable on US Letter or A4 sized paper. Submissions longer than half a page should include a one-paragraph synopsis suitable for inclusion in the workshop program.
Submissions must be uploaded to the workshop submission website before the submission deadline (Friday June 21, 2013). For any question concerning the scope of the workshop or the submission process, please contact the program chair.
The ML workshop has adopted an informal model since 2010. It is a workshop with presentations selected from submitted abstracts. There are no published proceedings, so any contributions may be submitted for publication elsewhere. We hope that this format encourages the presentation of exciting (if unpolished) research and deliver a lively workshop atmosphere.
Each presentation should take 20-25 minutes, except demos, which should take 10-15 minutes. The exact time will be decided based on the number of accepted submissions.
We seek research presentations on topics related to ML, including but not limited to
- Applications: case studies, experience reports, pearls, etc.
- Extensions: higher forms of polymorphism, generic programming, objects, concurrency, distribution and mobility, semi-structured data handling, etc.
- Type systems: inference, effects, overloading, modules, contracts, specifications and assertions, dynamic typing, error reporting, etc.
- Implementation: compilers, interpreters, type checkers, partial evaluators, runtime systems, garbage collectors, etc.
- Environments: libraries, tools, editors, debuggers, cross-language interoperability, functional data structures, etc.
- Semantics: operational, denotational, program equivalence, parametricity, mechanization, etc.
Three kinds of submissions will be accepted: Research Presentations, Experience Reports and Demos.
- Research Presentations: Research presentations should describe new ideas, experimental results, significant advances in ML-related projects, or informed positions regarding proposals for next-generation ML-style languages. We especially encourage presentations that describe work in progress, that outline a future research agenda, or that encourage lively discussion. These presentations should be structured in a way which can be, at least in part, of interest to (advanced) users.
- Experience Reports: Users are invited to submit Experience Reports about their use of ML languages. These presentations do not need to contain original research but they should tell an interesting story to researchers or other advanced users, such as an innovative or unexpected use of advanced features or a description of the challenges they are facing or attempting to solve.
- Demos: Live demonstrations or short tutorials should show new developments, interesting prototypes, or work in progress, in the form of tools, libraries, or applications built on or related to ML. (Please note that you will need to provide all the hardware and software required for your demo; the workshop organizers are only able to provide a projector.)
