                    FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

WFLP 2006 - 14th Workshop on Functional and (Constraint) Logic Programming

      Facultad de Informatica - Universidad Complutense de Madrid

               Madrid, Spain, November 16-17, 2006



The Workshop on Functional and (Constraint) Logic Programming aims at bringing
together researchers interested in functional programming, (constraint) logic
programming, as well as their integration. It promotes the cross-fertilizing
exchange of ideas and experiences among researches and students from the
different communities interested in the foundations, applications, and
combinations of high-level, declarative programming languages and related areas.

The previous WFLP editions are: WCFLP 2005 (Tallinn, Estonia),
WFLP 2004 (Aachen, Germany),  WFLP 2003 (Valencia, Spain),
WFLP 2002 (Grado, Italy), WFLP 2001 (Kiel, Germany),
WFLP 2000 (Benicassim, Spain), WFLP'99 (Grenoble, France),
WFLP'98 (Bad Honnef, Germany), WFLP'97 (Schwarzenberg, Germany),
WFLP'96 (Marburg, Germany), WFLP'95 (Schwarzenberg, Germany),
WFLP'94 (Schwarzenberg, Germany), WFLP'93 (Rattenberg, Germany),
and WFLP'92 (Karlsruhe, Germany).


WFLP'06 solicits papers in all areas of functional and (constraint) logic
programming, including (but not limited to):

    * Language Design: modules and type systems, multi-paradigm languages,
       concurrency and distribution, objects
    * Foundations: formal semantics, rewriting and narrowing, non-monotonic
       reasoning, dynamics, type theory
    * Implementation: abstract machines, parallelism, compile-time and run-time
       optimizations, interfacing with external languages
    * Transformation and Analysis: abstract interpretation, specialization,
       partial evaluation, program transformation, meta-programming
    * Software Engineering: design patterns, specification, verification and
       validation, debugging, test generation
    * Integration of Paradigms: integration of declarative programming with 
       paradigms such as imperative, object-oriented, concurrent, and real-time 
    * Applications: declarative programming in education and industry,
       domain-specific languages, visual/graphical user interfaces, embedded
       systems, WWW applications, knowledge representation and machine learning,
       deductive databases, advanced programming environments and tools

The main focus is on new and original research results but submissions
describing innovative products, prototypes under development or interesting
experiments (e.g., benchmarks) are also encouraged.


Authors are invited to submit an abstract and a list of keywords
     not later than July 13, 2006,
and a complete paper (no longer than 14 pages including figures and references)
     not later than July 20, 2006.

Style and formatting instructions, as well as the concrete submission procedure
via a web page will be detailed in next call for papers.


A preprint of the proceedings will be available to the participants during the
workshop. It is planned to publish the proceedings as a special number of
Electronic Notes of Theoretical Computer Science (Elsevier) after the workshop,
but this must be confirmed.
