Summer School and Workshop on
Advanced Functional Programming
St Anne's College, Oxford
19th to 24th August 2002
In this school we want to bring computer scientists, in particular young
researchers and programmers, up to date with the latest advanced
functional programming techniques. We do this by using advanced
functional programming techniques in "programming in the real world".
Thus we hope to bridge the gap between results presented at programming
conferences and material from introductory textbooks on functional
This is the fourth advanced functional programming school. The previous
schools were held in Bastad (Sweden, LNCS 925), Olympia (Washington,
USA, LNCS 1129), and Braga (Portugal, LNCS 1608). Each of these schools
was considered an interesting and great experience by almost all
There will be a number of in depth lectures about advanced functional
programming techniques, taught by the experts in the field. Lectures are
aimed especially at showing new programming techniques, introducing new
language constructs, and presenting interesting application areas.
Another important goal is to provide that kind of information which
enables participants to use functional programming in their daily life,
after returning from the school.
The lectures are accompanied by practical problems to be solved by the
participants at the school: the school emphasises learning by doing.
We expect that the ancient university town Oxford will add an extra
dimension to the school.
