The symposium is a forum for research on all issues concerning
functional programming and logic  programming. In particular,
it wants to stimulate the cross-fertilization as well as integration
of the two  paradigms. The symposium takes place about every 1.5
years in Japan. Previous FLOPS meetings were held in Fuji Susuno (1995),

Shonan Village (1996), Kyoto(1998), and Tsukuba (1999).


The 5th International Symposium on Functional and Logic Programming
solicits original papers in all areas of functional and logic
programming, including (but not limited to):

* Language issues: language design and constructs,
    programming methodology, integration of paradigms,
    interfacing with other languages, type systems, constraints,
    concurrency and distributed computing

* Foundations: semantics, rewrite systems and narrowing,
    type theory, proof systems

* Implementation: compilation techniques, memory management,
    program analysis and transformation, partial evaluation,

* Applications: case studies, real-world applications,
    graphical user interfaces, internet applications,
    database connection, formal methods and model checking
