IFL 2002
14th International Workshop on the
Implementation of Functional Languages

Madrid, Spain
September 16th - 18th, 2002

The IFL workshops are a tradition that has lasted for over a decade. The aim of these workshops is to bring together researchers actively engaged in the implementation and application of functional programming languages to discuss new results and new directions of research.

NEW!!: IFL 2003 will take place in Edinburgh. It will be co-located with TFT 2004 (Fourth international symposium on Trends in Functional Programming)

Event Site
Have a look at IFL02 photographs!!

The workshop and the reception wine will take place in the Medicine Faculty , of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. The Medicine Faculty is located just in front of the underground station Ciudad Universitaria (have a look at the university map).

Here you can have a look at the conference room, called room Schüller
Madrid Information

Given an address, here you can find photographs of most of the buildings placed in Madrid.

Tourism Information , Madrid public transports  including Madrid underground (the cheapest and fastest way for traveling in Madrid. Have a look at its map ).

In order to arrive from the airport to the hotels, you can either take a taxi (15-20 euros) or use the underground (1 euro). In the second case, we suggest not to buy a single ticket, but one for 10 travels (called metrobus) whose price is 5 euros. Please, notice that the underground close at 2 in the night. So, it is not recommended to use from the airport after 1, as maybe you could not arrive to your final destination.
Excursion to Segovia

On the afternoon of September the 17th, we will visit Segovia, a nice small city in the north-west of Madrid. The main attractions of the city are the Roman Aqueduct, the Cathedral, the Alcázar, and ... the good food. Thus, the excursion will conclude with the workshop dinner in a typical restaurant of the city.


Have a look at the programme of the workshop, and also to the list of participants.
Workshop Topics

The workshop is intended to provide an open forum for researchers who wish to present and discuss new ideas and concepts, work in progress, preliminary results etc. related primarily but not exclusively to the implementation of functional or function-based languages. A not necessarily exhaustive list of topics includes

Contributions on applications of functional programming, e.g., in teaching, or on theoretical work in any of the above areas are also welcome.

All attendees are encouraged to submit papers to be published in the draft proceedings and to give presentations at the workshop. Submitted papers must be written in English and not exceed 16 pages. Papers should be written conform to the LNCS format and should be submitted as postscript (or pdf) by using the automatic submission page (dealine already finished).
LNCS Proceedings

We intend to publish a high-quality subset of contributions in the Springer LNCS series. All speakers attending the workshop are invited to submit a paper. Papers for the LNCS proceedings will be refereed according to normal conference standards. This implies (among other things) that:

IFL 2001 proceedings already published!. It is volume LNCS 2312 of Springer-Verlag.
