                         Final Call For Papers


   *Eleventh International Symposium on Functional and Logic Programming 
(FLOPS 2012)*
   May 23-25, 2012
   Kobe, Japan

   FLOPS is a forum for research on all issues concerning declarative
   programming, including functional programming and logic programming,
   and aims to promote cross-fertilization and integration between the
   two paradigms. Previous FLOPS meetings were held in Fuji Susono
   (1995), Shonan Village (1996), Kyoto (1998), Tsukuba (1999), Tokyo
   (2001), Aizu (2002), Nara (2004), Fuji Susono (2006), Ise (2008),
   and Sendai (2010).

   FLOPS solicits original papers in all areas of functional and logic
   programming, including (but not limited to):
   - Declarative Pearls: new and excellent declarative programs with
     illustrative applications.
   - Language issues: language design and constructs, programming 
     integration of paradigms, interfacing with other languages, type 
     constraints, concurrency and distributed computing.
   - Foundations: logic and semantics, rewrite systems and narrowing, type
     theory, proof systems.
   - Implementation issues: compilation techniques, memory management, 
     analysis and transformation, partial evaluation, parallelism.
   - Applications: case studies, real-world applications, graphical user
     interfaces, Internet applications, XML, databases, formal methods 
and model

   The proceedings will be published as an LNCS volume. The proceedings
   of the previous meeting (FLOPS 2010) were published as LNCS 6009.

   Submissions must be unpublished and not submitted for publication
   elsewhere. Work that already appeared in unpublished or informally
   published workshops proceedings may be submitted. Submissions should
   fall into one of the following categories:
   - Regular research papers: they should describe new results and will be
     judged on originality, correctness, and significance.
   - System descriptions: they should contain a link to a working system and
     will be judged on originality, usefulness, and design.
   Submissions must be written in English and can be up to 15 pages
   long, though pearls are typically considerably shorter. Authors are
   required to use LaTeX2e and the Springer llncs class file, available at

   Regular research papers should be supported by proofs and/or
   experimental results. In case of lack of space, this supporting
   information should be made accessible otherwise (e.g., a link to a
   web page, or an appendix). Papers should be submitted electronically
   at [https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=flops2012].

Important Dates
   - Submission deadline : December 16, 2011    (EXTENDED)
   - Author notification : February 3, 2012
   - Camera-ready copy : March 2, 2012

Place and Related Events
   Takikawa Memorial Hall, Kobe University,
