                     CALL FOR TALK PROPOSALS

                            HOPE 2016

                 The 5th ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on
               Higher-Order Programming with Effects

                         September 18, 2016
                             Nara, Japan
                      (the day before ICFP 2016)



HOPE 2016 aims at bringing together researchers interested in the
design, semantics, implementation, and verification of higher-order
effectful programs. It will be *informal*, consisting of invited
talks, contributed talks on work in progress, and open-ended
discussion sessions.

Goals of the Workshop

A recurring theme in many papers at ICFP, and in the research of many
ICFP attendees, is the interaction of higher-order programming with
various kinds of effects: storage effects, I/O, control effects,
concurrency, etc. While effects are of critical importance in many
applications, they also make it hard to build, maintain, and reason
about one's code. Higher-order languages (both functional and
object-oriented) provide a variety of abstraction mechanisms to help
"tame" or "encapsulate" effects (e.g. monads, ADTs, ownership types,
typestate, first-class events, transactions, Hoare Type Theory,
session types, substructural and region-based type systems), and a
number of different semantic models and verification technologies have
been developed in order to codify and exploit the benefits of this
encapsulation (e.g. bisimulations, step-indexed Kripke logical
relations, higher-order separation logic, game semantics, various
modal logics). But there remain many open problems, and the field is
highly active.

The goal of the HOPE workshop is to bring researchers from a variety
of different backgrounds and perspectives together to exchange new and
exciting ideas concerning the design, semantics, implementation, and
verification of higher-order effectful programs.

We want HOPE to be as informal and interactive as possible. The
program will thus involve a combination of invited talks, contributed
talks about work in progress, and open-ended discussion
sessions. There will be no published proceedings, but participants
will be invited to submit working documents, talk slides, etc. to be
posted on the workshop's website.

Call for Talk Proposals

We solicit proposals for contributed talks. We recommend preparing
proposals of at most 2 pages, in either plain text or PDF
format. However, we will accept longer proposals or submissions to
other conferences, under the understanding that PC members are only
expected to read the first two pages of such longer submissions. When
submitting talk proposals, authors should specify how long a talk the
speaker wishes to give. By default, contributed talks will be 30
minutes long, but proposals for shorter or longer talks will also be
considered. Speakers may also submit supplementary material (e.g. a
full paper, talk slides) if they desire, which PC members are free
(but not expected) to read.

We are interested in talks on all topics related to the interaction of
higher-order programming and computational effects. Talks about work
in progress are particularly encouraged. If you have any questions
about the relevance of a particular topic, please contact the PC
chairs, Aleks Nanevski (aleks.nanevski at imdea.org) and Lars Birkedal
(birkedal at cs.au.dk).
