 Ninth International Symposium on Functional and Logic Programming
                            (FLOPS 2008)
                         April 14-16, 2008
                             Ise, Japan

               Submission deadline: October 10, 2007


 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), and Fuji Susono (2006).


 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
   methodology, integration of paradigms, interfacing with other
   languages, type systems, constraints, concurrency and distributed

   Foundations: logic and semantics, rewrite systems and narrowing,
   type theory, proof systems;

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

   Applications: case studies, real-world applications, graphical
   user interfaces, Internet applications, XML, databases, formal
   methods and model checking.

 The proceedings are expected to be published as an LNCS volume.  The
 proceedings of the previous meeting (FLOPS2006) were published as
 LNCS 3945.

 Submissions must be unpublished and not submitted for publication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 Work that already appeared in unpublished or informally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.

 All submissions must be written in English and can be up to 15
 proceedings pages long. Authors are strongly encouraged 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).  Submission is Web-based.  Please visit
 the conference site.
