The Call for Presentations is closed! Thanks for a great set of submissions - stay tuned for the final schedule.
- Call For Presentations Opens: Feb 18th, 2013
- Call For Presentations Closes: Apr 5th, 2013 (extended!)
- Notification by: Apr 12th, 2013
The conference program runs for three days. Each day will consist of multi-track sessions in the morning, long form workshops and jams in the afternoon, and a keynote at the end of the day.
All speakers receive free admission, 4 nights at the conference hotel, and US air travel or a stipend of $450 for international speakers.
Talk (40 minutes)
Talks are conventional conference presentations of 40 minutes including questions. They are conducted in a lecture format providing a focused explanation on a single topic. Audiences will be approximately 100-150 people.
Workshop (3 hours)
Workshops take the audience through the technical details of a specific language, technology, or technique. They are delivered to a small audience (25-30 people) and typically consist of instruction and hands-on exercises.
Workshop speakers may be requested to give their workshop more than once. There is a workshop stipend of $200 per workshop given in recognition of the extra work involved.
Jam (3 hours)
Jams are an opportunity for attendees to get their hands dirty. This is a new format and we are looking for a few mentors to help plan, prepare, and guide the jams.
The initial concept is that jams will be similar to code katas. The jam will lay out an initial problem and attendees will be encouraged to work on the problem in groups (language choice is open). After about an hour, mentors may further guide or redirect the problem based on feedback.
After approximately two hours, there will be a demo period where groups can present an interesting part of their solution. This is a great time to talk about language-specific features or examples, implementation techniques, etc.
The audience for Lambda Jam is functional programmers who are looking to increase their skills. We expect to have a wide range of experience levels from newbie to expert and content is needed for the entire range. Please feel comfortable to submit intro and deep technical talks.
It is perfectly fine to submit multiple talks or talks in more than one area. If you are submitting more than two or three talks, please contact email@example.com so we can narrow down the choices together.
Some example areas for submissions:
- Core functional programming - language features, techniques, idioms, design, concurrency, tooling
- Production functional programming - how functional programming is helping to solve interesting real-world problems
- Functional programming on the edge - new and crazy ideas, related paradigms, etc
Provide sufficient detail in your submission to enable the reviewers to understand your proposal and clearly identify what an attendee will gain from attending your session.
The program committee will review all submissions. Throughout the review period, submitters may be contacted to clarify details on their submission. All submitters will be notified via email of the status of their submission.
For questions or feedback, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
