Call for presentations


The Linux Conf Australia 2016 Functional Programming Miniconference is
looking for presentations about functional programming and free software. 

    What are we looking for?

    We are looking for talks that will interest FP newcomers and experienced
    practitioners alike. linux.conf.au attendees have diverse programming
    and computing experience; accordingly we are unlikely to accept
    proposals that assume significant prior knowledge of FP, category
    theory, etc.

    Here are some possible topic areas, to get the ideas flowing:

     + Teach an FP concept that can be applied in a variety of languages,
       including those not normally considered “functional”.
     + Demonstrate an emerging programming tool or technique such as
       hole-driven development or proof search.
     + Share your experience of learning or teaching FP, starting a meetup,
       or adopting FP in your workplace.
     + Explain the benefits of FP for writing correct, maintainable and high
       performance software.
     + Show how FP is used to build some awesome and/or well known free
       software program.

    As with the conference proper, all talks must relate to free/open source
    software in some way.

    First-time speakers are encouraged to apply! If you would like help
    fleshing out an abstract or have any questions feel free to contact the

The conference is co-located with Linux Conf Australia which will be held in
Geelong in the first week of February.  More information:

Important dates:

    Deadline for proposals: November 9th

I offered to forward this message on after interacting with an organiser on
