                           CALL FOR PAPERS

                               WGP 2010

           6th ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Generic Programming
                       Baltimore, Maryland, US
                     Sunday, September 26th, 2010


Collocated with the International Conference on Functional Programming
                             (ICFP 2010)

Goals of the workshop

Generic programming is about making programs more adaptable by making
them more general. Generic programs often embody non-traditional kinds
of polymorphism; ordinary programs are obtained from them by suitably
instantiating their parameters. In contrast with normal programs, the
parameters of a generic program are often quite rich in structure; for
example they may be other programs, types or type constructors, class
hierarchies, or even programming paradigms.

Generic programming techniques have always been of interest, both to
practitioners and to theoreticians, and, for at least 20 years,
generic programming techniques have been a specific focus of research
in the functional and object-oriented programming communities. Generic
programming has gradually spread to more and more mainstream
languages, and today is widely used in industry. This workshop brings
together leading researchers and practitioners in generic programming
from around the world, and features papers capturing the state of the
art in this important area.

We welcome contributions on all aspects, theoretical as well as
practical, of

    * polytypic programming,
    * programming with dependent types,
    * programming with type classes,
    * programming with (C++) concepts,
    * generic programming,
    * programming with modules,
    * meta-programming,
    * adaptive object-oriented programming,
    * component-based programming,
    * strategic programming,
    * aspect-oriented programming,
    * family polymorphism,
    * object-oriented generic programming,
    * and so on.

History of the Workshop on Generic Programming

This year:

  * Baltimore, Maryland, US 2010 (affiliated with ICFP10)

Earlier Workshops on Generic Programming have been held in

  * Edinburgh, UK 2009 (affiliated with ICFP09)
  * Victoria, BC, Canada 2008 (affiliated with ICFP),
  * Portland 2006 (affiliated with ICFP),
  * Ponte de Lima 2000 (affiliated with MPC),
  * Marstrand 1998 (affiliated with MPC).

Furthermore, there were a few informal workshops

  * Utrecht 2005 (informal workshop),
  * Dagstuhl 2002 (IFIP WG2.1 Working Conference),
  * Nottingham 2001 (informal workshop),

There were also (closely related) DGP workshops in Oxford (June
3-4 2004), and a Spring School on DGP in Nottingham (April 24-27
2006, which had a half-day workshop attached).

The WGP steering committee consists of J Gibbons, R Hinze, P Jansson,
J Jarvi, J Jeuring, B Oliveira, S Schupp and M Zalewski
