Call for participation
The Central European Functional Programming School (CEFP) is organised every second year (2005 Budapest - LNCS vol. 4164, 2007 Cluj-Napoca - LNCS vol. 5161, 2009 Komarno - LNCS vol. 6299). It is the Central European counterpart of the Advanced Functional Programming school with the additional goal to stimulate students from Central Europe to attend.
The goals of the CEFP summer school are:
Bring together computer scientists, in particular young researchers (PhD students), and make them familiar with the latest functional programming techniques.
Show the use of advanced functional programming techniques in real world applications.
Bridge the gap between recent results presented at programming conferences and material from introductory textbooks on functional programming.
Provide a forum for PhD students to present their research results. The CEFP school provides a forum for PhD students to present their research results as part of the workshop programme. Abstract submission is before the summer school, full paper version after the summer school. Selected and reviewed papers will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science Volume of the revised lectures. The volume will be available online on SpringerLink.
The deadline for the abstracts is April 30, 2011. The abstract should be between 1-3 Springer LNCS pages. If this space would not be enough extended abstract up to 7 pages can be sent. Please send the abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The summer school's programme includes:
In depth lectures about a selected number of recently emerged advanced functional programming techniques, taught by experts in the field.
Practical exercises accompanying the lectures to be solved by the students at the school. These exercises guide the students' learning to a great extent. A high quality lab is available at the school site.
Team work is stimulated, such that the students can also learn from each other.
The event is organized and hosted by the Department of Programming Languages and Compilers, Faculty of Informatics, Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Hungary.
Budapest is the capital of Hungary with nearly 2.000.000 inhabitants. It is divided into two parts by the river Danube. There are nine bridges over the river which connect the two sides. The most beautiful ones are Chain Bridge (Lánchíd), Elisabeth Bridge (Erzsébet híd) and Liberty Bridge (Szabadság híd). One of the best places to walk around is the Castle District. There is a breath-taking view of the city from the Fisherman's Bastion. Across from the Fisherman's Bastion is Matthias Church named after the Hungarian King Matthias. In the Castle District you can find the Sándor Palace is the residence and workplace of the Head of the State.
Budapest is richly endowed with natural springs of thermal waters possessing various medicinal properties (Gellért Baths and Hotel, Széchenyi Baths, Lukács Medicinal Baths etc.).
The largest building in the country is the building of the Hungarian Parliament, which is situated on the bank of the Danube. The Neo-Gothic building complex was built between 1884 and 1904 according to the plans of Imre Steindl.
There are many other sights in Budapest, just like Heroes' Square, St. Stephen's Basilica, Andrássy Avenue, Margaret-island, Gellért Hill and the Citadell etc. For more information about Budapest, please visit the http://www.budapestinfo.hu home page.
