Summer School on Generic and Effectful Programming, 6 - 10 July 2015, St Anne's College, Oxford, UK

Publish Date: May 07, 2015

Deadline: Jun 21, 2015

Event Dates: from Jul 06, 2015 12:00 to Jul 10, 2015 12:00


Generic programming is a technique that exploits the inherent structure that exists in data, to automatically produce efficient and flexible algorithms that can be adapted to suit different needs. The goal of this school is to explore datatype-generic programming and related topics from a variety of different angles, emphasizing, in particular, the interplay of generics and effects.

This summer school is the closing activity of the EPSRC-funded project "Unifying Theories of Generic Programming" - at Oxford University.

Registration deadline: 21st June 2015

School: 6th to 10th July 2015, St Anne's College -

The school is aimed at doctoral students in programming languages and related areas; however, researchers and practitioners will be very welcome, as will strong master's students with the support of a supervisor. It will be assumed that participants have a good understanding of typed functional programming, as in Haskell, O'Caml, or F#.


Costs will be kept low, thanks to support from EPSRC. There will be a nominal registration fee of £135, and B&B accommodation in college will be £75(ensuite) or £48 (shared bathroom) per night. We can accept at most 50 participants; places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
