The Workshop on Functional and  (Constraint) Logic Programming aims
at  bringing  together    researchers  interested   in   functional
programming,  (constraint) logic programming,     as well  as   the
integration of the two paradigms. It promotes the cross-fertilizing
exchange of  ideas  and experiences among  researchers and students
from the   different  communities interested   in the  foundations,
applications,     and   combinations   of high-level,   declarative
programming languages and related areas.

The previous WFLP editions are: 
WFLP 2007  (Paris, France),  WFLP 2006 (Madrid, Spain),  WCFLP 2005 
(Tallinn, Estonia),     WFLP 2004   (Aachen, Germany),    WFLP 2003 
(Valencia,   Spain), WFLP 2002   (Grado, Italy),   WFLP 2001 (Kiel, 
Germany), WFLP 2000 (Benicassim, Spain), WFLP'99 (Grenoble, France),
WFLP'98  (Bad Honnef,  Germany),   WFLP'97 (Schwarzenberg, Germany), 
WFLP'96  (Marburg,  Germany),    WFLP'95   (Schwarzenberg, Germany),
WFLP'94   (Schwarzenberg, Germany), WFLP'93   (Rattenberg, Germany),
and WFLP'92 (Karlsruhe, Germany).


WFLP'08 will be held in July in the convention centre of the
University of Siena, Italy:

The workshop will be co-located with WWV'08:


Siena is one of the nicest city in Italy. The historical centre is
situated  on   top of a   hill and   is made of beautiful medieval 
buildings   and   churches,   all surrounded by ancient walls. The 
countryside of Siena is worldwide famous for its beauty. The Palio 
of Siena is probably the most famous historical fair in Italy. The 
most   important event of it is a horse race  of medieval origins, 
which is held  in the afternoon of July 2nd  in 'Piazza del Campo' 
in the centre of Siena. For more information, please visit


WFLP'08 solicits papers in all areas of functional and (constraint)
logic programming, including but not limited to:

* Foundations:  formal     semantics,  rewriting and    narrowing,
constraint solving, dynamics, type theory
* Language Design:  modules    and  type systems,   multi-paradigm
languages, concurrency and distribution, objects
* Implementation: abstract machines, parallelism, compile-time and
run-time optimizations, interfacing with external languages
* Transformation    and       Analysis:  abstract  interpretation,
specialization, partial evaluation,  program     transformation,
* Software  Engineering:    design       patterns,  specification,
verification and validation, debugging, test generation
* Integration of Paradigms: integration of declarative programming
with  other  paradigms   such  as  imperative,  object-oriented,
concurrent, and real-time programming
* Applications: declarative programming in education and industry,
domain-specific languages, visual/graphical  user    interfaces,
embedded systems, WWW applications, knowledge representation and
machine   learning,    deductive databases, advanced programming
environments and tools


Authors  are invited to  submit papers of  at most 15 pages (pdf or
postscript formats) presenting  original,  not previously published
works. Submission categories include regular research papers, short
papers (not more than 8 pages) describing on-going work, and
system descriptions.  Papers should be submitted electronically via
the web-based submission  site

Preliminary proceedings will be available at the workshop. Selected 
authors  will be invited  to submit a  full version of their papers 
after  the workshop.  These submissions  will pass through a second
round of reviewing. Accepted contributions are going to be published
in the Elsevier series Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer
Science (ENTCS).
