Journal of Functional Programming

Deadline: 30th April 2015


Many students complete PhDs in functional programming each year, but there is currently no common location in which to promote and advertise the resulting work. The Journal of Functional Programming would like to change that!

As a service to the community, JFP recently launched a new feature, in the form of a regular publication of abstracts from PhD dissertations that were completed during the previous year. The abstracts are made freely available on the JFP website, i.e. not behind any paywall, and do not require any transfer for copyright, merely a license from the author.

Please submit dissertation abstracts according to the instructions below. A dissertation is eligible if parts of it have or could have appeared in JFP, that is, if it is in the general area of functional programming. JFP will not have these abstracts reviewed. We welcome submissions from both the PhD student and PhD advisor/supervisor although we encourage them to coordinate.


Please submit the following information to Graham Hutton ( by 30th April 2015.

Please do not submit a copy of the dissertation itself, as this is not required. JFP reserves the right to decline to publish abstracts that are not deemed appropriate.
