Journal of Functional Programming

Deadline: 31st October 2017


Many students complete PhDs in functional programming each year. As a service to the community, the Journal of Functional Programming publishes the abstracts from PhD dissertations completed during the previous year.

The abstracts are made freely available on the JFP website, i.e. not behind any paywall. They do not require any transfer of copyright, merely a license from the author. A dissertation is eligible for inclusion if parts of it have or could have appeared in JFP, that is, if it is in the general area of functional programming. The abstracts are not reviewed.

Please submit dissertation abstracts according to the instructions below. 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 31st October 2017.

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.
