                  The 1998 International Conference on Functional Programming
                                                              Poster Session


                                              Mt Washington Conference Center
                                                              Baltimore, MD,
                                                        27-29 September 1998

As part of the International Conference on Functional Programming
(ICFP) '98, a Poster Session will be held on the evening of the first
day of the conference. The aim of the poster session is to give
students and professionals an opportunity to gain experience in
presenting technical material to the research community, and to get
technical advice from leading researchers in the field who will be
attending the conference.


Each participant in the Poster Session must submit a one page
abstract. The abstract should be between 500-750 words in length and
should give an overview of the research being presented including
citations to related work. These abstracts will be published in a
special section of the ICFP '98 Proceedings. Submitted abstracts (in
letter or A4 postscript form) should be emailed to

In addition to the abstract, each participant is also strongly
encouraged to submit a short article. Submitted articles will be
posted to the participants' page as they arrive and participants are
encouraged to send each other feedback as a means for preparing for
the Poster Session. There is also a group mailing list to which
participants will be added upon signing up.

Finally, participants should fill out and submit the sign-up sheet on
the ICFP '98 Poster Session homepage. The act of signing up gives an
indication of interest and helps in maintaining the list of


In the Poster Session, each participant will be provided with a space
(approximately 3x6 feet or 1x2 meters) for posting diagrams and short
descriptions of the research. For those who have never participated in
a Poster Session before, contact with the "audience" happens through
casual conversation. Count on only a reasonable attention span when
describing your work. Over five minutes is usually overdoing
it. Prepare a list of questions that you would like help getting
answered! Be sure to take a look at the Poster Session homepage for a
great paper on giving presentations.

Travel Fellowships for ACM SIGPLAN Student Attendees

Students who have a paper or a poster accepted at ICFP 98 and who are
members of ACM's SIGPLAN may apply for travel fellowships from the PAC
fund (http://www.acm/org/sigplan/PAC).


The final deadline for submission is July 15th, 1998, but we will only
hold the poster session if there is sufficient interest. Specifically,
we will hold it if at least 10 people sign up by July 1st, 1998. The
camera-ready copy of the one page abstracts must be available before
August 15, 1998.

ICFP '98 Poster Session Coordinator
