The HOPE workshop series are intended to bring together researchers
in the design, semantics, implementation, and verification of higher-order
effectful programs. They are informal, consisting of invited talks,
contributed talks on work in progress, and open-ended discussion sessions.
They are dedicated to John Reynolds, whose work is an inspiration to us all.
The 6th ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Higher-Order Programming with Effects will
take place on Sunday, September 3, 2017, that is, the day before ICFP 2017,
in Oxford, United Kingdom.
# Goals of the Workshop
A recurring theme in many papers at ICFP, and in the research of many ICFP
attendees, is the interaction of higher-order programming with various kinds
of effects: storage effects, I/O, control effects, concurrency, etc. While
effects are of critical importance in many applications, they also make code
harder to build, maintain, and reason about. Higher-order languages (both
functional and object-oriented) provide a variety of abstraction
help "tame" or "encapsulate" effects (e.g. monads, ADTs, ownership types,
typestate, first-class events, transactions, Hoare Type Theory, session
substructural and region-based type systems), and a number of different
semantic models and verification technologies have been developed in
codify and exploit the benefits of this encapsulation (e.g. bisimulations,
step-indexed Kripke logical relations, higher-order separation logic, game
semantics, various modal logics). But there remain many open problems,
field is highly active.
The goal of the HOPE workshop is to bring researchers from a variety of
different backgrounds and perspectives together to exchange new and exciting
ideas concerning the design, semantics, implementation, and verification of
higher-order effectful programs.
