Second Call For Presentations: Compose NYC, June 24-25, 2019


The April 23 submission deadline for Compose NYC is rapidly approaching, so get

your submissions in soon.  We are also excited to announce that we now have two
confirmed keynote speakers:

David Spivak - Compositional Graphical Logic
Donya Quick - Making Algorithmic Music

Compose is a conference focused specifically on strongly typed functional
programming languages. It will be held in New York on Monday and Tuesday, June
24 -25, 2019. Registration will be open shortly.

To get a sense of Compose, you can check out the great talks from past

Below is our call for presentations.

In past years, we have also hosted an unconference over the weekend adjacent to
the conference.  The unconference details this year have not been finalized
yet, but if you’re interested you may want to keep that in mind when making
travel plans.


Compose Conference NYC 2019

Second Call for Presentations

June 24 -25, 2019

New York City

The audience for Compose is people using Haskell, PureScript, OCaml, F#, SML,
and other strongly typed functional programming languages who are looking to
increase their skills or learn new technologies and libraries. Presentations
should be aimed at teaching or introducing new ideas or tools. We are also
interested in presentations aiming at taking complex concepts, such as program
derivation, and putting them into productive use. However presentations on
anything that you suspect our audience may find interesting are welcome. The
following are some of the types of talks we would welcome:

*Library/Tool Talks* — Exploring the uses of a powerful toolkit or library, be
it for parsing, testing, data access and analysis, or anything else.

*Production Systems* — Experience reports on deploying functional techniques in
real systems; insights revealed, mistakes made, lessons learned.

*Theory made Practical* — Just because it’s locked away in papers doesn’t mean
it’s hard! Accessible lectures on classic results and why they matter to us
today. Such talks can include simply introducing the principles of a field of
research so as to help the audience read up on it in the future; from abstract
machines to program derivation to branch-and-bound algorithms, the sky’s the

see videos of talks we've had previously and get an idea of the kinds of topics
we usually feature.

We also welcome presentations for more formal tutorials. Tutorials should be
aimed at a smaller audience of beginner-to-novice understanding, and ideally
include hands-on exercises.

The due date for submissions is *April 23, 2019*. We will send out notice of
acceptance by *April 30th*. We prefer that submissions be via the EasyChair
title, and describe the topic you intend to speak on. Talks can be either 30 or
45 minutes, please indicate how much time you would prefer to take. You may
submit multiple talks if you have several ideas and are unsure which would be
the most likely to be accepted. Accepted talks will be asked to submit slides
for review prior to the conference.

Feel free to include any additional information on both your expertise and
interesting elements of your topic that would be appropriate for inclusion in
the public abstract. Furthermore, if your abstract doesn't feel "final"—don't
worry! We'll work with you to polish it up. If you want to discuss your
presentation(s) before submitting, or to further nail down what you intend to
speak on, please feel free to contact us at [hidden email] (
[hidden email] ). We're happy to work with you, even if you are a
new or inexperienced speaker, to help your talk be great.


We would like to put an emphasis on soliciting a diverse set of speakers -
anything you can do to distribute information about this CFP and encourage
submissions from under-represented groups would be greatly appreciated. We
welcome your contributions and encourage you to apply!
