Because of the covid pandemic, the events are online this year.
The goal of the International Workshops on Trends in Functional
Education is to gather researchers, professors, teachers, and all
that use or are interested in the use of functional programming in
TFPIE aims to be a venue where novel ideas, classroom-tested ideas, and
progress on the use of functional programming in education are
one-day workshop will foster a spirit of open discussion by having a review
process for publication after the workshop.
TFPIE 2021 welcomes submissions in the above mentioned areas. This year
teaching programmes have had to make a rapid transition to online
we explicitly solicit papers that explore this area of teaching functional

- Best Lectures - more details below
In addition to papers, we are requesting best lecture presentations.
best lecture topic in an FP related course? Do you have a fun way to
concepts to novices or perhaps an especially interesting presentation of a
difficult topic? In either case, please consider sharing it. Best
will be selected for presentation based on a short abstract describing the
lecture and its interest to TFPIE attendees. The length of the presentation
should be comparable to that of a paper. On top of the lecture itself,
the presentation can also provide commentary on the lecture.
Potential presenters are invited to submit an extended abstract (4-6
pages) or a
draft paper (up to 20 pages) in EPTCS style. The authors of accepted
presentations will have their preprints and their slides made available
workshop's website. Papers and abstracts can be submitted via easychair
After the workshop, presenters are invited to submit (a revised version of)
their article for review. The PC will select the best articles for
in the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS).
Articles rejected for presentation and extended abstracts will not be
reviewed by the PC.
