The 11th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming
(ICFP 2006)

Portland, Oregon,
September 18-20, 2006

ICFP 2006 provides a forum for researchers and developers to hear about the latest work on the design, implementations, principles, and uses of functional programming. The conference covers the entire spectrum of work, from practice to theory, including its peripheries.

The conference is over and was wildly successful. We had record attendance for the main conference and many of the workshops. We hope to see everyone again in Freiburg next year!
