TACLe Project: TACLe January 2015 Meeting in Amsterdam, January 22-23, 2015


== TACLe January 2015 Meeting in Amsterdam, January 22-23, 2015 ==

Location: Universiteit van Amsterdam
          Universiteitsbibliotheek (University Library)
          Room C0.07 (Doelenzaal)
          Singel 425
          1012 WP Amsterdam
          The Netherlands

Approximate times for the meeting (a more detailed programme will be
sent out later):

Jan. 22nd:  9:00-18:00 regular meeting
           18:30-19:30 canal tour (depending on interest)
Jan. 23rd:  9:00-15:00 regular meeting
           15:00-17:00 management committee meeting

How to get there:
Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is one of the largest air traffic hubs in Europe
and thus very well connected. Trains depart from Schiphol to Amsterdam Centraal
every few minutes, cost around 4 Euro (one-way) and take about 20 minutes. From
Amsterdam central station to the venue, take Tram [1,2,5] and leave at
Koningsplein, or walk around 20 minutes. From the southern parts of Amsterdam
including the HiPEAC conference venue area you may also take Tram [4,9,16,24]
and leave at Muntplein.

Hotel information:
The range of hotels in easy walking distance from the TACLe meeting venue is in
the hundreds, yet finding a good and reasonably priced place to stay is not so
easy. As a rule of thumb, avoid hotels in the red light district. Most of them
are pretty shabby and the neighbourhood tends to be very noisy at night. Also
be aware that many 3-star hotels in Amsterdam offer basic/economy/budget rooms
without private bath room. However, the time of the year certainly plays in our
favour and very attractive deals with good hotels in prime locations at reasonable
rates may well be possible.
Please note that the HiPEAC conference venue, and thus the majority of the
recommended hotels, is in a different part of town outside the historic center.

4th International workshop on


London, U.K., April 11, 2015 (co-located with DICE (April 12, 2015)

A satellite event of ETAPS. http://fopara.cs.ru.nl/

FOPARA2015 is supported by ICT COST Action IC1202 Timing Analysis on Code-Level (TACLe).



Paper submission via easychair: January 23, 2015

Notification of acceptance: February 10, 2015

Informal pre-proceedings version due: March 2nd, 2015

Submission for formal peer-reviewed post proceedings: May 29, 2015

Notification (Paper): July 10, 2015

Camera Ready: September 4, 2015



The FOPARA workshop serves as a forum for presenting original research results that are relevant to the analysis of resource (e.g. time, space, energy) consumption by computer programs. The workshop aims to bring together the researchers that work on foundational issues with the researchers that focus more on practical results. Therefore, both theoretical and practical contributions are encouraged. We also encourage papers that combine theory and practice. The following list of topics is non-exhaustive:

- resource static analysis for embedded or/and critical systems;

- logical and machine-independent characterisations of complexity classes;

- logics closely related to complexity classes;

- type systems for controlling/inferring/checking complexity;

- semantic methods to analyse resources, including quasi-interpretations;

- practical applications of resource analysis;

- complexity analysis by term and graph rewriting.

FOPARA is organised as a bi-annual event. The first edition of the FOPARA workshop has been held in 2009 as part of Formal Methods (FM2009) at the Technical University Eindhoven, NL. The second edition was co-located with Trends in Functional Programming (TFP2011) at Complutense University in Madrd. The third FOPARA workshop was co-located with WST 2013, the 13th International Workshop on Termination, at the Bertinoro international Center for informatics in Italy:

8 Funded PhD Positions at St Andrews


Eight funded research scholarships available under the University of St Andrews Seventh Century scheme.
These are open to students from any country, and pay fees as well as maintenance.  The deadline for applications is March
31st 2014, but it's good to apply earlier.

We have an active group of about ten academic academics, postdoctoral research fellows and postgraduate students
working on a variety of topics.  We'd welcome applicants who are interested in any aspect of functional programming
and related areas, including:

Parallel Functional programming; Heterogeneous multicores (including CPU/GPU combinations); Refactoring; Patterns of computation;
Machine-Learning; Compilation; Real-time functional programming (e.g. in Hume); Semantics of Programming Languages;
Functional cloud computing;  Functional Programming and Security; Dependent Types; Effects and other extra-functional properties;
Relaxed memory consistency; Multicore programming; Formal concurrency models; Concurrency verification; Application of functional ideas to other paradigms,
including C and C++.  We work with various functional languages including Haskell, Erlang, idris, OCAML, Hume and F#. 

We have excellent links with both academic and industry, and are coordinating the EU Framework 7 ParaPhrase project,
which involves 13 partners from 8 European countries: http://www.paraphrase-ict.eu
