Clifton Suspension Bridge!

Clifton Suspension Bridge, Bristol, United Kingdom


Welcome

Welcome to the website for IFL 2017, the 29th Symposium on Implementation and Application of Functional Languages. The goal of the IFL symposia is to bring together researchers actively engaged in the implementation and application of functional and function-based programming languages. IFL 2017 will be a venue for researchers to present and discuss new ideas and concepts, work in progress, and publication-ripe results related to the implementation and application of functional languages and function-based programming.


News

  • The important dates and registration details have been confirmed.
  • The skeleton of the website has been updated, we will continue to update the site as more details are confirmed. Note that IFL immediately precedes ICFP which is located in Oxford this year. We are investigating arranging convenient transport from Bristol to Oxford for those interested in attending both events.

Venue

The 29th IFL is organized by the Theory and Algorithms Groups of the University of Bristol. The event will be held in Engineer's House which is situated in north Bristol within walking distance of Clifton Suspension Bridge.

The main train station is Bristol Temple Meads.

Getting To The Venue

The venue is within the city and connected by public transport. The number 8 bus directly connects the train station and the venue whilst the 9 stops a short way away.
