The 4th International Workshop on Trends in Functional Programming in Education, TFPIE 2015, will be co-located with the Symposium on Trends in Functional Programming (TFP 2015) in Sophia-Antipolis in France in June 2015. TFP takes place from June 3 - 5.


The goal of TFPIE is to gather researchers, teachers and professionals that use, or are interested in the use of, functional programming in education. TFPIE aims to be a venue where novel ideas, classroom-tested ideas and work-in-progress on the use of functional programming in education are discussed. The one-day workshop will foster a spirit of open discussion by having a review process for publication after the workshop. The program chair of TFPIE 2015 will screen submissions to ensure that all presentations are within scope and are of interest to participants. Potential presenters are invited to submit an extended abstract (4-6 pages) or a draft paper (up to 16 pages) in EPTCS style. The authors of accepted presentations will have their preprints and their slides made available on the workshop's website/wiki. Visitors to the TFPIE 2015 website/wiki will be able to add comments. This includes presenters who may respond to comments and questions as well as provide pointers to improvements and follow-up work. After the workshop, presenters will be invited to submit (a revised version of) their article for review. The PC will select the best articles for publication in the journal Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS). Articles rejected for presentation and extended abstracts will not be formally reviewed by the PC.

TFPIE workshops have previously been held in St Andrews, Scotland (2012), Provo Utah, USA (2013), and Soesterberg, The Netherlands (2014).

Submission Guidelines

TFPIE 2015 welcomes submissions describing techniques used in the classroom, tools used in and/or developed for the classroom and any creative use of functional programming (FP) to aid education in or outside Computer Science. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

FP and beginning CS students FP and Computational Thinking FP and Artificial Intelligence FP in Robotics FP and Music Advanced FP for undergraduates FP in graduate education Engaging students in research using FP FP in Programming Languages FP in the high school curriculum FP as a stepping stone to other CS topics FP and Philosophy Best Lectures

In addition to papers, this year we are requesting “best lecture” presentations. What’s your best lecture topic in an FP related course? Do you have a fun way to present FP concepts to novices or perhaps an especially interesting presentation of a difficult topic? In either case, please consider sharing it. Best lecture topics will be selected for presentation based on a short abstract describing the lecture and its interest to TFPIE attendees.

Papers and abstracts can be submitted via easychair at the following link:

It is expected at at least one author for each submitted paper will attend the workshop.
