      Early registration deadline is TODAY. Please note this year CUFP features
      Introductory Tutorials, targeted at those new to functional programming. Be
      sure to refer your colleagues who have been looking for a way to get
      started with FP. The usual half-day tutorials are also being held, and this
      list will especially be interested in Real-World OCaml.

      CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
      Copenhagen, Denmark
      Sep 13-15
      Co-located with ICFP 2012
      Sponsored by SIGPLAN

      Functional programming has been at the forefront of a new generation
      of programming technologies: Companies employing functional
      programming use it to enable more effective, robust, and flexible
      software development.

      The annual CUFP workshop is designed to serve the growing
      community of commercial users of functional programming: Practitioners
      meet and collaborate; language designers and users can share ideas
      about the future of their languages; experts share their expertise on
      practical functional programming.

      CUFP 2012 features introductory tutorials by top-notch language
      experts; advanced tutorials on special topics, and the final day of
      talks about industrial applications of functional programming.

      More information about CUFP 2012 is available on the CUFP web site at

      http://cufp.org/

      Registration is via the ICFP 2012 web site at:
