4th ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on Functional Art, Music, Modelling and Design

Call for Performances (closed)

Nara, Japan, 24 September, 2016

The ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on Functional Art, Music, Modelling and Design (FARM) gathers together people who are harnessing functional techniques in the pursuit of creativity and expression.

FARM also hosts an evening of performances, which closes ICFP 2016. For that evening, FARM 2016 is seeking proposals for live performances (audio, visual, or both) which employ functional programming techniques in whole or in part.

Push forward the state of the art!

We encourage both risk-taking proposals which push forward the state of the art and refined presentations of highly-developed practice. In either case, please support your submission with a clear description of your performance including how your performance employs functional programming and a discussion of influences and prior art as appropriate.

To propose a performance for the conference, please submit a a brief outline/programme note (100-150 words), a stable link to a single video example, possibly a stable link to one additional audio example, and a short biography (100-150 words for each contributor).


We are also accepting submissions for brief but exceptionally entertaining performances, the standard of “entertaining” being completely up to the discretion of the program committee.

Submission process

Please include a complete technical description of what is needed from the organizers for your performance, including equipment, space requirements, and internet access. Works should not exceed 20 minutes in length.

Send your submission to:

A summary of the performances will be published as part of the conference proceedings, to be prepared by the performance chair.
