23rd August, 2019, co-located with ICFP 2019 in Berlin, Germany
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.
Functional Programming has emerged as a mainstream software development paradigm, and its artistic and creative use is booming. A growing number of software toolkits, frameworks and environments for art, music and design now employ functional programming languages and techniques. FARM is a forum for exploration and critical evaluation of these developments, for example to consider potential benefits of greater consistency, tersity, and closer mapping to a problem domain.
FARM encourages submissions from across art, craft and design, including textiles, visual art, music, 3D sculpture, animation, GUIs, video games, 3D printing and architectural models, choreography, poetry, and even VLSI layouts, GPU configurations, or mechanical engineering designs. Theoretical foundations, language design, implementation issues, and applications in industry or the arts are all within the scope of the workshop. The language used need not be purely functional (“mostly functional” is fine), and may be manifested as a domain specific language or tool. Moreover, submissions focusing on questions or issues about the use of functional programming are within the scope.
Registration for FARM 2019 has closed. You could previously register for the FARM workshop through the ICFP registration page.
At least one author of each accepted submission must register and present their paper at the workshop.
The schedule can also be found on the ICFP conference website.

An evening of strange and wonderful music and audio/visual work made from computer code. Featuring an international line-up of artists, including groundbreaking livecoders who work directly with the innards of software, writing and manipulating code while a computer runs it, projecting their screens so you can see the code behind the performance.
Performances will include: interactive generated jazz, a co-performance with harmonica and melodica, three duets, a sitar-computer co-performance, audio-visual animations, and a hybrid electric-acoustic violin.
