Scala Days 2011  was a throughly enjoyable and successful event. Over 280 academic researchers and professional developers got together to share advanced research results, new ideas and explore some heavy duty commercial Scala applications. Scala Days provides a unique opportunity for researchers and commercial Scala users to transfer leading edge research into production systems or share practical know-how on how to get things done more effectively. A place to meet the leading experts from both communities.
This is a Call for Papers  for the research workshop. We seek research papers on topics related to Scala, including (but not limited to): language design and implementation, library design and implementation patterns, formal techniques for Scala-like programs, parallel, concurrent and distributed programming, safety and reliability, tools, and case studies. Please see the CFP  for the submission schedule and further details.
As before, Scala Days 2012 will combine an academic research workshop with commercial developer talks and will be held, with Martin and the EPFL Scala team, at the Barbican Conference Centre , London, UK, on Tuesday 17 and Wednesday 18 April 2012. The dedicated Scala Days 2012 site will be available mid-December and there you will be able to check out the details and register for the event.
Scala is a general-purpose programming language designed to express common programming patterns in a concise, elegant, and type-safe way. It smoothly integrates features of object-oriented and functional programming.
This workshop is a forum for researchers and practitioners to share new ideas and results of interest to the Scala community. The third annual Scala research workshop will be held on Tuesday April 17th 2012 at the Barbican in London, co-located with Scala Days 2012.
We seek papers on topics related to Scala, including (but not limited to):
|Submission:||Jan 16, 2012 (Monday at noon, CET)|
|Notification:||Feb 20, 2012|
|Final revision:||Mar 16, 2012|
|Workshop:||April 17, 2012|
Submitted papers should describe new ideas, experimental results, or projects related to Scala. In order to encourage lively discussion, submitted papers may describe work in progress. All papers will be judged on a combination of correctness, significance, novelty, clarity, and interest to the community.
Submissions must be in English and at most 12 pages total length (shorter papers are welcome). Please use the standard ACM SIGPLAN two-column conference  format (10pt), and submit through the EasyChair website .
