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. It
is co-located with ICFP 2018, the 23rd ACM SIGPLAN International
Conference on Functional Programming, and with Strange Loop, in
St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
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.

Call for Performances
Submission deadline: July 8, 2018.
Submission URL: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=farm2018 .
FARM also hosts a traditional evening of performances. For this year’s
event, FARM 2018 is seeking proposals for live performances which
employ functional programming techniques, in whole or in part. We
would like to support a diverse range of performing arts, including
music, dance, video animation, and performance 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
Call for Papers and Demos
Submission deadline: June 28, 2018 (note that this is earlier than for
Submission URL: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=farm2018 .
We welcome submissions from academic, professional, and independent
programmers and artists.
Submissions are invited in three categories:
1) Original papers
We solicit original papers in the following categories:
- Original research
- Overview / state of the art
- Technology tutorial
All submissions must propose an original contribution to the FARM
theme. FARM is an interdisciplinary conference, so a wide range of
approaches are encouraged.
An original paper should have 5 to 12 pages, be in portable document
format (PDF), using the ACM SIGPLAN style guidelines and the ACM
SIGPLAN template. [ http://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Author/ -- use
the 'sigplan' sub-format. ]
Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library as part
of the FARM 2018 proceedings. See http://authors.acm.org/main.cfm for
information on the options available to authors. Authors are
encouraged to submit auxiliary material for publication along with
their paper (source code, data, videos, images, etc.); authors retain
all rights to the auxiliary material.
2) Demo proposals
Demo proposals should describe a demonstration to be given at the FARM
workshop and its context, connecting it with the themes of FARM. A
demo could be in the form of a short (10-20 minute) tutorial,
presentation of work-in-progress, an exhibition of some work, or even
a performance. Demo proposals should be in plain text, HTML or
Markdown format, and not exceed 2000 words. A demo proposal should be
clearly marked as such, by prepending Demo Proposal: to the title.
Demo proposals will be published on the FARM website. A summary of the
demo performances will also be published as part of the conference
proceedings, to be prepared by the program chair.
3) Calls for collaboration
Calls for collaboration should describe a need for technology or
expertise related to the FARM theme. Examples may include but are not
- art projects in need of realization
- existing software or hardware that may benefit from functional programming
- unfinished projects in need of inspiration
Calls for collaboration should be in plain text, HTML or Markdown
format, and not exceed 5000 words. A call for collaboration should be
clearly marked as such, by prepending Call for Collaboration: to the
Calls for collaboration will be published on the FARM website.

As part of the New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME 2018) conference, we would like to invite you to the “Re-engaging the Body and Gesture in Musical Live Coding” workshop. This half-day workshop will take place Sunday, June 3, at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia.
The goal of this workshop is to explore the multifaceted relationships between live coding, gesture, and embodiment in musical performance. In particular, we seek to critically assess the current state of affairs as pertains to live coding and gesturality, and further propose and evaluate new ideas for synthesizing the two. We will offer an opportunity for participants to compare experiences, reflect on their own work, and discuss ways to impart gestural and embodied interactions in musical live coding.
Further context on these ideas can be found in the workshop paper at: https://embodiedlivecoding.github.io/nime2018-workshop/workshop-paper.html
The workshop will emphasize both an open discussion and a hands-on prototyping activity. During the latter, participants will propose and mock up forward-thinking systems for gestural live coding, using either software or provided physical materials. Despite the subject matter, programming ability is not a prerequisite, and the organizers encourage participation from individuals of diverse creative and technical backgrounds.
The workshop is open to conference attendees but attendance may be limited based on the amount of available hardware. No preparation is required to attend, but if you are planning to attend, we would encourage you to contact Spencer Salazar (ssalazar(a)calarts.edu) or Jack Armitage (j.d.k.armitage(a)qmul.ac.uk) so we can ensure that adequate materials are available.
We look forward to meeting you in Blacksburg.
