Call-for-papers - David A. Turner Festschrift on his 70th Birthday

by Greg Michaelson, May 2, 2016

This special issue of the JUCS celebrates the 70th Birthday of David Turner, an inspiring scientist and person.

David Turner´s contributions to programming language design and implementation were seminal. He is best known for his pioneering work in combinator graph reduction and for designing and implementing an influential series of pure, non-strict, functional programming languages: SASL, KRC and Miranda. David invented or co-invented many of the basic techniques of lazy functional programming and his ideas and notations have passed into later languages such as Haskell.

This Festschrift volume intends to publish original papers which address any area of functional programming or of the design and implementation of functional languages.
