Goals of this Dagstuhl Seminar

The seminar emphasized four issues:

  • static program analysis
  • extensions for programmer control of parallelism
  • o functional+logic languages and constrain
  • implementation of functional languages

There were two formal discussion sessions, which addressed the problems of input/output in functional languages, and the utility of static program analysis.

It is gratifying that the first Dagstuhl seminar in this area (Functional Languages: Optimization for Parallelism) had stimulated many developments which were reported at this one.

A particular feature of this seminar was the large number of prototypes which were demonstrated and which vividly illustrated the issues raised in discussions and presentations.


In the series Dagstuhl Reports each Dagstuhl Seminar and Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshop is documented. The seminar organizers, in cooperation with the collector, prepare a report that includes contributions from the participants' talks together with a summary of the seminar.
