This is the official web-site for the annual Symposium on Trends in Functional Programming (TFP), formerly known as the Scottish Functional Programming Workshop (SFP). TFP is dedicated to promoting new research directions related to the field of functional programming and to investigate the relationships of functional programming with other branches of computer science. It is designed to be a platform for novel and upcoming research, combined with a post-event refereeing process and a formal publication of selected papers as a book. In particular we encourage young researchers to present their work at TFP. In recognition of the extra effort spent in giving polished presentations the programme committee of TFP each year gives out a Best Student Paper award. To learn more about structure, history and directions of the series, see the on-line constitution of TFP, or check out the sections below. In particular, information on individual workshops/symposia can be found here.
A review of volumes 1 and 2 of the TFP proceedings can be found in the 2003 issue of the JFP 13(4):823-824. More information on the TFP proceedings, published as books by Intellect, is also available.
From TFP10 (LNCS 6546) and TFP11 (LNCS 7193) onwards, the proceedings of TFP will be published in Springer's LNCS series.
Special issues of HOSC and COMLAN have published revised, best papers from TFP instances, most recently COMLAN: Computer Languages, Systems & Structures, Vol. 44 , Part B 2015.
Next TFP: The next instance of Trends in Functional Programming (TFP24) will be held at Seton Hall University, South Orange, NJ, USA, 9-12 January 2024. PC Chair: Jason Hemann.
The proceedings of TFP will be published in Springer's LNCS series. Proceedings of previous instances have been published as LNCS 9547 (TFP15), LNCS 8843 (TFP14), LNCS 8322 (TFP13), LNCS 7829 (TFP12), LNCS 7193 (TFP11) and LNCS 6546 (TFP10).

Starting with TFP10, proceedings are published by Springer and indexed via the Springer Link pages. Prior to that, proceedings have been published by Intellect. Bibliographic detail of the entire SFP/TFP series is available from this DBLP page.
Lists of all papers in past GlaFP/SFP/TFP Symposia are available here:
Here is a list of links to previous SFP/TFP Symposia and Workshops:
The primary conference for researchers in functional programming, a successor to the conferences on Lisp and Functional Programming and on Functional Programming and Computer Architecture, alternating between Europe and the US, and with a number of attached workshops. Please follow this link to the ICFP home.
This independent workshop covers a wider ground than its title suggests, being also concerned with applications and some theory. It is geographically located in Europe with an international audience, and publishes in the Springer Verlag LNCS series. Please follow this link to the IFL home.
