I don't know anything about FARM but I am intrigued.

May be of interest here too.


5th ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on Functional Art, Music,
Modelling and Design
Oxford, UK, September, 9th 2017

Submission deadline June 1, 2017

Call for Papers and Demos:

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 2017, the 22nd ACM SIGPLAN International
Conference on Functional Programming.

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.

FARM 2017 website : http://functional-art.org/2017/


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 use the ACM
SIGPLAN template. [ http://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Author/ ]

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library as part
of the FARM 2017 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
restricted to:

- 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.

Submission is via EasyChair


Authors take note

The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made
available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks
prior to the first day of your conference. The official publication
date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published


If you have any questions about what type of contributions that might
be suitable, or anything else regarding submission or the workshop
itself, please contact the organisers at:

farm-2017 at functional-art.org

All presentations at FARM 2017 will be recorded. Permission to publish
the resulting video (in all probability on YouTube, along with the
videos of ICFP itself and the other ICFP-colocated events) will be
requested on-site.
