Functional and Declarative Programming in Education (FDPE02)
A one day workshop at PLI'02,
Monday 7 October 2002
Goal: Functional and declarative programming plays an increasingly
important role in computing education at all levels. The aim of this
workshop is to bring together educators and others who are interested in
exchanging ideas on how to use a functional or declarative programming
style in the classroom.
Topics: The workshop is intended to cover a wide spectrum of functional and
declarative programming techniques:
Furthermore, the workshop will also cover all levels of education:
- programming courses using traditional functional and declarative
programming languages (Haskell, Mathematica, ML, Prolog, Scheme, ...);
- programming courses teaching functional programming in commercial
languages (e.g. C, C++, or Common LISP);
- programming courses teaching functional program design in modern
OO languages like Java, Pizza, or GJ;
- pedagogic programming environments to support functional and declarative
- declarative programming language extensions and implementations with pedagogical
- application courses that benefit heavily from functional and
(e.g. theorem proving or hardware design).
- secondary school;
- college and university;
- post-college and continuing professional education.
The proceedings will
appear as a technical report of University of Kiel and also at the Web site for
the workshop. Attendees at the workshop will receive a copy of the
Proceedings of FDPE99, the previous workshop in this series, held in
Paris, are available
