The "Functional Programming Group Ghent" (GhentFPG)  is a friendly group for
all people interested in functional programming, with a tendency towards Haskell.
It is organised as part of Zeus WPI .
We are pleased to announce that we will hold a next meeting on Wednesday, 26th
of June, starting at 19h00! There will be three talks.
The main presentation, by Adam Bergmark from Silk  is about Fay :
compiler with the same name written in Haskell. Web browsers only speak
Fay have compared to other compilers?
What are the challenges in compiling Haskell and supporting a language
ecosystem, and how do we do it?
What can Fay currently do, and what is planned for the future?
This will be a broad overview about Fay for prospective users, followed by
an in-depth look at interesting parts of the compiler internals.
Additionally, there will be two short talks by two students who did an Msc. Thesis
about functional programming languages:
"Genetic Algorithms in Haskell" by Matthias Delbar
"Automatic Detection of Recursion Patterns" by Jasper Van der Jeugt
The meeting will take place in the Jozef Plateauzaal at the following address,
As mentioned above, we aim to start at 19:00. After the meeting we can go
for drinks in a nearby pub (this latter part is, of course, completely optional)
We hope to see you all there!
