prior to the first day of your conference. The official publication date
affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.

Call for Papers

The ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on Functional Art, Music,
Modelling and Design (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.

In addition to the main workshop, FARM hosts a traditional evening of
performances. Thus, this call encompasses both papers/demos for the
workshop (and its published proceedings) as well as performance
proposals for the evening's event. Authors are invited to make a
single submission for each. Authors may submit both a paper/demo and
performance proposal, but the submissions will be considered

Note on Finances

Paid registration to the FARM workshop is usually required for paper
and demo submitters, but will be waived for performers.

If you would have financial difficulty attending, you can apply for
conference “PAC” funds. Please get in touch for more information.


Paper submissions are invited in three categories:

- Original research
- Overview / state of the art
- Technology tutorial (especially tools and environments for distributed artistic workflow)

Papers must be submitted via HotCRP (
and meet the following requirements:

- 5 to 12 pages
- PDF format
- Adhere to the ACM SIGPLAN template

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library as part
of the FARM 2024 proceedings.

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.


Demo submissions should describe a demonstration and its context,
connecting it with the themes of FARM. A demo could be in the form of
a short (10 to 20 minute) tutorial, a presentation of work in
progress, an exhibition of some work, or even a performance.

Demos must be submitted via HotCRP (
and meet the following requirements:

- 500 to 2000 words
- Have a title starting with “Demo: ”
- PDF format
- Adhere to the ACM SIGPLAN template (

Accepted demos will be published in the ACM Digital Library as part of
the FARM 2024 proceedings.


FARM seeks proposals for performances which employ programming
techniques (or are generated by programs), in whole or in part. We
invite a diverse range of functionally-themed submissions including
music, video, dance, and performance art. Both live performances and
fixed-media submissions are welcome. We encourage risk-taking
proposals that push forward the state of the art as well as refined
presentations of highly developed practice. In either case, please
support your submission with a clear description of your performance,
including how your performance employs functional programming and a
discussion of influences and prior art as appropriate. If desired, you
may use some of your performance time for a short lecture or
presentation; this must supplement, and not take the place of, a
primary performance.

Performance proposals should be emailed to or submitted via HotCRP, and must

- A description of the performance (please be as specific as possible)
- An explanation of the use of functional programming in the work
- A list of technical requirements
- A link to an audio or video example (YouTube, Vimeo, Bandcamp, etc.)

Accepted performances will be presented at the performance evening.
