Wer die Perle in Händen hält,
fragt nicht nach der Muschel.
- Peter Benary

A special issue of the Journal of Functional Programming will be devoted to Functional Pearls. The submission deadline is 31 August 2002.


Do you have a paper that is small, rounded and enjoyable to read? Please consider submitting it to the Special Issue on Functional Pearls, as we intend to string a shiny necklace. If you don't have a pearl, write one today! Papers can be on any subject connected to functional programming. A pearl is typically around 8 pages, though there is no strict page limit. The special issue also welcomes tutorial or educational papers in a broad sense.
