ICFP 2022
Sun 11 - Fri 16 September 2022 Ljubljana, Slovenia

FARM 2022 is the 10th edition of the ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop on Functional Art, Music, Modelling and Design (FARM).

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 independently.

The same information can be found on the FARM Website.

Call for Papers, Demos, and Performances

We will follow the ICFP guidelines for remote presentation. Please visit this website for updates.


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:

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library as part of the FARM 2022 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 2022 proceedings.


FARM seeks proposals for performances which employ functional programming techniques, 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.

Performance proposals should be emailed to performance@functional-art.org, and must include:

  • 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.

Notes on funding

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