Workshop Date


The OCaml Users and Developers Workshop will bring together industrial users of OCaml with academics and hackers who are working on extending the language, type system and tools. Discussion will focus on the practical aspects of OCaml programming and the nitty gritty of the tool-chain and upcoming improvements and changes. Thus, we aim to solicit talks on all aspects related to improving the use or development of the language, including, for example:

  • compiler developments; new backends, runtime and architectures.

  • practical type system improvements, such as (but not exhaustively) GADTs, first-class modules, generic programming, or dependent types.

  • new library or application releases, and their design rationales.

  • tool enhancements by commercial consultants.

  • prominent industrial uses of OCaml, or deployments in unusual situations.

It will be an informal meeting, with an online scribe report of the meeting, but no formal proceedings for this year. Slides of presentations will be available online from the workshop homepage.
