The 2005 Scheme Workshop provides a forum for discussing experience
with and future development of the Scheme programming language. The
scope of the workshop includes all aspects of the design,
implementation, theory, and application of Scheme. Past workshops have
been held in Snowbird (2004), Boston (2003), Pittsburgh (2002), Florence
(2001), and Montrl (2000). We encourage everyone interested in
Scheme to participate.


We invite submissions in the following categories:

Technical papers

Papers on all technical aspects of the Scheme programming language,
including language design, implementation, theory, and tools.

Practice and experience

Papers about using Scheme for practical applications and large

Proposals for language changes, extensions and libraries

Papers containing proposals for changes in the language, language
extensions, and libraries, including SRFIs past, present and future.
Where applicable, the content of such a paper should be submitted as
a SRFI draft, if that isn't already the case.

Scheme pearls

Papers about elegant, instructive or surprising Scheme programs.


Papers about uses of Scheme in all aspects of education.

System demonstrations

Proposals for demonstrations of Scheme systems or applications
written in Scheme.
