Continuation Fest 2008
April 13, 2008
Continuations are used, and constantly re-discovered, in web
programming, logic, event-based concurrency, linguistics, transactional
systems, optimization, program generation and verification. Programming
language systems -- including Scheme, OCaml, Ruby, Python, Haskell,
Coq -- are (re-)implementing continuations, generators, iterators and
related control structures. Continuations are also being studied for
their own sake.
We call for an informal gathering of people working in all these
areas as well as meet each other and strengthen the community.
