I am pleased to announce the release of GlSurf 3.3, the first to be in opam: GlSurf, implicit curves and surfaces drawing and discretization GlSurf is a program (similar to Surf) to draw surfaces and curves from their implicit equations (that is drawing the set of points (x,y,z) such that f(x,y,z) = 0). It offers an intuitive and simple syntax to construct your functions, it can draw multiple surfaces simultaneously and it can use all the power of OpenGl to animate the surface, use transparency, etc ... http://www.lama.univ-savoie.fr/~raffalli/glsurf.html For OS X user: - Opam test told me that it compiles under OS X, but I could not test the produced binary. So I would be happy if you can report failure or success on OS X For Windows user: - It should be possible to compile under windows ... with adaptation of Makefile.config ... I would be gratefull if someone could send me the adapted version. Remark: I tried to cross compile for windows and failed because of omake which is a dependency of camlimages.

OCAML 2016 The OCaml Users and Developers Workshop http://ocaml.org/meetings/ocaml/2016/ Nara Kasugano International Forum, Nara, Japan 23rd September 2016 CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS Co-located with ICFP 2016 Sponsored by SIGPLAN Talk proposal submission deadline: 10th June 2016 (Please redistribute widely.) The OCaml Users and Developers Workshop brings together industrial users of OCaml with academics and hackers who are working on extending the language, type system and tools. Previous editions have been colocated with ICFP 2012 in Copenhagen, ICFP 2013 in Boston, ICFP 2014 in Gothenburg and ICFP 2015 in Vancouver, following the OCaml Meetings in Paris in 2010 and 2011. OCaml 2016 will be held on 23rd September 2016 in Nara, Japan, colocated with ICFP 2016. SCOPE Discussions 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 and of its programming environment, including, for example: - compiler developments, new backends, runtime and architectures - practical type system improvements, such as (but not limited to) GADTs, first-class modules, generic programming, or dependent types - new library or application releases, and their design rationales - tools and infrastructure services, and their enhancements - prominent industrial uses of OCaml, or deployments in unusual situations. SUBMISSION It will be an informal meeting, with an online scribe report of the meeting, but no formal proceedings. Slides of presentations will be available online from the workshop homepage. The presentations will likely be recorded, and made available at a later time. To submit a talk, please register a description of the talk (about 2 pages long) at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=oud2016, providing a clear statement of what will be provided by the talk: the problems that are addressed, the technical solutions or methods that are proposed. If you wish to perform a demo or require any special setup, we will do our best to accommodate you. SCHEDULE Friday 10th June 2016 (any time zone): Talk proposal submission deadline Monday 18th July 2016: Author notification Friday 23rd September 2016: OCaml workshop ML FAMILY WORKSHOP AND POST-PROCEEDINGS The ML family workshop, held on the previous day, deals with general issues of the ML-style programming and type systems, and is seen as more research- oriented. Yet there is an overlap with the OCaml workshop, which we are keen to explore, for instance by having a common session. The authors who feel their submission fits both workshops are encouraged to mention it at submission time and/or contact the Program Chairs. There may be a combined post-conference proceedings of selected papers from the two workshops.
