This is Volume 7 of Trends in Functional Programming (TFP). It contains the Refereed Proceedings of TFP 2006: the Seventh Symposium on Trends in Functional Programming. TFP is an international forum for researchers with interests in all aspects of functional programming. Its goal is to provide a broad view of current and future trends in functional programming in a lively and friendly setting. Consequently, talks are accepted to the TFP symposia through submission of extended abstracts. These are screened by the Programme Committee to ensure they are within the scope of the symposium. After the symposium, the speakers are invited to submit full-length versions of their papers. These are refereed to international conference standards by the Programme Committee, and the best ones are selected for publication in the Refereed Proceedings.
TFP 2006 took place Nottingham, UK, 19–21 April, hosted by the School of Computer Science and Information Technology, the University of Nottingham. TFP 2006 was co-located with Types 2006 and the 2006 Spring School on Datatype-Generic Programming.
The TFP symposia are the successors to the Scottish Functional Programming Workshops. Prior to Nottingham, the last few TFP symposia were held in Edinburgh, Scotland in 2003, in Munich, Germany in 2004, and in Tallinn, Estonia in 2005.
