Haskell eXchange 2022: Online Conference

Thursday, 8th - Friday, 9th December, Online Conference

Starts at 9:00 AM BST (9:00 AM UTC)

The world's most vibrant Haskell conference is back for an 11th great year!

Connect with hundreds of like-minded Haskell enthusiasts as we explore what's new and what's next in Haskell.

We're thrilled to once again welcome the global Haskell community to join the Haskell eXchange conference via our virtual conference platform, where across 2 jam-packed days, you'll discuss new technologies, meet future collaborators, and learn new skills through practical, coding-based sessions.

Or, if you're keen to get some face time with fellow Haskellers, why not make the trip to CodeNode in London, England, where you'll learn side-by-side with hundreds of other Haskell developers at our in-person conference

Plus, back by popular demand, our “Novice Track”day will offer a bonus day of beginner-friendly talks exclusively for online attendees.

Simon Peyton Jones delivers a keynote session at previous Haskell eXchange conference.

What is Haskell eXchange?

Haskell is an advanced, purely functional programming language. What began as a research language has evolved into a unique, cutting edge language that is used in industries as diverse as Aerospace, Automotive, Healthcare, Finance, Education, Retail, Logistics, SaaS, Online Retail, TV and Music.

Haskell eXchange is a community-focused conference for Haskell enthusiasts. At Haskell eXchange all of the content is selected by developersfor developers.

Past keynotes have included Simon Peyton Jones, Gabriele Keller, Niki Vazou, Stephanie Weirich, Sukant Hajra, Simon Marlow, and Gabriel Gonzalez. We'll be announcing this year's VIP keynotes a little closer to the event, so stay tuned! If you'd like to be among the first to hear about updates, register here.

Who should attend?

Last year at Haskell eXchange we welcomed 868 Haskellers from 79 countries!

As a community-focused event, it's our aim to create a Haskell conference that is welcoming to people from every corner of the Haskell world — from Industry to Academia and everything in between.

At Haskell eXchange you'll be learning side by side with Haskellers of every stripe, including the experts who maintain the language, engineers who are using Haskell in enterprise, and complete newcomers.

This highly social conference is designed to be accessible and offer something for every skill level. Whether you're working with Haskell every day, or a hobbyist experimenting with it after hours, you don't want to miss Haskell eXchange!

Program Committee

All of the talks at Haskell eXchange are selected by our volunteer Program Committee which evaluates and selects which speakers and topics will be included in the conference program. This committee includes developers, practitioners and enthusiasts of all levels.

This year's Program Committee includes:

Excited? Share it!



We're currently working on a program. If you have any suggestions, topics you'd like to see covered, or experts you'd like to meet, let us know!

Get Involved

Would you like to speak at Haskell eXchange? We want to hear your proposals!

Speaking at a conference is a powerful way to share your ideas and influence where your favourite technologies are headed. As a speaker, you will have the opportunity to share your knowledge and experience with a global audience of practitioners. We recommend that you explore the programs from previous editions of Haskell eXchange before submitting a talk proposal. Every conference is unique, and developing an understanding of our audience and previous sessions will provide your talk with the best chances of being selected.

At Haskell eXchange we're looking for talks and workshops on all things from the world of Haskell and GHC, but also topics that brush up against that world, including other programming languages, architecture, security and more.

New this year! We are looking to hear your proposals for Half-Day and Full-day Haskell workshops.

This year we are we are actively encouraging submissions on the following topics:

  • Haskell libraries and language extensions
  • Software testing
  • Tooling and tool suites
  • Security
  • Concurrency in distributed systems
  • Integration of Haskell on the browser
  • What can Haskell learn from other languages (e.g.Scala, Racket, Rust)
  • How to make the transition from learning to real-world Haskell
  • Adoption stories and real-world applications of Haskell
  • Haskell and Hardware (e.g. Bluespec, ImplicitCAD, Clash)
  • Optimization and Performance
  • Running productive Haskell teams in industry
  • Data and Machine Learning
  • Applications built using Haskell
  • Mentoring/Community
  • This year we are especially looking for introductory talks on Advanced Haskell topics. So even if you don't have something burning hot to share, you've probably got some knowledge to share about a more intermediate topic.

Submit Your Talk

Skills Matter conferences are programmed by and for our community, and we welcome submissions from around the globe.

All talks for Haskell eXchange will be selected by Skills Matter and a Programme Committee of volunteer community members. Submissions are open to anyone, and we especially encourage first-time speakers to submit a proposal.

Sessions should take one of the following formats:

  • 40‑minute talk
  • 15‑minute lightning talk
  • Half‑day workshop
  • Full‑day workshop

Proposals must be submitted to Skills Matter by 23:59 UTC on 4 September 2022 in order to be considered by the program committee.

Chosen speakers will receive two free tickets to the conference: one for the speaker and one for a guest of their choosing.

Please familiarise yourself with our Code of Conduct before submitting. You can find it here.


All Haskell eXchange sessions will be recorded.

After the conference, recordings are available to Haskell eXchange ticket holders and Skills Matter Premium Members for a period of 90 days. After this time, they will become freely available on the Skills Matter platform.

Diversity Matters Scholarship

Is it rare that you see someone at tech conferences that reminds you of yourself? Then you’re probably underrepresented at tech conferences.

At Skills Matter we are committed to supporting diversity in speakers, conference participants, and the wider technology community regardless of regardless of ability, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religious views (or lack thereof) and socio-economic status.

To increase diversity at Skills Matter events we offer scholarships to people from underrepresented groups in tech who wouldn’t otherwise be able to attend.

If you believe you are a member of a group that is underrepresented within the tech community or at technical conferences we encourage you to apply.
