Rebecca Skinner will be presenting on "Tackling the Awkward Squad:monadic input/output, concurrency, exceptions, and foreign-language calls in Haskell (" by Simon Peyton Jones of Microsoft Research.

From the abstract: "Functional programming may be beautiful, but to write real applications we must grapple with awkward real-world issues: input/output, robustness, concurrency, and interfacing to programs written in other languages."
