First subject: Jocaml3

Jocaml is an extension of Ocaml based on the Join-calculus,
see There are already two releases of the
Join-calculus and Jocaml. A third version, simplified and better
integrated to the Ocaml compiler, is under development. It remains to
implement remote communication in distributed settings, which
represents a good third of the whole Jocaml implementation. As a final
result, we want to get a release of Jocaml, accessible on the web and
compatible with successive releases of Ocaml.


Second subject: Pattern Matching Warnings for Haskell

Since Ocaml 1.05, Ocaml features an efficient
and complete detection algorithm for pattern-matching anomalies such
as useless match clauses and non-exhautive matchings. The
corresponding theory is described in It also handles
disjunctive patterns, without exponential explosion in practice.

The post-doctorant will implement the detection algorithm in, for
instance, GHC. She or he will demonstrate and document the work in
order to make it available in a standard Haskell release.
