09.00 Use of Erlang/OTP as a Service
Creation Tool for IN Services.
Sean Hinde, one2one, UK.
Intelligent Networking requires large
databases with high performance, soft real time access, very high
availability, ease of management, and minimum customisation. This
talk describes the experiences of a GSM mobile operator in using
Erlang/OTP as a service creation tool for Number Translation, VPN,
Mini Pre-pay, and authentication services.
09.30 Sendmail Meets Erlang: Experiences
Using Erlang for Email Applications.
Scott Lystig Fritchie, Sendmail Inc, USA.
Our experience developing a prototype of a bulk
I/O daemon, based on ONC RPC both as a server and as a client,
suggested a long and difficult development cycle. Erlang lived
up to its promise to make the task easier, despite the learning
curve, skeptical management, and the challenging nature of the
10.00 MPowered by Erlang.

Finder! offers multiple interfaces to
the end-user, while providing a uniform look and feel for the
service that is easy to use. The user is always in full control
of their privacy. Finder! supports standard GSM phones and WAP
phones, and can also be accessed via the Internet, providing
for mass-market services today and in the future.
11.00 NETSim - Six Years with Erlang.
Bengt Tillman, Ericsson Radio.
Ericsson develops many different applications for the
controlling and configuring of telecommunication networks. Alarm
handling and the generation of statistics files are two such
applications which have to be tested on very large networks
(hundreds of AXE exchanges). This talk explains how Erlang has
been used in order to make a simulator which solves this huge
11.30 A High Performance Erlang System.
Mikael Pettersson, Uppsala University.
HiPE (High Performance Erlang) is an
optimising native code compiler for Erlang under development at
Uppsala University. The compiler offers selective compilation and
produces significant speedups over emulated code. This talk will
describe the architecture and main features of the HiPE system.
HiPE is available open source at

Conference of Principles and Practices of Declarative
12.00 ECOMP - an Erlang Processor.
Robert Tjärnström and Peter Lundell,
An Erlang processor has been built in an FPGA (i.e.
programmable hardware). The JAM compiler has been changed
to generate native code which allows Erlang programs to be run
directly on the processor without any OS and with improved
performance. Furthermore, results from experiments with
call control software will be presented.
