08.30 Registration.
Applications Session.

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 project itself.
10.00 MPowered by Erlang. Per Bergqvist, CellPoint. 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.
10.30 Refreshments.
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 testing task.
Implementations Session.

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 www.csd.uu.se/projects/hipe/osh.
In Proceedings of ACM SIGPLAN. International Conference of Principles and Practices of Declarative Programming.
12.00 ECOMP - an Erlang Processor. Robert Tjärnström and Peter Lundell, Ericsson Telecom. 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.
12.30 Lunch.
