TitleHaskell vs. F# vs. Scala: High-level Language Features and Parallelism Support

* Update: here are the slides from the talk: *

We will outline a recent study that provides a performance and programmability comparison of parallel programming support in Haskell, F# and Scala. Emphasis is given on advanced language features such as purity, evaluation order, and integration of functional aspects into imperative and object-oriented languages. The expressive power of each language is analysed, especially regarding their support for parallelism. We quantify parallel performance and assess succinctness and modularity of the code.
