The more jobs I apply for, the more I notice things about my resume that are horrible. I typically notice these things right after I've sent off the resume. That's the way it goes. At least they get noticed and fixed.

But let me assure you that in future, it's just fine for you to pull me aside and say things like, "You know, Lindsey, the words 'a variety of' add exactly no information", or "You know, Lindsey, it might be just a tiny bit of an exaggeration to refer to Class::Std as an object system."

I don't think so. The ML Workshop, PLPV, LFMTP, and the Haskell Workshop (before it got uppity and became a Symposium) are all refereed. Being refereed is correlated with reputation, so there are undoubtedly more unrefereed workshops I've never heard of than refereed workshops I've never heard of, but even so...

Oh. Yes, that implication is true.

There's no operational difference between a "good" refereed workshop and a conference, except that workshops are almost always less competitive (and thus accept all the papers I write that ICFP rejects).

If the homepage of the person you are thinking of has a picture of a woodchuck, then you are almost certainly correct.

Incidentally, the Scheme Workshop is also refereed (thankfully; our paper was much improved because of it!).
