Declarative languages build on sound theoretical foundations to provide attractive frameworks for application development. These languages have been successfully applied to a wide array of different real-world situations, including database management, active networks, software engineering, decision support systems, or music composition.
New developments in theory and implementation have opened up new application areas. At the same time, the application of declarative languages to novel problems raises numerous interesting research issues. Well-known questions include designing for scalability, language extensions for application deployment, and programming environments. Thus, applications often drive the progress in the theory and implementation of declarative systems, and benefit from this progress as well.
PADL is a forum for researchers and practioners to present original work emphasizing novel applications and implementation techniques for all forms of declarative concepts, including, functional, logic, constraints, etc.
Topics of interest include:
PADL 06 welcomes new ideas and approaches pertaining to applications and implementation of declarative languages, and is not limited to the scope of the first seven PADL symposia (past proceedings can be found in Springer Verlag LNCS, numbers 1551, 1753, 1990, 2257, 2562, 3057, and 3350).
In this occasion PADL is co-located, as traditionally, with ACM POPL, which will be held immediately following PADL, January 11-13.
LNCS ProceedingsInformation about the LNCS Proceedings is available online. Access to the online version of PADL'05 is also possible.
For Registration Information please visit this page. Note that early registration deadline is December 15th, 2005.
The PADL Electronic Submission Website is the location where authors should submit their paper, in postscript level 2 format or PDF.
Authors should submit an electronic copy of the full paper (written in English) in Postscript (Level 2) or PDF. Papers must be no longer than 15 pages, written in 11-point font and with single spacing. Since the final proceedings will be published as Lecture Notes in Computer Science by Springer Verlag, authors are strongly encouraged to use the LNCS paper formatting guidelines for their submission.
Each submission must include on its first page the paper title; authors and their affiliations; contact author's email and postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers, abstract, and three to four keywords. The keywords will be used to assist us in selecting appropriate reviewers for the paper. If electronic submission is impossible, please contact the program chair for information on how to submit hard copies.
Most Practical Paper Award
The Most Practical Paper award will be given to the submission that is judged by the programm committee to be the best in terms of practicality, originality, and clarity of presentation. The program committee may choose not to make an award; or may make multiple awards.
