    About PPDP

    The PPDP 2019 symposium brings together researchers from the declarative programming communities, including those working in the functional, logic, answer-set, and constraint handling programming paradigms. The goal is to stimulate research in the use of logical formalisms and methods for analyzing, performing, specifying, and reasoning about computations, including mechanisms for concurrency, security, static analysis, and verification.

    Invited Speakers

    Amal Ahmed Northeastern University, USA
    Naoki Kobayashi The University of Tokyo, Japan


    Submissions are invited on all topics related to declarative programming, from principles to practice, from foundations to applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

    - Language Design: domain-specific languages; interoperability; concurrency,
    parallelism, and distribution; modules; probabilistic languages; reactive
    languages; database languages; knowledge representation languages; languages
    with objects; language extensions for tabulation; metaprogramming.

    - Implementations: abstract machines; interpreters; compilation; compile-time
    and run-time optimization; memory management.

    - Foundations: types; logical frameworks; monads and effects; semantics.

    - Analysis and Transformation: partial evaluation; abstract interpretation;
    control flow; data flow; information flow; termination analysis; resource
    analysis; type inference and type checking; verification; validation;
    debugging; testing.

    - Tools and Applications: programming and proof environments; verification
    tools; case studies in proof assistants or interactive theorem provers;
    certification; novel applications of declarative programming inside and
    outside of CS; declarative programming pearls; practical experience reports
    and industrial application; education.

    The PC chair (Ekaterina Komendanstkaya <e.komendantskaya@hw.ac.uk>) will be happy to advise on the appropriateness of a topic.

    Submission Categories

    Submissions can be made in three categories: regular Research Papers, System Descriptions, and Experience Reports.

    Submissions of Research Papers must present original research which is unpublished and not submitted elsewhere. They must not exceed 12 pages ACM style
    2-column (including figures, but excluding bibliography). Work that already appeared in unpublished or informally published workshop proceedings may be submitted (please contact the PC chair in case of questions). Research papers will be judged on originality, significance, correctness, clarity, and readability.

    Submission of System Descriptions must describe a working system whose description has not been published or submitted elsewhere. They must not exceed 10 pages and should contain a link to a working system. System Descriptions must
    be marked as such at the time of submission and will be judged on originality, significance, usefulness, clarity, and readability.

    Submissions of Experience Reports are meant to help create a body of published, refereed, citable evidence where declarative programming such as functional, logic, answer-set, constraint programming, etc., is used in practice. They must not exceed 5 pages **including references**. Experience Reports must be marked as such at the time of submission and need not report original research results.
    They will be judged on significance, usefulness, clarity, and readability.

    Supplementary material may be provided in a clearly marked appendix beyond the above-mentioned page limits. Reviewers are not required to study any material beyond the respective page limit.

    Format of a Submission

    For each paper category, you must use the most recent version of the "Current ACM Master Template" which is available at <https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template>. The most recent version
    at the time of writing is 1.48. You must use the LaTeX sigconf proceedings template as the conference organizers are unable to process final submissions in
    other formats. In case of problems with the templates, contact ACM's TeX support
    team at Aptara <acmtexsupport@aptaracorp.com>.

    Authors should note ACM's statement on author's rights (http://authors.acm.org/)
    which apply to final papers. Submitted papers should meet the requirements of ACM's plagiarism policy (http://www.acm.org/publications/policies/plagiarism_policy).

    Requirements for Publication

    At least one author of each accepted submission will be expected to
    attend and present the work at the conference. The pc chair may retract
    a paper that is not presented. The pc chair may also retract a paper if complaints about the paper's correctness are raised which cannot be
    resolved by the final paper deadline.
