    Call for Papers

    18th International Symposium on
    Practical Aspects of Declarative Languages (PADL 2016)


    St. Petersburg, Florida, United States
    Mon 18 - Tue 19 January 2016
    Co-located with ACM POPL 2016

    Conference Description

    Declarative languages build on sound theoretical bases to provide
    attractive frameworks for application development. These languages
    have been successfully applied to many different real-world
    situations, ranging from data base management to active networks to
    software engineering to decision support systems.

    New developments in theory and implementation have opened up new
    application areas. At the same time, applications of declarative
    languages to novel problems raise numerous interesting research
    issues. Well-known questions include designing for scalability,
    language extensions for application deployment, and programming
    environments. Thus, applications 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 practitioners 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, but
    are not limited to:

    * Innovative applications of declarative languages
    * Declarative domain-specific languages and applications
    * Practical applications of theoretical results
    * New language developments and their impact on applications
    * Declarative languages and software engineering
    * Evaluation of implementation techniques on practical applications
    * Practical experiences and industrial applications
    * Novel uses of declarative languages in the classroom
    * Practical extensions such as constraint-based, probabilistic, and
    reactive languages.

    PADL 2016 welcomes new ideas and approaches pertaining to
    applications and implementation of declarative languages. PADL 2016 will
    be co-located with the Symposium on Principles of Programming Languages
    (POPL 2016), in St. Petersburg, Florida (USA).

    Important Dates and Submission Guidelines

    Abstract Submission: September 10, 2015
    Paper Submission: September 18, 2015
    Notification: October 21, 2015
    Camera-ready: November 10, 2015
    Symposium: January 18-19, 2016

    Authors should submit an electronic copy of the full paper in PDF
    using the Springer LNCS format. The submission will be done through
    EasyChair conference system:


    All submissions must be original work written in English. Submissions
    must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Work
    that already appeared in unpublished or informally published workshops proceedings may be submitted but the authors should notify the program
    chair about the place on which it has previously appeared.

    PADL 2016 will accept both technical and application papers:

    * Technical papers must describe original, previously unpublished
    research results. Technical papers must not exceed 15 pages (plus
    one page of references) in Springer LNCS format.
    * Application papers are a mechanism to present important practical
    applications of declarative languages that occur in industry or
    in areas of research other than Computer Science.
    Application papers are expected to describe complex and/or
    real-world applications that rely on an innovative use of
    declarative languages. Application descriptions, engineering
    solutions and real-world experiences (both positive and negative)
    are solicited. The limit for application papers is 8 pages in
    Springer LNCS format but such papers can also point to sites with
    supplemental information about the application or the system that
    they describe.

    The proceedings of PADL 2016 will appear in the LNCS series of Springer

    Up to two best papers accepted for publication at PADL'16 will be
    invited to submit an extended version to the journal
    "Theory and Practice of Logic Programming" for rapid publication.
    The extended version should contain at least 30% new content compared
    to the published conference paper.
    In the case of rapid publications the extra material should consist
    of extensions of the existing material, such as proofs, further
    experimental results, implementation details and such like.
    Papers containing substantial revision and new results compared to
    the conference paper should be submitted as regular articles as
    normal. Authors invited to submit a rapid publication should confirm
    that such extra material is available.
