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, web applications, decision support systems, and 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 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:
PADL'10 welcomes new ideas and approaches pertaining to applications and implementation of declarative languages, and is not limited to the scope of the past eleven PADL symposia (past proceedings can be found in Springer Verlag LNCS, numbers 1551, 1753, 1990, 2257, 2562, 3057, 3350, 3819, 4354, 4902, and 5418).
In this occasion PADL is co-located, as traditionally, with ACM POPL, which will be held immediately following PADL, January 20-22. The symposium will be held in Madrid, Spain. Previous PADLs were held in Savannah, Georgia, USA (2009), San Francisco, California, USA (2008), Nice, France (2007), Charleston (2006), Long Beach (2005), Dallas (2004), New Orleans (2003), Portland (2002), Las Vegas (2001), Boston (2000), and San Antonio (1999).
The proceedings of PADL'10 will appear in the LNCS series of Springer with the volume number 5937.
Important Dates (extended)
To register for PADL, please follow the instructions at the POPL Registration Page.
PADL will be co-located with POPL at the Meliá Castilla. You can find local information (attractions, restaurants, etc.) here.
Authors should submit an electronic copy of the full paper in PDF using the Springer LNCS format. The submission will be done through EasyChair at the PADL'10 submission site.
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 Submissions must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere.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.
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.
This year PADL will accept two different types of papers:
Technical PapersTechnical papers must describe original, previously unpublished research results in Computer Science, and must not be simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere. Technical papers must not exceed 15 pages 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 will be published in the Springer-Verlag conference proceedings, and will be presented in a separate session.
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 3 pages in Springer LNCS format.
Most Practical Paper Award
The Most Practical Paper award will be given to the submission that is judged by the program 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.
