co-located with POPL 2016

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:

  • 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.

Call for Papers

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

St. Petersburg, Florida, United States

January 18-19, 2016

Co-located with ACM POPL 2016

Submission Guidelines

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 Submissions must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Work that already appeared in unpublished or informally published workshops proceedings may be submitted but the authors should notify the program chair about the place on which it has previously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  • Technical papers must describe original, previously unpublished research results.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 Verlag.
