[PVS] PADL'12 Second CFP



                          Call for Papers

                          ===============

 

                  14th International Symposium on

      Practical Aspects of Declarative Languages (PADL 2012)

 

            http://research.microsoft.com/~crusso/padl12

 

         Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, January 23-24, 2012

                    Co-located with ACM POPL'12

 

 

 

                      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'12 welcomes new ideas and approaches pertaining to

applications and implementation of declarative languages. In this

occasion PADL is co-located, as traditionally, with ACM POPL, which

will be held immediately following PADL, January 25-27. The symposium

will be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

 

 

 

              Important Dates and Submission Guidelines

              =========================================

 

              Abstract Submission:    September 10, 2011

              Paper Submission:       September 17, 2011

              Notification:             October 22, 2011

              Camera-ready:             November 5, 2011

              Symposium:             January 23-24, 2012

 

   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. If electronic submission is impossible,

please contact the program chairs for information on how to submit

hard copies. 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. PADL'12

will accept both technical and application papers:

 

   * Technical papers must describe original, previously unpublished

     research results. 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 6 pages in

     Springer LNCS format.
