                   15th International Symposium on
       Practical Aspects of Declarative Languages (PADL 2013)


                Rome, Italy, January 21-22, 2013
                    Co-located with ACM POPL 2013

                       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 2013 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. The symposium will be held
in beautiful Rome, Italy.

               Important Dates and Submission Guidelines

               Abstract Submission:    September 10, 2012
               Paper Submission:       September 17, 2012
               Notification:             October 28, 2012
               Camera-ready:            November 12, 2012
               Symposium:             January 21-22, 2013

    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 chair long in advance 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 but the
authors should notify the program chair about the place on which it
has previously appeared.

PADL 2013 will accept both technical and application papers:

    * Technical papers must describe original, previously unpublished
      research results. Technical papers must not exceed 16 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 but such papers can also point to sites with
      supplemental information about the application or the system that
      they describe.
