                         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
