Eleventh International Symposium on Practical Aspects of Declarative Languages 2009 (PADL '09)
Savannah Georgia, USA
January 19-20, 2008
Co-located with ACM POPL'09
Declarative languages build on sound theoretical bases to provide attractive frameworks for application development. These languages have been successfully applied to vastly 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:
* innovative applications of declarative languages;
* declarative domain-specific languages and applications;
* practical applications of theoretical results;
* new language developments & their impact on applications;
* evaluation of implementation techniques on practical applications;
* novel uses of declarative languages in the classroom; and
* practical experiences
PADL 09 welcomes new ideas and approaches pertaining to applications and implementation of declarative languages. PADL 09 will be co-located with the ACM POPL.
IMPORTANT DATES AND SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
Paper Submission: September 8, 2008
Notification: October 10, 2008
Camera-ready: November 5, 2008
Symposium: January 19-20, 2009
Authors should submit an electronic copy of the full paper (written in English) in Postscript (Level 2) or PDF, in the Springer LNCS format (see http://www.springeronline.com/lncs/ ).
In addition to the technical papers of previous PADL conferences, PADL 09 will contain a streamk for application papers.
Technical papers must describe original, previously unpublished results, and must not be simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere. Each submission must be written in English, and include three to four keywords, which will be used to assist us in selecting appropriate reviewers for the paper. Submissions 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 poster 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 technical 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 to make multiple awards.
