Call for papers

18th International Symposium on

Principles and Practice of Declarative Programming

PPDP 2016

Special Issue of Science of Computer Programming (SCP) -tentative-

Edinburgh, UK, September 5-7, 2016

(co-located with LOPSTR and SAS)



SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 9 MAY (abstracts) / 16 MAY (papers)



Elvira Albert, Complutense University of Madrid, Spain


PPDP 2016 is a forum that brings together researchers from the

declarative programming communities, including those working in the

logic, constraint and functional programming paradigms, but also

embracing languages, database languages, and knowledge representation

languages. The goal is to stimulate research in the use of logical

formalisms and methods for specifying, performing, and analyzing

computations, including mechanisms for mobility, modularity,

concurrency, object-orientation, security, verification and static

analysis. Papers related to the use of declarative paradigms and tools

in industry and education are especially solicited. Topics of interest

include, but are not limited to

* Functional programming

* Logic programming

* Answer-set programming

* Functional-logic programming

* Declarative visual languages

* Constraint Handling Rules

* Parallel implementation and concurrency

* Monads, type classes and dependent type systems

* Declarative domain-specific languages

* Termination, resource analysis and the verification of declarative programs

* Transformation and partial evaluation of declarative languages

* Language extensions for security and tabulation

* Probabilistic modeling in a declarative language and modeling reactivity

* Memory management and the implementation of declarative systems

* Practical experiences and industrial application

This year the conference will be co-located with the 26th Int'l Symp.

on Logic-Based Program Synthesis and Transformation (LOPSTR 2016) and

the 23rd Static Analysis Symposium (SAS 2016).

The conference will be held in Edinburgh, UK. Previous symposia were

held at Siena (Italy), Canterbury (UK), Madrid (Spain), Leuven

(Belgium), Odense (Denmark), Hagenberg (Austria), Coimbra (Portugal),

Valencia (Spain), Wroclaw (Poland), Venice (Italy), Lisboa (Portugal),

Verona (Italy), Uppsala (Sweden), Pittsburgh (USA), Florence (Italy),

Montreal (Canada), and Paris (France). You might have a look at the

contents of past PPDP symposia, http://sites.google.com/site/ppdpconf/

Papers must describe original work, be written and presented in

English, and must not substantially overlap with papers that have been

published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal,

conference, or workshop with refereed proceedings. Work that already

appeared in unpublished or informally published workshop proceedings

may be submitted (please contact the PC chair in case of questions).

After the symposium, a selection of the best papers will be invited to

extend their submissions in the light of the feedback solicited at the

symposium. The papers are expected to include at least 30% extra

material over and above the PPDP version. Then, after another round of

reviewing, these revised papers will be published in a special issue

of SCP with a target publication date by Elsevier of 2017 (tentative).

Important Dates

Abstract submission: 9 May, 2016

Paper submission: 16 May, 2016

Notification: 20 June, 2016

Final version of papers: 17 July, 2016

Symposium: 5-7 September, 2016

Authors should submit an electronic copy of the full paper in

PDF. Papers should be submitted to the submission website for PPDP

2016. Each submission must include on its first page the paper title;

authors and their affiliations; abstract; and three to four

keywords. The keywords will be used to assist the program committee in

selecting appropriate reviewers for the paper. Papers should consist

of the equivalent of 12 pages under the ACM formatting

guidelines. These guidelines are available online, along with

formatting templates or style files. Submitted papers will be judged

on the basis of significance, relevance, correctness, originality, and

clarity. They should include a clear identification of what has been

accomplished and why it is significant. Authors who wish to provide

additional material to the reviewers beyond the 12-page limit can do

so in clearly marked appendices: reviewers are not required to read

such appendices.
