Call For Papers


Call for papers
14th International Symposium on
Principles and Practice of Declarative Programming
PPDP 2012

Special Issue of Science of Computer Programming (SCP)

Leuven, Belgium, September 18-20, 2012
(co-located with LOPSTR 2012)


PPDP 2012 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
a variety of other paradigms such as visual programming, executable specification
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 analysing 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 modelling in a declarative language and modelling reactivity
* Memory management and the implementation of declarative systems
* Practical experiences and industrial application

This year the conference will be co-located with the 22nd International Symposium on
Logic-Based Program Synthesis and Transformation (LOPSTR 2012) and held in cooperation with
ACM SIGPLAN. The conference will be held in Leuven, Belgium. Previous symposia were held
at 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).

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).
Proceedings will be published by ACM Press*

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 25% 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 2013.

Important Dates

Abstract Submission: May 28, 2012
Paper submission: May 31, 2012
Notification: July 6, 2012
Camera-ready: July 18, 2012

Symposium: September 19-21, 2012

Invites for SCP: September 26, 2012
Submission of SCP: December 12, 2012
Notification from SCP: February 7, 2013
Camera-ready for SCP: March 7, 2013

Authors should submit an electronic copy of the paper (written in English) in PDF.
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 us in selecting appropriate reviewers for the paper. Papers should
consist of no more than 12 pages, formatted following the ACM SIG proceedings
template (option 1). The 12 page limit must include references but excludes well-marked
appendices not intended for publication. Referees are not required to read the
appendices, and thus papers should be intelligible without them.
