                          Call for Papers

                  13th International Symposium on 
      Practical Aspects of Declarative Languages (PADL 2011)


              Austin, Texas, USA, January 24-25, 2011
                    Co-located with ACM POPL'11

                      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

   PADL'11 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, January 26-28. The symposium
will be held in Austin, Texas, USA.

              Important Dates and Submission Guidelines

              Abstract Submission:    September 1, 2010
              Paper Submission:       September 8, 2010
              Notification:            October 11, 2010
              Camera-ready:            November 1, 2010
              Symposium:            January 24-25, 2011

  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 chairs 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. PADL'11
will accept both technical and application papers:

   * Technical papers must describe original, previously unpublished
     research results. Technical papers 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 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 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.
