24th International Symposium on Practical Aspects of Declarative Languages
(PADL 2022)

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States
17-18th January 2022

Co-located with POPL 2022

Conference Description

Declarative languages comprise several well-established classes of
formalisms, namely, functional, logic, and constraint programming.  Such
formalisms enjoy both sound theoretical bases and the availability of
attractive frameworks for application development. Indeed, they have been
already 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 fostered applications in new
areas. At the same time, applications of declarative languages to novel
and challenging problems raise many interesting research issues, including
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 well-established forum for researchers and practitioners to
present original work emphasizing novel applications and implementation
techniques for all forms of declarative programming, including functional
and logic programming, database and constraint programming, and theorem

Topic 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 2022 especially welcomes new ideas and approaches related to
applications, design and implementation of declarative languages going
beyond the scope of the past PADL symposia, for example, advanced database
languages and contract languages, as well as verification and theorem
proving methods that rely on declarative languages.

PADL 2022 welcomes three kinds of submission:

* Technical papers (max. 15 pages)
Technical papers must describe original, previously unpublished research

* Application papers (max. 8 pages)
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.

* Extended abstracts (max. 3 pages)
Describing new ideas, a new perspective on already published work, or
work-in-progress that is not yet ready for a full publication. Extended
abstracts will be posted on the symposium website but will not be
published in the formal proceedings.

All page limits exclude references. Submissions must be formatted
according to the standard Springer LNCS style. The conference proceedings
of PADL2022 will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in
Computer Science series.

Work that already appeared in unpublished or informally published
workshops proceedings may be submitted but the authors should notify the
program chairs about the place in which it has previously appeared.

PADL 2022 submissions are handled through the EasyChair conference
management system:

Important dates (tentative)

Abstract submission:         1 October 2021 (AoE)
Paper submission:            8 October 2021
Notification of acceptance:  5 November 2021
Symposium:                   17-18th January 2022


PADL is co-located with POPL, which will take place January 16-22, 2022,
as a physical, virtual, or hybrid physical/virtual meeting.
We will be monitoring the Covid-19 situation and will announce a decision
on the nature of the meeting in time which will follow suit with POPL.

Distinguished Papers

The authors of a small number of distinguished papers will be invited to
submit a longer version for journal publication after the symposium. For
papers related to logic programming, in the journal Theory and Practice of
Logic Programming (TPLP),
and for papers related to functional programming, in Journal of Functional
Programming (JFP)
The extended journal submissions should include roughly 30% more content
including, for example, explanations for which there was no space,
illuminating examples and proofs, additional definitions and theorems,
further experimental results, implementational details and feedback from
practical/engineering use, extended discussion of related work and such
