PPDP 2013: 2nd Call for Papers

=====================================================================

                        2nd Call for papers
               15th International Symposium on
       Principles and Practice of Declarative Programming
                           PPDP 2013

Special Issue of Science of Computer Programming (SCP)

            Madrid, Spain, September 16-18, 2013
                 (co-located with LOPSTR 2013)


======================================================================

EXTENDED SUBMISSION DEADLINE: JUNE 13, 2013


PPDP 2013 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 23nd International
Symposium on Logic-Based Program Synthesis and Transformation (LOPSTR 2013) and
held in cooperation with ACM SIGPLAN.  The conference will be held in Madrid,
Spain. Previous symposia were held at 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). 

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 in the ACM International Conference
Proceedings Series.


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 2014.

Important Dates

Abstract Submission: June 10, 2013
Paper submission: June 13, 2013
Notification: July 18, 2013
Camera-ready: August 4, 2013 

Symposium: September 16-18, 2013  

Invites for SCP: October 2, 2013 
Submission of SCP: December 11, 2013 
Notification from SCP: February 22, 2014 
Camera-ready for SCP: March 14, 2014 

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.
