Practical Aspects of Declarative Languages PADL2020: 2nd CFP

Boost - Interest mailing list,

20-21 January 2020, New Orleans, Louisiana, United States

Co-located with ACM POPL 2020 (

Declarative languages is an umbrella term that include functional, logic, and constraint programming languages. These languages have been successfully applied to many different real-world situations, ranging from database 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 challenging problems raise intriguing research questions, such as scalable design and implementation, language extensions for application deployment, and programming environments. 

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 proving. 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 for software engineering
  • Evaluation of implementation techniques on practical applications
  • Practical experiences and industrial applications
  • Novel uses of declarative languages in the classroom
  • Practical languages and extensions such as probabilistic and reactive languages

PADL 2020 especially welcomes new ideas and approaches pertaining 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.
