|July 20-22, 2011|
The 13th International ACM SIGPLAN Symposium on Principles and Practice of Declarative Programming will take place in July 2011 in Odense, Denmark.
PPDP 2011 aims to provide 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, AI languages and knowledge representation languages used, for example, in the semantic web. The goal is to stimulate research in the use of logical formalisms and methods for specifying, performing, and analyzing computations, including mechanisms for mobility, modularity, concurrency, object-orientation, security, and static analysis. Papers related to the use of declarative paradigms and tools in industry and education are especially solicited.
This year the conference will be co-located with the 21st International Symposium on Logic-Based Program Synthesis and Transformation (LOPSTR 2011) and held in cooperation with ACM SIGPLAN.
The conference will be held at the University of Southern Denmark. Previous symposia were held in 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). You might have a look at the contents of past PPDP symposia. The PPDP site contains more information about the PPDP series of symposia.
The proceedings have been published by ACM press.
Starting with PPDP 2011, each year the most influential paper from the conference 10 years ago is selected by the PPDP Steering Committee and awarded with a small prize to recognize the authors' contribution to PPDP's influence in the area of declarative programming. The PPDP Award 2011 for the most influential PPDP 2001 has been given to the paper "Defunctionalization at Work" by Olivier Danvy and Lasse R. Nielsen.
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 Work that already appeared in unpublished or informally published workshop proceedings may be submitted (please contact the PC chair in case of questions).
Authors should submit an electronic copy of the full paper in PDF. Papers should be submitted to the submission website for PPDP 2011.
Papers should consist of the equivalent of 12 pages under the ACM formatting guidelines. These guidelines are available online, along with formatting templates or style files.
Submitted papers will be judged on the basis of significance, relevance, correctness, originality, and clarity. They should include a clear identification of what has been accomplished and why it is significant.
Authors who wish to provide additional material to the reviewers beyond the 12-page limit can do so in clearly marked appendices: reviewers are not required to read such appendices.
Invited talks will be given by
Program Chair (contact him for additional information about papers and submissions):
