                          CALL FOR PAPERS!!!      

                    Eighth International Symposium on 
             Practical Aspects of Declarative Languages 2006
		             (PADL '06) 

	           http://www.cs.brown.edu/people/pvh/PADL06

                        Charleston Place Hotel                          
                      Charleston, South Carolina             
			   January 9-10

                     Co-located with ACM POPL'06

Declarative languages build on sound theoretical bases to provide attractive 
frameworks for application development. These languages have been successfully 
applied to vastly 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 raises 
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 practioners 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:

 * innovative applications of declarative languages;
 * declarative domain-specific languages and applications;
 * practical applications of theoretical results;
 * new language developments & their impact on applications;
 * evaluation of implementation techniques on practical applications;
 * novel uses of declarative languages in the classroom; and
 * practical experiences

PADL 06 welcomes new ideas and approaches pertaining to applications and implementation 
of declarative languages, and is not limited to the scope of the past five PADL symposia.

PADL 06 will be co-located with the ACM POPL. 

IMPORTANT DATES AND SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

      Paper Submission:      August 20, 2005
      Notification:          September 30, 2005
      Final Manuscript:      October 20, 2005
      Symposium:             January 9-10, 2005

      Authors should submit an electronic copy of the full paper (written in 
      English) in Postscript (Level 2) or PDF. Papers must be no longer than 15 
      pages, written in 11-point font and with single spacing. Since the final 
      proceedings will be published as Lecture Notes in Computer Science by Springer 
      Verlag, authors are strongly encouraged to use the LNCS paper formatting 
      guidelines for their submission.

      Each submission must include on its first page the paper title; authors and 
      their affiliations; contact author's email and postal addresses, telephone and 
      fax numbers, abstract, and three to four keywords. The keywords will be used to 
      assist us in selecting appropriate reviewers for the paper. If electronic submission 
      is impossible, please contact the program chair for information on how to submit 
      hard copies.


MOST PRACTICAL PAPER AWARD

	  The Most Practical Paper award will be given to the submission that is judged 
	  by the programm 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 may make multiple awards.
