=== Second Call for Papers ===


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 database 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
