The 14th International ACM SIGPLAN Symposium on Principles and Practice of Declarative Programming will take place in September 2012 in Leuven, Belgium.
PPDP 2012 is a forum that brings together researchers from the declaratrive programming communities, including those working in the logic, constraint and functional programming paradigms, but also embracing 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 analyzing 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
This year the conference will be co-located with the 22st International Symposium on Logic-Based Program Synthesis and Transformation (LOPSTR 2012) and held in cooperation with ACM SIGPLAN.
The conference will be held in Leuven, Belgium Previous symposia were held at 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). You might have a look at the contents of past PPDP symposia.
The proceedings will be published by ACM press.
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 Work that already appeared in unpublished or informally published workshop proceedings may be submitted (please contact the PC chair in case of questions).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 2012.
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.
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 2013.
