                           CALL FOR PAPERS

                     Ninth International Symposium on
             Practical Aspects of Declarative Languages 2007
                             (PADL '07)


                            Nice, France
                        January 14-15, 2007

                     Co-located with ACM POPL'07


Declarative languages build on sound theoretical foundations to
provide attractive frameworks for application development. These
languages have been successfully applied to a wide array of different
real-world situations, including database management, active networks,
software engineering, web applications, decision support systems, or
music composition.

New developments in theory and implementation have opened up new
application areas. At the same time, the application 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 often 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 and their impact on applications;
 * evaluation of implementation techniques on practical applications;
 * novel uses of declarative languages in the classroom; and
 * practical experiences

PADL 07 welcomes new ideas and approaches pertaining to applications
and implementation of declarative languages, and is not limited to the
scope of the past eight PADL symposia.

PADL 07 will be co-located with the ACM POPL.


Abstract Submission: August 30, 2006
Paper Submission: September 3, 2006 (strict)
Notification: October 2, 2006
Final Manuscript: October 22, 2006
Symposium: January 14-15, 2007

All submissions must be original work written in English. Submissions
must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Work
that already appeared in unpublished or informally published workshops
proceedings may be submitted.

Authors should submit an electronic copy of the full paper (written in
English) in Postscript (Level 2) or PDF via the web page of PADL 07.
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, submissions
should adhere to the LNCS paper formatting guidelines.

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.


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
