The 18th International Symposium on Principles and Practice of Declarative Programming will take place 5-7 September 2016 in Edinburgh, UK.
PPDP is 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 languages, database languages, and knowledge
PPDP 2016 will be held in Edinburgh, UK.
Previous symposia were held at
Montréal (Canada), and
Continuing a friendly tradition, PPDP 2016 will be co-located with the 26th International Symposium on Logic-Based Program Synthesis and Transformation (LOPSTR 2016).
The Call for Papers can be viewed or downloaded as
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 Work that already appeared in unpublished or informally published workshop proceedings may be submitted (please contact the PC chair in case of questions).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 2016.
Each submission must include on its first page the paper title; authors and their affiliations; abstract; and three to four keywords. The keywords will be used to assist the program committee in selecting appropriate reviewers for the paper.
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 the Science of Computer Programming journal.
