DAMP 2011 is the  sixth in  a series of  one-day  workshops seeking to
explore  ideas in  declarative  programming  language design that will
greatly  simplify programming for  multicore  architectures, and  more
generally  for tightly  coupled parallel  architectures.  The emphasis
will be  on (constraint-)logic and  functional  programming, but  any
declarative programming language ideas that aim to raise the level of
abstraction are welcome. DAMP seeks to gather together researchers in
declarative approaches to parallel programming and to foster cross
fertilization across different approaches.
