                          Call for papers
           14th International ACM SIGPLAN Symposium on
        Principles and Practice of Declarative Programming
                            PPDP 2012

 	Special Issue of Science of Computer Programming (SCP)

             Leuven, Belgium, September 18-20, 2012
                  (co-located with LOPSTR 2012)


PPDP 2012 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 a variety of other 
paradigms such as visual programming, executable specification 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 analysing 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:

*	Functional programming
*	Logic programming
*	Answer-set programming
*	Functional-logic programming
*	Declarative visual languages
*	Constraint Handling Rules
*	Parallel implementation and concurrency
*	Monads, type classes and dependent type systems
*	Declarative domain-specific languages
*	Termination, resource analysis and the verification of declarative programs
*	Transformation and partial evaluation of declarative languages
*	Language extensions for security and tabulation
*	Probabilistic modelling in a declarative language and modelling reactivity
*	Memory management and the implementation of declarative systems
*	Practical experiences and industrial application

This year the conference will be co-located with the 22nd 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).

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). Proceedings will be published by ACM Press*

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 25% 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.

Authors should submit an electronic copy of the paper (written in English) in 
PDF. 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 us in selecting appropriate reviewers for the paper. Papers 
should consist of no more than 12 pages, formatted following the ACM SIG 
proceedings template (option 1). The 12 page limit must include references but 
excludes well-marked appendices not intended for publication. Referees are not 
required to read the appendices, and thus papers should be intelligible without
