                            22nd International Symposium on Practical
Aspects of Declarative Languages (PADL 2020)
<>,20-21 January 2020, New Orleans,
Louisiana, United States
with ACM POPL 2020 (

*Declarative languages* is an umbrella term that include functional, logic,
and constraint programming languages. These languages have been
successfully applied to many different real-world situations, ranging from
database management to active networks to software engineering to decision
support systems.

New developments in theory and implementation have opened up new
application areas. At the same time, applications of declarative languages
to challenging problems raise intriguing research questions, such as
scalable design and implementation, language extensions for application
deployment, and programming environments.

PADL is a well-established forum for researchers and practitioners to
present original work emphasizing novel applications and implementation
techniques for all forms of declarative programming, including functional
and logic programming, database and constraint programming, and theorem
proving. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

   - Innovative applications of declarative languages
   - Declarative domain-specific languages and applications
   - Practical applications of theoretical results
   - New language developments and their impact on applications
   - Declarative languages for software engineering
   - Evaluation of implementation techniques on practical applications
   - Practical experiences and industrial applications
   - Novel uses of declarative languages in the classroom
   - Practical languages and extensions such as probabilistic and reactive

*PADL 2020* especially welcomes new ideas and approaches pertaining to
applications, design and implementation of declarative languages going
beyond the scope of the past PADL symposia, for example, advanced database
languages and contract languages, as well as verification and theorem
proving methods that rely on declarative languages.
