                 * NEW: Provisional Program included *

		  Seventh International Symposium on
	   Practical Aspects of Declarative Languages 2005
			      (PADL 05)


		     Long Beach, California, USA
			 January 10-11, 2005

	    Co-located with ACM POPL, January 12-14, 2005

           Early registration deadline:  ** December 15th **

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, 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 implementation techniques relevant to applications. 
 * Novel uses of declarative languages in the classroom. 
 * Practical experiences.

PADL 05  welcomes new ideas and approaches  pertaining to applications
and implementation of declarative languages, and is not limited to the
scope of the first six PADL symposia (past proceedings can be found in
Springer Verlag LNCS, numbers 1551, 1753, 1990, 2257, 2562, and 3057).

In this occasion PADL is  co-located, as traditionally, with ACM POPL,
which will be held immediately following PADL, January 12-14.
