Abstract

Declarative languages build on sound theoretical bases to provide attractive frame- works for application development. 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 novel problems raise numerous interesting research issues. Well-known questions include designing for scalability, language extensions for application deployment, and programming envi- ronments. Thus, applications 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 practitioners to present original work emphasizing novel applications and implementation techniques for all forms of declarative concepts, including, functional, logic, constraints, etc. This book collects the contributions accepted for publication at the 18th Interna- tional Symposium on Practical Aspects of Declarative Languages (PADL 2016), held in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA, during January 18–19, 2016. Originally established as a workshop (PADL 1999 in San Antonio, Texas), the PADL series developed into a regular annual symposium; the preceding editions took place in San Antonio, Texas (1999), Boston, Massachusetts (2000), Las Vegas, Nevada (2001), Portland, Oregon (2002), New Orleans, Louisiana (2003), Dallas, Texas (2004), Long Beach, California (2005), Charleston, South Carolina (2006), Nice, France (2007), San Francisco, California (2008), Savannah, Georgia (2009), Madrid, Spain (2010), Austin, Texas (2012), Rome, Italy (2013), San Diego, California (2014), and Portland, Oregon (2015).
