On 8 and 9 October 2020, The second Declarative Amsterdam conference will take
place at CWI (Science Park, Amsterdam).

The conference focuses on the technologies and methods used for declarative
programming and declarative data.

Declarative programming is a style of programming that expresses the logic of
a computation without describing its control flow. It allows a software
engineer to focus on the 'what' of a program, rather than the 'how'.

Declarative programs can be constructed in less time, using much less code
than a traditional computer program.

Declarative methods for programming and data modelling can help to avoid
making the mistakes that have lead to failing software projects for several

Declarative Amsterdam will have presentations on past experiences, current
trends and future perspectives in fields such as functional programming,
declarative data modelling, databases, XML and related technologies, JSON,
CSS, semantic web, data science, data visualization, grammars, parsing, and
domain-specific languages.

The first day will feature tutorials, combining presentations and hands-on
labs to give an introduction to a specific topic. The second day is a
symposium, and consists of shorter presentations. Speakers can discuss new
ideas, frameworks, applications of declarative methods, and best practices.

This year, Declarative Amsterdam is being organized by Dutch XML enthusiasts,
who share an interest in technologies for data modelling and representation,
and declarative methods.

A call for presentations has been published on the website

In the event that the current meeting restrictions are still in effect in
October, the conference will be held remotely via video. More details will be
made available if and when the need arises.

(Koninklijke Brill NV), Erik Siegel (Xatapult), Nico Verwer (Rakensi), Pieter
