[  o Apologies for multiple messages.

   o Please register and make hotel reservations as soon as possible since
     both deadlines are approaching fast (Dec. 27th) 


You are cordially invited to the Fourth International Symposium on
Practical Aspects of Declarative Languages that will be held on Jan 19-20,
2002 right after ACM POPL. The program includes invited talks by three
distinguished speakers: J. Strother Moore of the University of Texas at
Austin, Catherine Meadows of the Naval Research Labs, and Veronica Dahl of
Simon Fraser University. Very low registration rates ($150 regular and
$100 student) and low conference hotel rates have been secured to make the
event affordable. The program ends by late afternoon on Sunday to let
attendees return home on Sunday itself. If you are attending ACM POPL, we
especially encourage you to plan to attend PADL.
