CALL FOR PAPERS
7th Workshop on Answer Set Programming and Other Computing Paradigms
July 23rd, 2014
Affiliated with the International Conference on Logic Programming
(part of the Federated Logic Conference 2014)
July 19-22, 2014
Collocated with the Vienna Summer of Logic 2014
July 12-24, 2014
AIMS AND SCOPE
Since its introduction in the late 1980s, answer set programming (ASP)
has been widely applied to various knowledge-intensive tasks and
combinatorial search problems. ASP was found to be closely related to
SAT, which has led to a method of computing answer sets using SAT
solvers and techniques adapted from SAT. While this has been the most
studied relationship which is currently extended towards
satisfiability modulo theories (SMT), the relationship of ASP to other
computing paradigms, such as constraint satisfaction, quantified
boolean formulas (QBF), first-order logic (FOL), or FO(ID) logic is
also the subject of active research. New methods of computing answer
sets are being developed based on the relation between ASP and other
paradigms, such as the use of pseudo-Boolean solvers, QBF solvers, FOL
theorem provers, and CLP systems.
Furthermore, the practical applications of ASP also foster work on
multi-paradigm problem-solving, and in particular language and solver
integration. The most prominent examples in this area currently are the
integration of ASP with description logics (in the realm of the
Semantic Web), constraint satisfaction, and general means of external
computation. This workshop will facilitate the discussion about
crossing the boundaries of current ASP techniques in theory, solving,
and applications, in combination with or inspired by other computing
Topics of interests include (but are not limited to):
- ASP and classical logic formalisms (SAT/FOL/QBF/SMT/DL).
- ASP and constraint programming.
- ASP and other logic programming paradigms, e.g., FO(ID).
- ASP and other nonmonotonic languages, e.g., action languages.
- ASP and external means of computation.
- ASP and probabilistic reasoning.
- ASP and machine learning.
- New methods of computing answer sets using algorithms or systems of
- Language extensions to ASP.
- ASP and multi-agent systems.
- ASP and multi-context systems.
- Modularity and ASP.
- ASP and argumentation.
- Multi-paradigm problem solving involving ASP.
- Evaluation and comparison of ASP to other paradigms.
- ASP and related paradigms in applications.
- Hybridizing ASP with procedural approaches.
- Enhanced grounding or beyond grounding.
Papers must describe original research and should not exceed 15 pages
in the Springer LNCS format <URL:http://www.springeronline.com/lncs/>.
Paper submission will be handled electronically by means of the
Easychair system. The submission page is available at
Abstract and paper submission deadline: April 1, 2014
Notification: May 1, 2014
Camera-ready articles due: May 20, 2014
Workshop: July 23, 2014
Accepted papers will be made available online and published in the
Computing Research Repository (CoRR) afterwards.
A selection of extended and revised versions of accepted papers will
appear in a special issue of the Journal of Logic and Computation
(http://logcom.oxfordjournals.org/), provided that a sufficient
amount of high quality papers is collected.
Such papers will go through a second formal selection process to meet
the high quality standard of the journal.
The workshop will be held in Vienna, Austria, collocated with
the International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP) 2014.
