     11th Workshop on Answer Set Programming and Other Computing Paradigms      
                              July 18, 2018 (Post-FLoC workshop)
   Affiliated with the 35th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP)
as part of the Federated Logic Conference 2018
                                Oxford, UK                                  
                             July 14 - 17, 2018                                 
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 led to a new method of computing answer sets using SAT              
 solvers and techniques adapted from SAT. This has been a much                  
 studied relationship, and is currently extended towards                        
 satisfiability modulo theories (SMT). The relationship of ASP to other         
 computing paradigms, such as constraint satisfaction, quantified               
 Boolean formulas (QBF), Constraint Logic Programming (CLP),                    
 first-order logic (FOL), and FO(ID) is also the subject of active              
 research. Consequently, new methods of computing answer sets are being         
 developed based on relationships to these formalisms.                        
 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) and constraint satisfaction (which recently led to               
 the Constraint Answer Set Programming (CASP) research direction).            
 A large body of general results regarding ASP is available and                 
 several efficient ASP solvers have been implemented. However, there            
 are still significant challenges in applying ASP to real life                  
 applications, and more interest in relating ASP to other computing             
 paradigms is emerging. This workshop will provide opportunities for            
 researchers to identify these challenges and to exchange ideas for             
 overcoming them.

 Papers must describe original research and should not exceed 13 pages (excluding

 Paper submission will be handled electronically by means of the Easychair system. 
 The submission page is available here.

 The submission format is TPLP (Style).

 Accepted papers will be made available online as inofficial proceedings with 
 CEUR proceedings. The best paper will receive an invitation to the Journal on 
 Theory and Practice of Logic Programming (TPLP) as fast track paper. 

 A selection of extended and revised versions of accepted papers will appear 
 in a special issue. We are currently negotiating with potential journals.
 Such papers will go through a second formal selection process to meet
 the high quality standard of the journal.
