                                 CALL FOR PAPERS                                 
                                   ASPOCP 2022                                   
      15th Workshop on Answer Set Programming and Other Computing Paradigms      
                                  July 31, 2022                                  
  Affiliated with ICLP 2022, 38th International Conference on Logic Programming  
                Part of FLOC 2022, the Federated Logic Conference                
                            July 31 - August 12, 2022                            


 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 

 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.

 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 knowledge compilation.                                               
 - ASP and machine learning.                                                    
 - New methods of computing answer sets using algorithms or systems of          
   other paradigms.                                                             
 - 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.


 The workshop invites two types of submissions:
  - original papers describing original research.
  - non-original paper already published on formal proceedings or journals.
 Original papers must not exceed 13 pages (excluding references) and must be 
 formatted using using the 1-column CEURART style available here.

 Authors are requested to clearly specify whether their submission is original 
 or not with a footnote on the first page.
 Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts in PDF via the EasyChair system 
 at the link: https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=aspocp2022.


All dates are 'Anywhere on Earth', namely 23:59 UTC-12.
 Abstract submission deadline:                              26 April 2022
 Paper submission deadline:                                 10 May 2022 
 Notification:                                              15 June 2022 
 Camera-ready articles due:                                 24 June 2022 


 Authors of all accepted original contributions can opt for to publish their 
 work on formal proceedings. 
 Accepted non-original contributions will be given visibility on the 
 conference web site including a link to the original publication, 
 if already published.

 A selection of extended and revised versions of accepted papers will appear 
 in a special issue.
 Extended versions of accepted non-original contributions, if not published 
 in a journal yet, might be included in the issue.


 The FLoC organizing committee will make all possible effort to ensure everyone 
 is able to attend in person. 
 We are, however, very much aware that there might be members of the community 
 who cannot travel to Israel and, in cases where travel is not possible, we 
 will ensure people can participate remotely.
