CALL FOR PAPERS
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
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
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
- 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.
