                              July 19-22, 2014

                Collocated with the Vienna Summer of Logic 2014
                               Vienna, Austria
                              July 12-24, 2014


 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
   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.

 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.
