FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS
9th Workshop on Answer Set Programming and Other Computing Paradigms
October 16 or 17, 2016 (preliminary dates)
Affiliated with the 32nd International Conference on Logic Programming
Now York City, USA
October 17 - 21, 2016
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
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.

- Hybridizing ASP with procedural approaches.
- Enhanced grounding or beyond grounding.
