                               CALL FOR PAPERS
                                 ASPOCP 2017
     10th Workshop on Answer Set Programming and Other Computing Paradigms
                              July 3, 2017

   Affiliated with the 14th International Conference on Logic Programming
                            Nonmonotonic Reasoning
                                Espoo, Finland
                               July 3 - 6, 2017



 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.

 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.

 Papers must describe original research and should not exceed 13 pages in
 Springer LNAI/LNCS format <https://www.springer.com/gp/authors-editors/
 conference-proceedings/conference-proceedings-guidelines>. Paper
 will be handled electronically by means of the Easychair system. The
 submission page is available at

 Abstract and paper submission deadline:      April 3, 2017
 LPNMR Notification:                          March 7, 2017
 ASPOCP Notification:                         May 1, 2017
 Camera-ready articles due:                   May 22, 2017
 Workshop:                                    July 3, 2017


 Accepted papers will be made available online. At least one author of each
accepted paper needs to register for the workshop.

 We aim at selecting extended and revised versions of accepted papers
 to appear in a special issue of an international journal (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 Espoo, Finland, collocated with
 the International Conference on Logic Programming and Nonmonotonic
 Reasoning (LPNMR) 2017. Please note that at least one co-author of each
 accepted paper will be required to register for the workshop.
