                                 ASPOCP 2018

     11th Workshop on Answer Set Programming and Other Computing Paradigms


                              July 18, 2018 (Post-FLoC workshop)

   Affiliated with the 35th International Conference on Logic Programming
as part of the Federated Logic Conference 2018
                                Oxford, UK
                             July 14 - 17, 2018



 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.

 Accepted papers will be made available online as inofficial proceedings
 CEUR proceedings. The best paper will receive an invitation to the Journal
 Theory and Practice of Logic Programming (TPLP) as fast track paper.

 A selection of extended and revised versions of accepted papers will
 in a special issue. We are currently negotiating with potential journals.
 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 Oxford, UK, co-located with
 the 35th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP) as
 as part of the Federated Logic Conference 2018.
