******************** Call for Papers ********************

            The 23rd International Conference on

      Theory and Applications of Satisfiability Testing

                        (SAT 2020)

              5-9 July 2020, Alghero, Italy



The International Conference on Theory and Applications

of Satisfiability Testing (SAT) is the premier annual

meeting for researchers focusing on the theory and

applications of the propositional satisfiability problem,

broadly construed. In addition to plain propositional

satisfiability, it also includes Boolean optimization

(such as MaxSAT and Pseudo-Boolean (PB) constraints),

Quantified Boolean Formulas (QBF), Satisfiability Modulo

Theories (SMT), and Constraint Programming (CP) for

problems with clear connections to Boolean-level reasoning.

*** Scope ***

SAT 2020 welcomes scientific contributions addressing

different aspects of the satisfiability problem, interpreted

in a broad sense. Topics include, but are not restricted to:

* Theoretical advances

* Practical search algorithms

* Knowledge compilation

* Implementation-level details of SAT solving tools

* Problem encodings and reformulations

* Applications

* Case studies based on rigorous experimentation

*** Invited Speakers ***

* Georg Gottlob, TU Wien, Austria

* Aarti Gupta, Princeton University, US

*** Out of Scope ***

Papers claiming to resolve a major long-standing open

theoretical question in Mathematics or Computer Science

(such as those for which a Millennium Prize is offered),

are outside the scope of the conference because there is

insufficient time in the schedule to referee such papers;

instead, such papers should be submitted to an appropriate

technical journal.

*** Paper Categories ***

Submissions to SAT 2020 are solicited in three categories,

describing original contributions.

* Long papers (9 to 15 pages, excluding references)

* Short papers (up to 8 pages, excluding references)

* Tool papers (up to 6 pages, excluding references)

Long and short papers should contain original research, with

sufficient detail to assess the merits and relevance of the

contribution. For papers reporting experimental results, authors

are strongly encouraged to make their data and implementations

available with their submission.

Submissions on applications and cases studies are especially

welcome. Such papers should describe details, weaknesses

and strengths of the considered approaches in sufficient depth,

but they are not expected to introduce novel solving approaches.

Tool papers must obey to specific content criteria. A tool

paper should describe the implemented tool and its novel

features. Here “tools” are interpreted in a broad sense,

including descriptions of implemented solvers, preprocessors,

etc. as well as systems that exploit SAT solvers or their

extensions for use in interesting problem domains.

A demonstration is expected to accompany a tool presentation.

Papers describing tools that have already been presented

previously are expected to contain significant and clear

enhancements to the tool.

Long and short papers will be evaluated with the same quality

standards, and are expected to contain a similar contribution

per page ratio.

*** Submissions ***

Submissions should not be under review elsewhere nor be submitted 
elsewhere while under review for SAT 2020, and should not consist of 
previously published material.

Submissions not consistent with the above guidelines may be returned 
without review.

All papers submissions are done exclusively via EasyChair in Springer’s 
LaTeX llncs2e style.

One author of each accepted paper is expected to present it at the 

Further details can be found at the website of SAT 2020:
