13th Workshop on Answer Set Programming and Other
September 17 or 18,
2020 (ICLP Workshop)
Affiliated with 36th International
Conference on Logic Programming,
Calabria, Rende, Italy
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
methods of computing answer sets are being developed based on
relationships to these formalisms.
Furthermore, the practical applications of ASP also foster work on
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
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
- 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.
The workshop invites two types of submissions:
- papers describing original research,
- non-original papers already published in formal proceedings or
Original papers must not exceed 13 pages (excluding references) and must
be formatted using the Springer LNCS style available here
Authors are requested to clearly specify whether their submission is
original or not with a footnote on the first page.

Authors of all accepted original contributions can opt for to publish
their work on formal proceedings.
Accepted non-original contributions will be given visibility on the
conference web site including a link to the original publication, if
A selection of extended and revised versions of accepted papers will
appear in a special issue. We are currently negotiating with potential
Such papers will go through a second formal selection process to meet the
high quality standard of the journal.
Extended versions of accepted non-original contributions, if not published
in a journal yet, might be included in the issue.
