CALL FOR PAPERS
3rd Workshop on Answer Set Programming and Other Computing Paradigms
Collocated with the International Conference on Logic Programming 2010
Edinburgh (Scotland, U.K)
July 16-19, 2010
AIMS AND SCOPE
Since its introduction in the 1990s, 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 has led to a new method of computing answer sets using SAT
solvers and techniques adapted from SAT. While this has been the most
studied relationship, the relationship of ASP to other computing
paradigms, such as constraint satisfaction, quantified Boolean
formulas (QBF), or first-order logic (FOL) is also the subject of
active research. New methods of computing answer sets are being
developed based on the relation between ASP and other paradigms, such
as the use of pseudo-Boolean solvers, QBF solvers, and FOL theorem
provers. Furthermore, the practical application of ASP also fosters
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. This
workshop will facilitate the discussion about crossing the boundaries
of current ASP techniques, in combination with or inspired by other
Topics of interests include (but are not limited to):
- Relating ASP to classical logic formalisms (SAT/FOL/QBF/SMT/DL).
- Relating ASP to constraint programming.
- Relating ASP to other logic programming paradigms.
- Relating ASP to other nonmonotonic languages.
- New methods of computing answer sets using algorithms or systems of
- ASP and probabilistic reasoning.
- ASP and machine learning.
- Language extensions to ASP.
- ASP and argumentation.
- ASP and multi-agent systems.
- Multi-paradigm problem solving involving ASP.
- Evaluation and comparison of ASP to other paradigms.
- Embedding ASP for challenging applications.
- Hybridizing ASP with procedural approaches.
- Enhanced grounding or beyond grounding.
Papers must describe original research and should not exceed 15 pages
in the Springer LNCS format <URL:http://www.springeronline.com/lncs/>.
Paper submission will be handled electronically by means of the
Easychair system. The submission page is available at
