Workshop on Answer Set Programming and Other Computing Paradigms

Collocated with the International Conference on Logic Programming 2008

Udine, Italy

December 9-13, 2008 (exact day to be determined)


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
computing paradigms.


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
other paradigms.
- ASP and probabilistic reasoning.
- ASP and machine learning.
- Language extensions to ASP.
- 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 / beyond grounding.


Papers must describe original research and should not exceed 15 pages
in the Springer LNCS format ")

Paper submission will be handled electronically by means of the
Easychair system. The submission page is available at .


Submission Deadline: September 15, 2008
Notification: October 20, 2008
Camera-ready articles due: November 10, 2008
Workshop: December 9-13, 2008 (exact day to be determined)


The workshop contributions will be published electronically, using
the Computing Research Repository (CoRR). Informal printed
proceedings will be provided at the workshop. It is planned to
publish significantly extended versions of selected contributions as
post-proceedings, preferably as a special edition of a journal. The
post-proceeding articles will be subject to a further peer-reviewing


The workshop will be held in Udine, Italy, collocated with the
International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP) 2008.
