LaSh 2016 - The Fifth Workshop on Logic and Search.

Monday October 17, 2016, New York City
An ICLP 2016 Workshop

The LaSh Workshops on Logic and Search are devoted to scientific exchange
between researchers interested in the theory and practice of logic-based
problem solving. The workshop focuses on representational and algorithmic
issues in specifying or modelling and solving computationally challenging
search and optimization problems of a combinatorial nature.

Researchers interested in presenting their work should contact the organizers
by email (mitchell at cs dot sfu dot ca or lash2016 at easychair dot org), or
submit a paper or extended abstract, via EasyChair, by September 12 (revised).

LaSh emphasizes discussion and exchange of ideas among researchers with
related interests who may not normally attend the same major conferences.
Thus, along with new technical work, we welcome presentation of speculative
work, research summaries, relevant work that is previously published,
comparisons of different approaches and challenge or position papers.

Central topics include:
- Logics and representation languages for high-level problem specification;
- Model finders and ground solvers (e.g., SAT, ASP and SMT solvers etc.);
- Grounding and grounding-based solving systems;
- Modularity, compositionality and integration of heterogeneous solvers;
- Pre-processing and automated reasoning over specifications;
- Distributed and parallel solving;
- Declarative solver construction and meta-programming;
- Exploitation of problem and instance structure;
- Recent developments in tools or applications.

Important Dates:

Submission Deadline: September 12
Notification: September 17
