3 July 2017, 1st International Workshop on Practical Aspects of Answer Set Programming (PAoASP 2017), Espoo, Finland
Answer Set Programming (ASP) is a declarative programming paradigm with close relationships to neighboring fields such as ATP, CP, FO(.), SAT, SMT, and others. Since its inception in 2007, the ASP Competition series strives to evaluate and advance the state of the art in ASP solving technology. The International Workshop on Practical Aspects of Answer Set Programming (PAoASP) addresses current developments of systems, tools, and applications in ASP and neighboring fields. To this end, it aims to bring together researchers and practitioners of declarative programming with dedicated focus on, but not limited to, recent methods and trends emerging from the ASP Competition.
The 1st International Workshop on Practical Aspects of Answer Set Programming (PAoASP 2017) is organized in conjunction with the 7th Answer Set Programming Competition (ASPCOMP 2017) and affiliated with the 14th International Conference on Logic Programming and Nonmonotonic Reasoning (LPNMR 2017).
We solicit the submission of papers on systems, tools, and applications of declarative programming methods, developed in the area of ASP and neighboring fields. In particular, we encourage submissions presenting recent developments, including work in progress.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: Algorithm Selection and Configuration, Applications and Benchmarks, Empirical Evaluation, Grounding and Solving, Implementation Techniques, Parallel Systems, Portfolio Systems, Reasoning Tasks, Theory Solving and Translation Methods.
