                             3rd CALL FOR PAPERS

                                 ASPOCP 2009

     2nd Workshop on Answer Set Programming and Other Computing Paradigms

    Collocated with the International Conference on Logic Programming 2009

                          Pasadena, California, USA

                              July 14-17, 2009



 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 or beyond grounding.


 Papers must describe original research and should not exceed 15 pages
 in the Springer LNCS format <URL:>.

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


 Submission deadline: April 28, 2009 (extended)
 Notification: May 27, 2009
 Camera-ready articles due: June 10, 2009
 Proceedings to ICLP: June 15, 2009
 Workshop: ~ July 14-17, 2009 (exact day to be determined)


 The workshop contributions will be published electronically, using
 the Computing Research Repository (CoRR). Informal proceedings will
 be provided at the workshop.


 The workshop will be held in Pasadena, California, USA, collocated
 with the International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP) 2009.
