4th Workshop on Answer Set Programming and Other Computing Paradigms.
Collocated with the International Conference on Logic Programming 2011

[Text Version]


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.
