CF Participation: Answer Set Programming Competition

The Second Answer Set Programming Competition 

                        Call For Benchmark problems
                        Call For Participation 

 	            K.U.Leuven, Belgium, spring 2009

................................................................


The second ASP competition is a Modeling and Solving competition open
to all declarative problem solving systems from areas such as ASP, SAT
and CP.  In the competition, both satisfiability problems and
optimization problems need to be solved.  Each team submits a solver
and modelings for all benchmark problems. These are used to solve a
number of instances of each benchmark problem.  The solver that solves
the most instances wins. The results will be published in the Tenth
International Conference on Logic Programming and Nonmonotonic
Reasoning (LPNMR'09).  For more details on the format of the
competition, see the webpage.

The competition is open for all solvers.  The Modeling and Solving
formula offers the best opportunities for different communities to
show the strength of their applications and solvers.  Modeling support
for SAT teams, for whom modeling can be a burden, is available on the
webpage.

The competition is currently in its first phase: the collection of
benchmarks. We invite researchers from the different areas to help in
creating a representative collection of benchmarks by submitting
benchmark problems. For more details, see the webpage.
