  Since its introduction in the late 1980s, 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 which is currently extended towards
  satisfiability modulo theories (SMT), the relationship of ASP to other
  computing paradigms, such as constraint satisfaction, quantified
  boolean formulas (QBF), first-order logic (FOL), or FO(ID) logic 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, FOL
  theorem provers, and CLP systems.

  Furthermore, the practical applications of ASP also foster 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 theory, solving, and applications , in combination with
  or inspired by other computing paradigms.


  Topics of interests include (but are not limited to):

  - ASP and classical logic formalisms (SAT/FOL/QBF/SMT/DL).
  - ASP and constraint programming.
  - ASP and other logic programming paradigms, e.g., FO(ID).
  - ASP and other nonmonotonic languages, e.g., action languages.
  - ASP and probabilistic reasoning.
  - ASP and machine learning.
  - New methods of computing answer sets using algorithms or systems of
    other paradigms.
  - Language extensions to ASP.
  - ASP and multi-agent systems.
  - ASP and multi-context systems.
  - Modularity and ASP.
  - ASP and argumentation.
  - Multi-paradigm problem solving involving ASP.
  - Evaluation and comparison of ASP to other paradigms.
  - ASP and related paradigms in applications.
  - Hybridizing ASP with procedural approaches.
  - Enhanced grounding or beyond grounding.
