News and updates

What is the Open ASP Competition?

The Open ASP Competition has two tracks: the Model & Solve Track and the System Track.

  • In the Model & Solve Track, a number of problem domain specifications are given, together with a set of instances thereof. All you need to participate is a system able to model using a declarative specification paradigm of any sort, and some manpower for preparing benchmark solutions. Winners are awarded on the basis of their time performance and, for optimization problems, on the basis of the quality of their solutions. Note that we are more interested at comparing systems and their performance on standard problems, rather than measuring the modelling 'trickery' of participants: this is why you will have several months for preparing declarative specifications and your system, so to make affordable the burden of modelling a number of problems, also for small teams. Problem specification can be freely exchanged among participants whenever they use the same input language.

  • The System Track is reserved to Answer Set Programming systems, able to cope with a fixed problem specification language. The 4th ASP Competition will be held on an extension of ASP-Core called ASP-Core-2.

To have an idea of the type of problems involved and what we measure on competitors, you might want to visit the official problem list and Rules & Scoring system.
