NASO is a 1-day workshop featuring both paper presentations and open discussions about common topics, bringing researchers from various backgrounds and aiming at maximal interaction between participants, rather than a sequence of sharply focused formal talks with little interaction with the audience.

Aims and Scope

With the multiplication and increased availability of specialized hardware and supercomputers for AI applications, the idea of using dedicated architectures (not only hybrid GPU-enhanced parallel platforms but also systems based on quantum annealing) for hard search and optimization problems has seen a rapid development. As fundamental techniques widely used in AI, search and optimization methods (e.g. constraint programming, SAT solving or metaheuristics) share the key concern of using in an efficient manner the computing power at hand, as bigger computing power means the ability to attack more complex combinatorial problems.

Following many experiments in the last decade aimed at efficiently parallelizing different types of methods, the challenge is now to devise efficient techniques and algorithms for Exascale computing, that is, massively parallel computers with hundreds of thousands of cores in the form of heterogeneous hybrid systems based on both multi-core processors and GPUs.

Orthogonal to the deployment of supercomputing hardware, a series of exotic architectures appeared in the last few years, based on quantum annealing (D-Wave systems) or quantum-inspired annealing (Fujitsu’s Digital Annealing Unit, Hitachi’s CMOS Annealing Machine, Toshiba’s Simulated Bifurcation Machine, Fixstars Amplify Annealer Engine). Their main target is to efficiently solve combinatorial optimization problems with dedicated methods on specialized hardware, and clear advances can be expected in that area over the next decade. Even more exotic are the very recent experiments with optical computers tackling combinatorial problems formulated as Ising models.

All these new research directions can pave the way for developing new search algorithms and combinatorial optimization methods or to the re-design of well-known techniques in order to boost this growing area of research through cross-fertilization. This workshop thus aims to be a forum for researchers working on new architectures for search and optimization in diverse fields (AI, HPC, algorithms, hardware, quantum computing), willing to share their experience and to exchange ideas. We would like to provide a cross-community forum for researchers working on any kind of novel architectures, and therefore solicit papers on the following topics, including reports on work in progress, as well as position papers.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

- Parallel and distributed search algorithms for problem solving (search algorithms, constraint solving, SAT solving, SMT, logic programming, planning, etc),
- Parallel metaheuristics (local search, evolutionary algorithms, ant colony optimization, particle swarm optimization, etc)
- Quantum and quantum-inspired annealing for combinatorial problems
- Problem representation in the QUBO and Ising models
- Relations between statistical physics models and combinatorial problems
- Optical computing for combinatorial problems (e.g. based on Ising model)
- Benchmarks and performance comparison between different architectures

Workshop Topics and Paper Submission

We would like to provide a cross-community forum for researchers working on search methods (Constraint Solving, Logic Programming, SAT solving, Artificial Intelligence, etc), combinatorial optimization methods (metaheuristics, local search, tabu search, evolutionary algorithms, ant colony optimization, particle swarm optimization, memetic algorithms, and other types of algorithms) and users of alternative computing architectures (Grids, large PC clusters, massively parallel computers, GPGPUs, edge computing, heterogeneous multicores, quantum annealers, quantum-inspired digital annealers, etc) in order to tackle the challenge of efficient implementations of search and optimization methods on all kinds of exotic hardware.

We thus solicit papers on the above topics, including reports on work in progress, as well as position papers.

Papers must not exceed 10 pages in the IJCAI-ECAI style and should be submitted through EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=naso2022.
