QBFEVAL'18 - Competitive Evaluation of QBF Solvers
A joint event with the 21st Int. Conference on Theory and Applications of Satisfiability Testing (SAT)
(affiliated with FLoC 2018)
Oxford, UK, July 9 - July 12 2018

QBFEVAL'18 is the 2018 competitive evaluation of QBF solvers, and the thirteenth evaluation of QBF solvers and instances ever. QBFEVAL'18 awards solvers that stand out as being particularly effective on specific categories of QBF instances.

We warmly encourage developers of QBF solvers to submit their work, even at early stages of development, as long as it fulfills some very simple requirements.

We also welcome the submission of QBF formulas to be used for the evaluation. Researchers thinking about using QBF-based techniques in their area (e.g., formal verification, planning, knowledge representation & reasoning) are invited to contribute to the evaluation by submitting QBF instances of their research problems (see the requirements for instances). The results of the evaluation will be a good indicator of the current feasibility of QBF-based approaches and a stimulus for people working on QBF solvers to further enhance their tools.

Details about solvers and benchmarks submission, tracks, and related rules, are available at http://www.qbflib.org/qbfeval18.php
