MC 2023

Workshop on Counting and Sampling 2023


The International Workshop on Counting and Sampling aims to provide a venue for researchers working on model counting such as model counting (mc), weighted model counting/sum of products (wmc), projected model counting (pmc) as well as sampling models within the realm but not restricting to Boolean satisfiability (SAT), satisfiability modulo theories (SMT), Answer set programming (ASP), and constraint programming (CP). It encourages to meet, communicate, and discuss the latest theoretical and practical results, in particular results on novel solvers, related solver technologies, new theoretical advances, practical academic and industrial applications as well as the linking theory and practice. The workshop is also the place for developers of model counters to present their solvers and the presentation of detailed results on the model counting competition.


The workshop will be colocated with the Workshops at the SAT 2023 Conference.




You present your best work related to counting and sampling, be it published elsewhere or yet unpublished.

Agenda / Talks

  • 20min (Talk) + 10min (Q&A)
  • 5min break


Submission: We place no format requirement. We expect that you provide a reasonable description in txt or pdf-format and upload this on Easychair.

Procedures for selecting papers: All submissions will be reviewed by 1-2 program committee members and papers will be selected based on their recommendations.

Plans for dissemination: There will be no proceedings, we will make the abstract and slides video publicly available at the website. If authors additionally pre-record a video, it will be distributed among the participants.
