SYNTCOMP 2014 was a big success: 5 synthesis tools competed in 4 different categories, crunching on the 569 benchmark instances we collected for the first competition. The results have been presented at CAV (slides) and the SYNT workshop (slides). The written report, including descriptions of the benchmarks, tools, and results, is available on arXiv.
Update: the report for SYNTCOMP 2014 has now appeared in STTT (Software Tools for Technology Transfer).
The winners of the 4 tracks are:
AbsSynthe from R. Brenguier, G.A. Pérez, J.-F. Raskin, O. Sankur (UL de Bruxelles)
Demiurge from R. Könighofer (TU Graz), M. Seidl (JKU Linz)
Simple BDD Solver from L. Ryzhyk (University of Toronto, NICTA) and A. Walker (NICTA)
Basil from R. Ehlers (University of Bremen, DFKI Bremen)
As part of the FLoC Olympic Games, every track winner received a Kurt Gödel medal in silver, handed over by Ed Clarke:
(f.l.t.r.: Leonid Ryzhyk, Rüdiger Ehlers, Ed Clarke, Guillermo A. Pérez, Martina Seidl, Swen Jacobs, Thomas Krennwallner)

Detailed information on the first competition can be found here. If you are interested, you can have a look at our rules, and download a testing framework that contains a simple reference implementation of a synthesis tool that handles the competition format, along with a set of benchmarks and a model checker to verify results.
