SYNTCOMP 2019: Call for Benchmarks and Solvers

We are preparing for the annual reactive synthesis competition, which will run in time for the results to be presented at CAV 2019 and SYNT 2019.

The competition will run mostly in the same way as in 2016–2018, but will now be managed and ran on StarExec. If you plan on submitting a benchmark or solver, please go to, create a user, and contact us (, to be added to the SYNTCOMP space. There are main tracks for safety specifications in AIGER format and for LTL specifications in TLSF, each separated into subtracks for realizability checking and synthesis, and into sequential and parallel execution modes. Tools will be evaluated with respect to the number of solved benchmarks, and with respect to the size of their solutions.

* Call for Participation: SYNTCOMP tutorial @ ETAPS *

This year, we are organizing a tutorial on the state of the art of reactive synthesis and the SYNTCOMP: The target audience of this short tutorial (3.5 hours) are researchers that are interested in the state of the art regarding theory and implementations of the automatic synthesis of reactive systems. The tutorial will be separated into two parts: the first part will give a background on the history and the theoretical foundations of reactive synthesis and SYNTCOMP. The second part will go in-depth on one of the successful approaches and present its implementation in the tool BoSy (see

* Call for Benchmarks *

We are looking for new synthesis benchmarks to include into SYNTCOMP, both in AIGER and in TLSF. New benchmarks can be included in SYNTCOMP 2019 if they are correctly uploaded (i.e. pass syntax checks) into StarExec by June 1, 2019. Contact us (see above) if you have any questions regarding scope or format of benchmarks.

* Call for Solvers *

Solvers for all tracks of the competition will be accepted until June 1. Because of our move to StarExec, you will be allowed to update your solver as many times as needed. Your solver will be included in SYNTCOMP 2019 if it is correctly uploaded (i.e. passes a test run) into StarExec by June 1, 2019.

* Communication *

If you are interested in submitting a solver, please have a look at the pages for Rules, Schedule, Submission, and FAQ. If you have any further questions or comments, please write to and
