Syntax-guided synthesis (SyGuS) is the computational problem of finding an implementation (f) that meets both a semantic constraint given by a logical formula (\varphi) in a background theory (\mathbb{T}), and a syntactic constraint given by a grammar (G), which specifies the allowed set of candidate implementations. Such a synthesis problem can be formally defined in the SyGuS input format (SyGuS-IF), a language that is built on top of SMT-LIB.

The syntax-guided synthesis competition (SyGuS-Comp) is an effort to facilitate, bring together and accelerate research and development of efficient solvers for SyGuS by providing a platform for evaluating different synthesis techniques on a comprehensive set of benchmarks. In the 5th SyGuS-Comp, five solvers competed on over $1600$ benchmarks across various tracks. This paper presents and analyses the results of this year’s (2018) SyGuS competition.
