It has become a tradition at CADE to run a competition for first-order automated theorem provers based on the TPTP problem library. This competition (CASC) [SuSu96] aims at fully automatic ATP systems and provides various categories dedicated to diffirent problem classes of rst-order logic. The number of problems solved and the runtime is used to assess the winners in the individual categories of the competition.
