In this paper we discuss the design of an Inductive Logic Programming (ILP) system in Answer Set Programming (ASP) and more in general the problem of integrating the two. We show how to formalise the learning problem as an ASP program and provide details on how the optimisation features of modern solvers can be adapted to derive preferred hypotheses.
