The study of various notions of equivalence between logic programs in the area of answer-set programming (ASP) gained increasing interest in recent years. The main reason for this undertaking is the failure of ordinary equivalence between answer-set programs to yield a eplacement property similar to the one of classical logic. Although many refined program correspondence notions have been introduced in the ASP literature so far, most of these notions were studied for propositional programs only, which limits their practical usability as concrete programming applications require the use of variables. In this paper, we address this issue and introduce a general framework for specifying parameterised notions of program equivalence for non-ground disjunctive logic programs under the answer-set semantics. Our framework is a generalisation of a similar one defined previously for the propositional case and allows the specification of several equivalence notions extending well-known ones studied for ropositional programs. We provide semantic characterisations for instances of our framework generalising uniform equivalence, and we study decidability and complexity aspects.
