To be held at the 18th International Conference on the Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming (CP 2012) in Quebec City, Canada, on Monday 8 October 2012.
Constraint Programming (CP) is a powerful technology to model and solve combinatorial problems, which are ubiquitous in academia and industry. The last ten years or so have witnessed significant research devoted to modelling and solving problems with constraints. CP is now a mature field and has been successfully used for tackling a wide range of real-life complex applications. However, such a technology is currently accessible to only a small number of experts. For CP to be more widely used by non-experts, more research effort is needed in order to ease the use of the CP technology. We solicit original papers that contribute to widen the use of the CP technology.
Workshop topics include (but are not limited to):
The workshop will be held as a full-day or half-day workshop. Please note that workshop-participants need to be registered for the workshop. Past events of this workshop series can be found here.
