Fourth International Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming

Leaning Tower of Pisa

Pisa, Italy
October 26 - 30, 1998

Welcome to the web site of the fourth international conference on principles and practice of constraint programming, that will take place in Pisa, the italian city which is world-wide famous for its leaning tower.

Scope of the Conference

Constraints have emerged as the basis of a representational and computational paradigm that draws from many disciplines and can be brought to bear on many problem domains. The conference is concerned with all aspects of computing with constraints including: algorithms, applications, environments, languages, models, systems. Contributions are welcome from any discipline concerned with constraints, including: artificial intelligence, combinatorial algorithms, computational logic, concurrent computation, databases, discrete mathematics, operations research, programming languages, and symbolic computation. Contributions are welcome from any domain employing constraints, including: computational linguistics, configuration, decision support, design, diagnosis, graphics, hardware verification, molecular biology, planning, qualitative reasoning, real-time systems, resource allocation, robotics, scheduling, software engineering, temporal reasoning, vision, visualization, user interfaces. Papers are especially welcome that bridge disciplines or combine theory and practice.

This is the fourth conference of this series. Previous conferences have been held in Cassis, France (CP95), Boston, USA (CP96), and Linz, Austria (CP97). More information about these conferences and related workshops can be found at the CP web site.
