Fourth International Conference on
Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming
to the web site of the fourth international
conference on principles and practice of constraint
programming, that will take place in
the italian city which is world-wide famous for its
October 26 - 30, 1998
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,
biology, planning, qualitative reasoning, real-time systems,
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.
