Call for Tutorial and Workshop Proposals
The CP'2001 Program Committee invites proposals for the Tutorial and Workshop
Program to be held in Cyprus. Tutorials will
take place during the technical program. Workshops are planned for Saturday,
December 1, 2001.
CP'2001 tutorials are ideally targeted at the whole constraint
community and should give a state of the art description of a field of
research related to constraint programming or of a large area of
application. Tutorials may address theoretical and/or practical aspect
of constraint solving. Typical subjects, without any limitation are:
numerical CSP, global constraints, n-ary constraints, soft
constraints, mathematical programming, dynamic programming and
constraints, cooperation between methods, local search,
functional/concurrent/logic constraint programming, areas of
application (eg. bioinformatics)...
CP'2001 workshops will provide an informal setting where workshop
participants will have the opportunity to discuss specific technical
topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas. It
is an opportunity to disseminate work in progress or to promote new
and emerging areas within the field of constraints. The topics of the
workshops can cover any area related to constraints and any related
The format of the workshop will be determined by the organizers.
Workshops can vary in length with an expected duration ranging from
half a day up to one day. Having two or three co-organizers for a
workshop is strongly advised. Workshop attendees must pay the CP/ICLP
workshop registration fee.
