Call for Application Papers

CP 2012 Eighteenth International Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming

October 8-12, 2012
Québec City, Canada

Deadline for Abstract Submissions: 23:59 EDT, April 19, 2012


CP 2012 again wishes to promote the presentation of CP applications. We especially look for industrial and academic users of constraint technology to submit papers on completed or on-going practical projects. Papers comparing constraint technology to other optimization techniques (MIP, local search, SAT, etc.) with a sound experimental evaluation are also encouraged.

Papers which clearly define users' benefits, describe the required effort to build the application and the time frame in which it was delivered, will match the acceptance criteria most closely. The novelty of the application domain, while potentially a plus, is not the only deciding acceptance criterion.

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Full paper submissions are limited to 15 LNCS pages plus references, while Short paper submissions are limited to 8 pages plus references. Short papers will be reviewed to the same standards of quality as full papers, but will naturally contain less quantity of new materials.

Selected papers submitted to the Application track, which receive excellent reviews from the referees will be invited to submit a revised paper for fast track review in the Constraints journal.
