                PRELIMINARY CALL FOR PAPERS -- CP98
---------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Fourth International Conference on
          Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming

                 Pisa, Italy, October 26--30, 1998
                http://www.di.unipi.it/~bista/cp98/
---------------------------------------------------------------------

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, symbolic computation. We also solicit
papers 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 that bridge disciplines or combine theory and practice are
especially welcome.

Conference Chair:
-----------------
Francesca Rossi, University of Pisa, rossi@di.unipi.it

Paper submissions:
------------------
Authors should submit original full papers of no more than 15
pages by April 24. Submission should be done by sending an email
containing the title, authors and abstract of the paper in plain
text, plus a postscript file to both program chairs. For authors
who are unable to submit electronically, five paper copies can be
mailed to one of the adresses above. In that case the package
should arrive no later than April 24.

Publication:
------------
The proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture
Notes in Computer Science series. A special issue of the Constraints
journal (Kluwer Academic Publishers) is planned, based on selected papers.

Important dates:
----------------
-- April 24, 1998: paper submissions
-- July 2, 1988: acceptance decisions
-- July 31, 1998: camera-ready copy due

Sponsorships:
-------------
CP98 is jointly sponsored by ILOG (France), SINTEF (Norway), Prologia
(France), and Compulog Net. Other sponsorships are pending.
