                              CP99
  Fifth International Conference on Principles and Practice of
                     Constraint Programming

         Call For CP99 Post-Conference Workshop Proposals

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 Fifth International
Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming (CP99)
will be held on October 11-15, 1999 at Alexandra, Virginia, USA and is
the main conference devoted to all aspects of computing with constraints
including: algorithms, applications, environments, languages, models,
systems. In conjunction with the main conference, several post-conference
workshops are planned at the end of the conference on October 16, 1999.

The role of the post-conference workshops is to provide a platform
for the presentation of preliminary work or novel ideas in a less
formal way than the conference itself. It is an opportunity to
disseminate work in progress, particularly so for new researchers.
It also provides a venue for presenting more specialised topics and
opportunities for more intensive discussions and exchange of ideas.
The topics of the workshops can cover any area related to constraints
and any related cross-disciplinary areas.

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.

How to Propose a Workshop:
--------------------------

Proposals for workshops should be in English and between two to four pages

    designated contact person as the workshop coordinator
  * a preliminary plan/schedule for organizing the workshop
