Fifth International Conference on
Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming
October 11-15, 1999
Alexandria, Virginia, USA

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, and 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.

Important dates:
Submissions: April 16, 1999
Notification of acceptance: July 2, 1999
Camera-ready papers due: July 31, 1999

Submissions: Submission should be done by sending two emails to
cp99@comp.nus.edu.sg The first email should have the subject
"CP99 Abstract:" followed by the paper title. The body of this
first email should contain the title, authors and a short
abstract of the paper, all in plain text. The second email
should have subject "CP99 Paper:" followed by the paper title.
The body of this second email should contain a postscript file,
in portable format. All authors must be prepared to send a
hardcopy by fast airmail upon request.

For authors who are unable to submit electronically, five paper
copies can be mailed to the program chair, to arrive by the
submission deadline.

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.

Conference site: The conference will be held at Old Town
Alexandria which is just minutes from Washington, D.C.
by car, bus or metro. Old Town Alexandria is a colonial
era seaport, with a revitalized two-mile-long waterfront.
It still has cobblestone streets and many 18th century
buildings. This quaint historic town features a centralized
shopping district with numerous galleries and boutiques
within eight blocks from the hotel.

Workshops: Workshops are planned for Friday, Oct 15, 1999.
Workshop proposals can be submitted to the workshop chair
(to be announced soon) by approximately March 15, 1999.
Details will be available soon.
