                       Seventh International Conference on
               Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming

                  November 26-December 1, 2001, Paphos, Cyprus


                           CALL FOR TECHNICAL PAPERS

    CP-2001 will be held in conjuction with ICLP-2001, the 17th
    International Conference on Logic Programming. In addition to the
    Technical programme, we are pleased to announce two new additions:
    the Innovative Applications programme, and the Doctoral programme

    Technical programme:

    The Technical programme is concerned with all aspects of computing with
    constraints including: algorithms, applications, environments,
    languages, models, systems. Papers are solicited from any of the
    disciplines concerned with constraints, including: artificial
    intelligence, combinatorial algorithms, computational logic, concurrent
    computation, databases, discrete mathematics, operations research,
    programming languages, symbolic computation.

    Papers may concern any of the domains using constraints, including:
    computational linguistics, configuration, decision support, design,
    diagnosis, graphics, hardware verification, molecular biology,
    planning, program analysis, qualitative reasoning, real-time systems,
    resource allocation, robotics, scheduling, software engineering,
    temporal reasoning, type inference, vision, visualization, user
    interfaces. Papers that discuss modelling issues, or novel reasoning
    methods are especially welcome.

    Innovative Applications programme:

    The Innovative Applications is a forum for practitioners and end users
    of constraint technology, and an interface between them and
    researchers in constraints. We welcome submission in, but not limited
    to, the following topics: surveys of an application area, including
    problems to which constraint programming may be applied, experience
    in applying constraint programming, and areas where further research
    is required to meet industrial needs; software engineering aspect of
    constraint programming, including constraints elicitation, modelling
    and solving ill-defined applications; solutions of constraint problems
    using multiple solving techniques, including cooperative algorithms,
    hybrid solver configurations, and embedding constraint techniques in
    logic programming; the evaluation and comparison of approaches,
    including operational research vs. constraint programming, and
    stochastic vs. complete search techniques. More details about the
    Innovative Applications programme are posted at

    Doctoral programme:

    A special programme for PhD students will be held alongside the
    conference. Students will be able to present their work and receive
    feedback from more senior members of the community. In addition,
    there will be tutorials about research skills and career issues.
    Students attending the doctoral programme will also present their
    work in the poster session of the mainconference. We hope to be
    able to announce details about financial support for participation
    in the doctoral programme in the near future. These and other details
    about the doctoral programme are posted at

    Submission to Technical and Innovative Applications programmes:

       Submission of papers: May 14, 2001
       Notification of acceptance: July 16, 2001
       Camera-ready papers due: August 20, 2001

    Papers must be original and not submitted for publication elsewhere.
    Full length papers can be up to 15 proceedings pages, and poster papers
    can be up to 5 pages. Details about how to submit papers electronically
    posted at http://www.cs.york.ac.uk/cp2001/start/
    The proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture
    Notes in Computer Science series.

    Workshops and Tutorials:

    A separate announcement about workshops and tutorials will be made
    by the Workshop and Tutorial Chair, Thomas Schiex.

    Conference Location:

    The conference will be held in the 5 star Coral Beach Hotel and Resort
    (http://www.coral.com.cy/) in an idyllic beachfront setting near to the
    town of Paphos. Paphos is included in the official UNESCO list of
    and natural treasures of world heritage, and is described as
    "..Home To Aphrodite, Adonis, Dionysus, and Lucky Mortals".
