20th International Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming


The CP conference is the annual international conference on constraint programming. It is concerned with all aspects of computing with constraints, including theory, algorithms, environments, languages, models, systems, and applications such as decision making, resource allocation, and agreement technologies.

The CP 2014 programme will include presentations of high quality scientific research papers and applications of constraints technology. A number of invited talks will also be presented that will describe important topics relevant to the field. As well as the usual workshop, tutorial and doctoral student programmes, this year we will introduce a new journal presentation track in which important results that have appeared in journals over the previous year will be presented. For details of the specifics of each component of the conference programme please refer to the relevant calls listed below.

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. It will contain the accepted papers that appear in the scientific/technical and application tracks, as well as abstracts of accepted contributions appearing in the journal presentation track.

Since this year's conference marks the 20th year of CP, a special anniversary celebration will feature as part of the programme.
