The Twenty-Sixth Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming CP 2021 (https://cp2021.a4cp.org/) will take place in Montpellier, France from October 25 to 29, 2021. Montpellier is in the south of France, only 11km away from the Mediterranean and easily accessible by plane and rail. See details in the local information page (https://cp2021.a4cp.org/local.html)

The CP conference series concerns all aspects of computing with constraints, including: theory, algorithms, environments, languages, models, systems, and applications. It welcomes submissions that advance the state of the art for the underlying technologies as well as papers that explore the role of constraint programming within other disciplines such as, for instance: operation research, machine learning and verification.

The CP 2021 programme will include presentations of high-quality scientific papers and tutorials on both theory and applications. Invited talks will describe important topics relevant to the field. The CP programme also welcomes workshops for discussing in-progress work and provides support to students through its doctoral program, which includes a dedicated one day doctoral conference, mentorship by experienced researchers and more.


The conference features a main /Technical Track/, and /Thematic/ tracks:

  • Application
  • CP and Machine Learning
  • CP and Operations Research

Submissions Instructions

Paper submission is via EasyChair (CP 2021) (https://easychair.org/account/signin_timeout#). Each submission should be directed to the suitable track.

CP21 is switching from Springer to LIPIcs for its proceedings. It is therefore crucial for authors to follow the guidelines provided below and not start from an old style file that is appropriate for Springer only.

The submissions should be submitted in the form of a PDF file following LIPIcs guidelines (https://submission.dagstuhl.de/documentation/authors). The site linked above has examples and the necessary style files. Please read the directions attentively as specific LaTeX packages are prohibited or restricted.

Other Informations

Questions about the paper submission process may be addressed to the Program Chair Laurent Michel ldm+cp21@engr.uconn.edu.
