Call for Papers


Fifth International Workshop on Bin Packing and Placement Constraints

May 19th 2014, Cork, Ireland,

associated to the 11th International Conference on the Integration of Artificial
Intelligence and Operations Research techniques in Constraint Programming

__ Scope __

Bin Packing and Placement problems are an old but still challenging
topic that has been tackled with different approaches.

On the one hand, the aim of this workshop is to share recent progress
made on pure problems by using any technique (or the mix) like Mixed
Integer Linear Programming, Constraint Programming, Local Search or
Evolutionary algorithms.

On the other hand, the aim is to present challenging problems formulated
and/or solved by these methods, or challenging extensions that have a
practical interest and for which pure methods do not directly work.

Submitted papers can be

  • Extended Abstracts of new results or
  • Abstract of ongoing works
  • System presentations (with demos at the workshop)
  • Summaries of already accepted or recently published results

on any topic concerning bin packing and placement constraints.
