CP'13 call for paper

CP 2013

Nineteenth International Conference on

Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming

September 16-20, 2013

Uppsala, Sweden


Deadline for Abstract Submissions: April 17, 2013


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.

CP 2013 includes a technical program, where presentations of research papers as well as invited talks aim at describing the best results and techniques in the state-of-the-art of constraint programming. One day of Workshops precedes the conference. Tutorials and the Doctoral Program will form part of the main conference. Papers are solicited from all disciplines concerned with constraints.

Applications Track

Reports on successful applications of constraint technology are particularly encouraged and are subject to special Applications track acceptance criteria.

Conference Proceedings

The conference proceedings (confirmation pending) will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Full paper submissions are limited to 15 LNCS pages plus references, while Short paper submissions are limited to 8 pages plus references. Short papers will be reviewed to the same standards of quality as full papers, but will naturally contain less quantity of new material. Short papers will have the same status as long papers and be eligible for the best paper prize.

Further information will be provided on the conference webpage.

Post-conference Journal Publication

Selected papers submitted to the main conference and application track which receive excellent reviews from the referees will be invited to submit a revised paper for fast track review in the Constraints journal.
