Call for Participation
Ninth International Conference on
Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming
September 29 - October 3, 2003
Kinsale, County Cork, Ireland
The CP conference is the annual international conference on constraint
programming, and it is concerned with all aspects of computing with
constraints, including: algorithms, applications, environments,
languages, models and systems. CP 2003 includes a technical programme,
where presentations of theoretical and application papers, as well as
invited papers and advanced tutorials, aim at describing the best
results and techniques in the state of the art of constraint
programming. Moreover, CP 2003 continues the tradition of the CP
doctoral programme, in which a group of Ph.D. students present their
work, listen to tutorials on career and ethical issues, and discuss
their work with senior researchers via a mentoring scheme. Finally,
there will also be a number of workshops, where researchers will be
able to meet in an informal setting and discuss their most recent
ideas with their peers.
This year the CP conference will be held in Kinsale, Ireland, from
September 29 to October 3, 2003. Kinsale is a very pictoresque village
over the ocean in the south of Ireland, close to the city of Cork.
CP 2003 received a record number of 182 submitted papers, from which
the Program Committee chose 47 accepted papers, that we believe will
make a very lively and high quality program. The technical program of
CP 2003 will be held from Tuesday to Friday and will include four
invited talks (by Henry Kautz and Bart Selman, Tuomas Sandholm, Mark
Wallace, and Toby Walsh), four advanced tutorials, a demo session with
eigth demos, the presentation of the 47 accepted full papers and one
poster session for 35 posters.
CP 2003 will also include ten workshops, to be held on Monday, and a
doctoral programme, to be held in parallel with the technical program,
which includes four doctoral tutorials, 12 student presentations, and
one student poster session.
Finally, CP 2003 is co-located with an Eclipse summer school, that
will be held on Sunday, September 28, at the conference site.
We will also have a very interesting social program, including an
opening reception, a banquet, and two excursions in the countryside of
Ireland and over the ocean.
The details of the technical and social programs, as well as the
workshop program, tutorials, demo session and doctoral program, can be
found, together with the registration form and information about
hotels, at the URL http://www.cs.ucc.ie/cp2003/
Looking forward to seeing many of you in Kinsale for CP 2003.
