Papers Submission (closed)
Please note that submissions are now closed, as the deadline as passed.
Papers must be submitted using
here to visit the CP 2010 easychair page.
The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in
their LNCS series and so authors must follow the instructions at
Call for papers
Call for application papers
Papers are solicited from any area involved with constraints.
- Contributions of research papers may be theoretical, empirical, or some combination of the two. The program committee is instructed to judge each type of contribution equally, and contains theoretical and empirical experts suited to assess papers of all types.
- Reports on successful applications of constraint technology are particularly encouraged. Applications Track papers will be reviewed to the same quality as other papers. However, significant practical value, or the demonstrated utility of constraints technology, will be decisive for Applications Track submissions.
- Long papers are limited to 15 LNCS pages.
- Short papers are also encouraged, limited to 8 LNCS pages.
- Short papers are of the same status as long papers.
- They will be reviewed to the same standards of quality as full papers, but will naturally contain less quantity of new material.
- Short papers will be eligible for the best paper prize and allocated presentation slots on the same basis as long papers.
- Authors of papers rejected as long papers will not be asked to resubmit in short paper form.
- Multiple submission is disallowed.
- Your paper should not have appeared in, be accepted for, or be under review for another peer reviewed conference or journal.
- Papers which have appeared previously at workshops or other meetings of lower status than a conference are allowed, as are papers which have only appeared in conferences in highly shortened form (e.g. short posters at some conferences.)
- Reviewers are instructed that contributions must be treated as new if they have only appeared in paper(s) by the same authors in acceptable outlets (as defined by the previous point).
- If in doubt about a given paper, you should contact the program chair, David Cohen.
- There is no poster track. Short and long papers will be accepted in the format submitted, or rejected. Depending on the needs of the schedule, some papers may be presented in poster format, but this decision will be independent of quality, and no indication will be given in the proceedings of the distinction.
- Submission is not anonymous.
- Reviewing is anonymous.
- There will be an opportunity to respond to reviewer's comments before decisions are made.
- Submission should be in the form of a PDF file of the correct length. Optionally, you may submit supporting material as an appendix in zip format. This might contain, for example, full versions of proofs or detailed experimental results. Reviewers may use supporting material to help them, but are not required to refer to it.
- Authors may designate papers as being student papers. By doing so the authors are declaring that the original work and the writing of the paper is principally that of PhD or other students. There is a prize for the best student paper.
- The submission site will be closed at approximately 12 noon BST=GMT+1, Monday April 19, 2010. (BST = British Summer Time = GMT+1/UTC+1). This is just after the last time it is April 18 anywhere in the inhabited world.
- You are not required to submit abstracts before the main deadline.
- Paper submission is via EasyChair at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cp2010
- For any queries on the paper submission process, please contact the Program Chair, David Cohen, on the email d.cohen.cp2010 AT gmail.com.
