CP 2010
Sixteenth International Conference on
Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming
6-10th September 2010
St-Andrews, Scotland

There have been several requests to move the deadline for paper submission and this has now been done.  No further extensions will be possible.

Paper submission 19th April 2010, 12 Noon BST = GMT + 1

Paper notification 3rd June 2010

The CP conference is the annual international conference on constraint programming. It is concerned with all aspects of computing with constraints, including theory, algorithms, applications, environments, languages, models, and systems.

CP 2010 includes a Technical Program, where presentations of research and application papers and invited talks will describe 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 program.

Papers are solicited from any area involved with constraints. The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Full-length papers are limited to 15 LNCS pages. Short papers are also encouraged, limited to 8 pages. These 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.

The best papers at CP 2010 will be invited to a special track at IJCAI-11 featuring papers from specialized area conferences. They will also be eligible for an expedited reviewing and decision process for publication of an extended version in JAIR. Many authors presenting at this conference would naturally expect to publish their work in the Constraints journal and it has been agreed that every paper accepted in the technical program of the conference will be eligible for an expedited reviewing and decision process for publication of an extended version in 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.

Further information is provided on the conference website. Author instructions will be available on the submission page.
