Constraints have emerged as the basis of a representational and computational paradigm that draws from many disciplines and can be brought to bear on many problem domains. The track is concerned with all aspects of computing with constraints including algorithms, applications, environments, languages, models, and systems.

We also solicit papers from any domain employing constraints, including computational linguistics, configuration, decision support, design, diagnosis, graphics, hardware verification, molecular biology, planning, qualitative reasoning, real-time systems, resource allocation, robotics, scheduling, software engineering, temporal reasoning, vision, visualization, and user interfaces.

Papers that bridge disciplines or combine theory and practice or discuss novel reasoning methods are especially welcome. A special attention is focused around the use of constraint technologies in the networking, wireless and internet fields.

Delivery & Submissions

We would like to invite authors to submit papers in the standard FLAIRS style (see the FLAIRS web-site for details) on research on constraint solving and programming, with particular emphasis on assessing the current state of the art and identifying future directions.

Selected papers, of sufficiently high quality, will be selected to appear in a special issue of the International Journal on Artificial Intelligence Tools (IJAIT) Journal.

Important Dates

Deadline paper submissions October 25, 2002 - Extended to November 8th
Notification of acceptance January 7, 2003
