CoProD v 2.011, Constraint Programming and Decision Making Workshop

CoProD’11 is the fourth edition of CoProD. It will be held at UTEP, El Paso, Texas, on March 17, 2011

Constraint programming techniques are important components of intelligent systems. They constitute a declarative and efficient methodology to represent and solve many practical problems. They have been applied successfully to a number of fields, such as scheduling of air traffic, software engineering, networks security, chemistry, and biology. Despite the proved usefulness of these techniques, they are still under-utilized in real-life applications. One reason is the perceived lack of effective communication between constraint programming experts and domain practitioners about constraints, in general, and their use in decision making, in particular.

CoProD’11 will be held on March 17, 2011, right before NAFIPS’11 (March 18-20) at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), Texas
