1st Workshop on Constraint Programming and Operation Research Applications (CPORA'16)

Gdansk, Poland, 11 - 14 September, 2016


The aim of the CPORA-Workshop on Constraint Programming and Operation Research Applications is to bring together interested researchers from constraint programming/constraint logic programming (CP/CLP), operations research (OR) and artificial intelligence (AI) to present new techniques or new applications in decision support, combinatorial optimization, modeling and control processes arising in manufacturing, transportation, telecommunication, computer networks, logistic systems etc. and to provide an opportunity for researchers in one area to learn about techniques in the others. The aim of this workshop is share ideas, projects, researches results, models, experiences etc. associated with CP/CLP/OR/AI and to give researchers the opportunity to show how the integration of techniques from different fields can lead to interesting results on large and complex problems. Additionally, we would like to stimulate the communication between researchers working on different fields and practitioners who need reliable and efficient modelling and computational methods for industrial and business processes.

Contributions containing of both: the theoretical and practical results obtained in this area are welcome.
