[DMANET] [CPAIOR 2014] Call for Workshops

Call for Workshops

Eleventh International Conference on Integration of Artificial
Intelligence and Operations Research Techniques in Constraint

CPAIOR series: http://www.andrew.cmu.edu/user/vanhoeve/cpaior/

The CP-AI-OR 2014 conference organizers invite proposals for the
workshop program.

The aim of the conference is to bring together interested researchers
from Constraint Programming (CP), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and
Operations Research (OR) to present new techniques or new applications
in combinatorial optimization and to provide an opportunity for
researchers in one area to learn about techniques in the others. A
main objective of this conference series is also to give these
researchers the opportunity to show how the integration of techniques
from different fields can lead to interesting results on large and
complex problems.

CP-AI-OR 2014 workshops will provide an informal setting where
workshop participants will have the opportunity to discuss specific
technical topics in an atmosphere that facilitates the active exchange
of ideas. It is an opportunity to disseminate work in progress or to
promote new and emerging areas at the intersection of CP, AI, and OR.

All workshops will take place on May 19, 2014 at the site of the main
conference. Workshops can be proposed for a full or a half day. The
internal format of the workshop will be determined by the organisers
of each workshop.
