[DMANET] Doctoral Program at CP2014: Call for Papers


Call for papers

at the 20th International Conference on
Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming
DP-CP 2014

Lyon, France, September 8-12, 2014



As part of the 2014 International Conference on Principles and
Practice of Constraint Programming, we are inviting PhD and MSc students
to apply for the Doctoral Program (DP). The DP is an opportunity for
current students to meet each other as well as researchers in the field.
Participation in the Doctoral Program will involve:

* Presentation of the student's work via both talk and poster.
* Discussions with a mentor with similar research interests.
* DP dinner as social event exclusively for students.
* Invited talks by renowned researchers on topics relevant to young

Financial Support
There are funds available to support students by providing free conference
registration and free ticket to the doctoral program dinner. Priority will
be given based on the quality of the submissions.

The program is open to all PhD and outstanding MSc students involved in
Constraint Programming or related fields at any level. The submitted
paper should contain original unpublished work which is primarily
the work of the student. It can either be completed or in progress.
We will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, has
already been published in a journal or formal conference proceedings.
This restriction does not apply to work that has appeared in workshops
and similar specialised presentations with a limited audience and
without archival proceedings and to papers published in 2014. Papers
that have been submitted elsewhere but not yet published and papers
published in 2014 are acceptable; if this is the case, please mention it
on the DP submission. Please feel free to contact the chairs at if there are any questions on eligibility.
