Call for Workshops


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

cpaior series:

IBM Research, Yorktown Heights, NY, USA

MAY 18 - 22, 2013

Dear colleagues,
the CPAIOR 2013 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.

CPAIOR 2013 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, 2013 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.
