CFP: Twenty-Fourth Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming

Call for Papers – CP 2018

The Twenty-Fourth Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming will take place in Lille, France, 27-31 August 2018.

The CP conference series concerns all aspects of computing with constraints, including: theory, algorithms, environments, languages, models, systems, and applications.

The CP 2018 programme will include presentations of high-quality scientific papers and tutorials on both theory and applications. Invited talks will describe important topics relevant to the field. There are also workshops and a doctoral program for students.


The conference features a main Technical Track, an Applications Track, and various thematic tracks, which include:

  • CP & Data Science
  • CP & Operations Research
  • CP & Music
  • Testing and Verification
  • Multiagent and Parallel CP
  • CP, Optimization, & Power System Management

Papers are submitted to individual tracks. They would normally relate to CP technology, but submissions that deal with constraint solving and are of potential interest to the CP community are also invited. The thematic tracks, in particular, are intended to reach out to researchers beyond the CP community. Each track has a dedicated chair and subcommittee to ensure that reviewers have the relevant domain expertise.


Paper submission is via EasyChair, and reviewing is double blind. Please see the conference website for further details and a complete list of tracks.
