NordConsNet: the Nordic Network for researchers and practitioners of Constraint programming
The NordConsNet Workshop 2017 was held on 22 May 2017 in Uppsala, Sweden: call for participation.
The NordConsNet Workshop 2018 will be held in May 2018 at Jeppesen in Gothenburg, Sweden: a link will come here in due time.
Constraint programming (CP) is a rather novel set of methods and tools for modelling and solving constraint problems, in a way orthogonal and complementary to other optimisation technologies (such as ILP, MILP, SAT, etc). Constraint problems arise in many application domains, such as scheduling, rostering, planning, configuration, control, design, biology, finance, transport, logistics, and so on. Decisions have to be made (that is, the values of unknowns have to be determined) so that some constraints are satisfied and, optionally, some cost / benefit is minimised / maximised. (Read more)
