### DIMACS Workshop on Constraint Programming and Large Scale Discrete Optimization

#### September 14 - 17, 1998

DIMACS Center, CoRE Building, Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ

**Organizers: **
**Eugene C. Freuder**, University of New Hampshire, Computer Science Department, ecf@cs.unh.edu
**Richard J. Wallace**, University of New Hampshire, Computer Science Department, rjw@cs.unh.edu

Presented under the auspices of the Special Year on Large Scale Discrete Optimization.

The Special Year CFP indicates that:

"This special year is motivated by developments in the past ten years.
There have been three simultaneous advances: at the algorithmic level, with
new and interesting algorithms for solving large scale discrete problems
both exactly and approximately; at the implementation level, providing
codes and systems for solving such problems; and at the practical level,
with interests in the fast solution of real world problems. Examples of
such applications include airline crew scheduling, chemical process design,
and telecommunication network design. Our goal in this year is to unite
these groups. The confluence of exciting recent work on approximation and
other algorithms and greatly improved software/hardware for optimization
makes large scale discrete optimization a practical, useful approach to
solving problems of practical interest."

For more information on the special year program see: http://dimacs.rutgers.edu/SpecialYears/1998_1999/index.html

The Workshop is interested in all aspects of constraint programming related
to large scale discrete optimization, including contributions from
artificial intelligence, discrete mathematics, operations research and
programming languages. It is interested in both theory and practice.
Optimization should be taken broadly to include, for example, optimization
in the presence of uncertainty or change.

Attendance will be by invitation.
