DIMACS Workshop on Constraint Programming and Large Scale Discrete Optimization

September 14 - 17, 1998
DIMACS Center, CoRE Building, Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ

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.
