CSCLP 2011: Annual ERCIM Workshop

About the Workshop
==================

This workshop constitutes the 15th meeting of the ERCIM Working Group on
Constraints (http://wiki.ercim.eu/wg/Constraints). The programme includes
distinguished invited speakers and ample time for discussion. The registration
fee is only 105, and 80 for students.

CSCLP 2011 will be hosted by the University of York (http://www.york.ac.uk/) in
its medieval building, the Kings Manor
(http://www.york.ac.uk/admin/presspr/kmanor), located centrally in York
(http://www.york360.co.uk/). York is a scenic, walled city with a Viking and
Roman history. The social programme will include, at no extra charge, a tour of
York and a dinner in the 18th century Assembly Rooms
(http://www.yorkconservationtrust.org/properties/AssemblyRooms/AssemblyRooms.html),
probably the earliest neo-classical building in Europe.

Further information can be found on the workshop website:
http://csclp2011.cs.st-andrews.ac.uk. Please note the workshop was originally
planned to run for 2.5 days on 12-14 April, but the final half-day has now been
cancelled.

Programme
=========

We are very pleased to announce that invited speakers Holger H. Hoos and
Torsten Schaub will be giving talks at CSCLP 2011:

Holger H. Hoos

Torsten Schaub
Answer Set Programming, the Solving Paradigm for Knowledge Representation and Reasoning

Apart from the invited speakers, the programme will mainly consist of talks
given by authors of accepted papers. A list of accepted papers will appear on
the website shortly.

The workshop programme will include lightning talks, described in the following
section. Also, ample discussion time will be integrated into the workshop programme.

about research directions, results, techniques or new applications of
constraints. The talks will be 10-15 minutes long (depending on scheduling
constraints).

Anyone wishing to give a lightning talk should email a title and short abstract
to Alan Frisch (frisch@cs.york.ac.uk).
