Combining Constraint Solving with Mining and Learning


Submissions by March 20th, 2014

In recent years there is a growing interest in the potential of
integrating the field of constraint solving with machine learning and
data mining.  Until now, these fields have evolved quite
independently. Nevertheless, complex mining and learning tasks can
often be formalized in terms of constraints that need to be
satisfied. This methodology is becoming increasingly compelling, as
the community is progressively moving from addressing relatively
simple tasks on tabular data to complex problems on structured
data. The use of machine learning and data mining techniques to
enhance constraint solving is equally promising, and only starting to
be explored. Consequently, there is a mutual benefit in the study of
these approaches, that can lead to advances in both fields.

This special issue aims to collect relevant contributions on all
aspects of the integration of constraint solving with machine learning
and data mining. The following is a non-exhaustive list of possible

- data mining/machine learning using constraint solving techniques

- learning with constraints

- constraint-based languages for data mining/machine learning

- preference learning for constraint solving

- learning and automated constraint modeling/reformulation

- constraint acquisition

- interactive constraint solving

- solver portfolio optimisation

- machine learning in search

- integrating learning and search

- automated parameter optimization / algorithm configuration
