ModRef 2016 : 15th International Workshop on Constraint Modelling and Reformulation
Call For Papers
AIMS AND SCOPE:
Constraint Programming (CP) is a powerful set of techniques to model
and solve combinatorial problems, which are ubiquitous in academia and
industry. CP has been successfully used for tackling a wide range of
real-life complex applications, but finding a good model of a given
problem often requires considerable expertise and effort. Recent
years have witnessed significant research devoted to modelling and
solving problems with constraints. The key goals of this workshop are
to extend the understanding of constraint modelling, to automate
aspects of modelling or model reformulation, to extend the reach of
constraint solvers on difficult problems, and to ease the task of
modelling. Workshop topics include but are not limited to:
* Application papers describing interesting problems and ways of
* Contributions to understanding modelling that could guide the manual
or automatic formulation of models.
* Identification of the criteria that should be used in evaluating
* Higher-level modelling languages.
* Automatic reformulation techniques.
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS:
Submissions must be formatted in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science
(LNCS) style and must be within 15 pages (excluding references).
Submissions of shorter papers, including position papers, are also
welcome. Please submit papers by emailing a PDF file to the workshop
All submissions will be reviewed by at least two members of the
programme committee. Please note that at least one author of each
accepted paper must register for and attend the workshop and pay the
workshop fee, otherwise the paper and presentation will be withdrawn.
The proceedings of the event will be available electronically at
