Industrial Report submission guidelines
The objective of this conference is to bring
constraint technology to potential users. With this objective in mind, we
encourage users of constraint programming to submit reports on their experience
in applying constraint technology to real life problems. Such experience, which
may be positive or negative, will no doubt help researchers to identify new
research directions and develop new techniques.
Describe the Application
- Describe the problem or
business issue that is addressed?
- State clearly what the
system does, how is it designed and how does it work?
- What are the objectives?
- How large is the
application (lines of code, number of person years etc)?
Methods and Approach Taken
- Discuss the approach and
the reasons for choosing it
- What innovative methods are
used to solve the problems being addressed?
- Are the methods used
successful and did they measure up to the stated objectives?
- Did the methods used
provide any new insights?
- Provide a summary of feedback
- If the application is
experimental, evidence should be provided, preferably using a real-life
- Is there a Cost-Benefit
analysis to back-up the success of the work?
