Innovative Applications is a programme under the
Constraint Programming 2001 Conference.
The Innovative Applications is a forum for practitioners and end users of
constraint technology, and an interface between them and researchers in
The purpose of the Innovative Track is to report successful
applications of constraint technology, so as to attract potential users
and researchers to this technology. Papers submitted to this track will
mainly be judged by the success of applications reported. Authors may withhold
confidential technical details if preferred.
We welcome submission in, but not limited to, the
surveys of an application area, including problems to
which constraint programming may be applied, experience in applying
constraint programming, and areas where further research is required to
meet industrial needs;
software engineering aspect of constraint
programming, including constraints elicitation, modelling and solving
solutions of constraint problems using
multiple solving techniques, including cooperative
algorithms, hybrid solver configurations, and embedding constraint techniques
in logic programming;
the evaluation and comparison of approaches, including
operational research vs. constraint programming, and stochastic vs. complete
The objective of this conference is to bring
constraint technology to potential users. With this objective in mind, we
encourage researchers in constraint programming to submit papers on new
techniques and new research directions. Authors should explain the (short or
long term) relevance of such techniques and directions to practical
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?
- Describe your results in as
much detail as necessary; provide enough detail (possible through a
technical report in a public web site) to allow other developers to
experiment with the approach described
- 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 from users
- If the application is
experimental, evidence should be provided, preferably using a real-life
- How is the system currently
- Is there a Cost-Benefit
analysis to back-up the success of the work?
You may also like to consider the following
- Is there a web site where
readers can get more information?
- Is there a version that can
be presented to an audience?
- Are there any related
articles that have been published in magazines/journals?
- What are the future plans
for the work (extensions, deployment opportunities)?
