ACP Summer School 2015, Toronto, Canada

New Frontiers in Constraint Programming

Dates: July 8-11th
Location: University of Toronto Scarborough, Canada

The subject of the 2015 ACP Summer School is "New Frontiers in Constraint Programming", where we explore some of the most exciting and innovative applications and research directions in Constraint Programming that have been shaping the field in recent years. The goal of the school is to familiarize PhD students, post-docs, and interested researchers with these new perspectives to foster ideas that can contribute to their own research and to better position themselves in the field.

Competition: The school is also hosting a Constraint Programming competition where winners and their work will be featured at the 21st International Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming (CP 2015).
