** Early-bird Registration available before July 7, 2011 **


The CP conference is the annual international conference on constraint
programming. It is concerned with all aspects of computing with
constraints, including theory, algorithms, environments, languages,
models,
systems, and applications such as decision making, resource
allocation, and
agreement technologies.

CP 2011 will feature pre-conference workshops and a 4-day technical
program
packed with invited talks, award-winning paper presentations, research
and
application track sessions, tutorials, panels, and a Doctoral Program.
