Constraint programming techniques are important components of intelligent systems. They have been applied successfully to a number of fields, such as scheduling of air traffic, software engineering, and networks security. Despite the proved usefulness of these techniques, they are under-utilized in real-life projects. One reason might be the lack of knowledge of researchers and practitioners from other fields about constraints in general and their use in decision making in particular.

Objectives of CoProD:
The objectives of CoProD are:
- To draw together a network of researchers interested in constraint techniques, in particular researchers and practitioners that use numeric and symbolic approaches (or a combination) to solve constraints and optimization problems.
- To address the gap between the great capacity of these techniques and their limited use.
Expected outcomes of CoProD:
- Definition of new directions for combining numeric and symbolic approaches in solving constraints and optimization problems in particular and in decision making in general.
- Better connection between actual practitioners and researchers in constraints and decision making,
CoProD'08 has the potential to impact these communities by easing collaborations and therefore the emergence of new techniques, and by creating a network of interest.
Main Organizer: Martine Ceberio
Local students are also involved in the organization of the workshop and will be given the opportunity to exhibit posters about their constraint-related work outside of the workshop room, and so will the students of the other attendees.
Naga Suman Kanagala: Graduate
Essau Ramirez: Undergraduate
Paden Portillo: Undergraduate
Location: University Texas El Paso Union Building
The workshop will be held at the University of Texas at El Paso, in the Union Building, Templeton Suite (3rd floor).
Discover a city that stretches the imagination - El Paso, Texas' westernmost city. A city of nearly three-quarters of a million people, which sprawls across hundreds of square miles of desert and rambling foothills. The Franklin Mountains, southern tip of the Rockies, slice El Paso nearly in two. With its classic Western geography and tri-cultural history, El Paso makes an intriguing place to visit.
El Paso is the gateway to Juarez, Mexico (US citizens do not need a visa for a short visit across the border), and to southern New Mexico with such recognized attractions as Fort Bliss, Carlsbad Caverns and White Sands National Memorial.
El Paso's dry, sunny, warm desert climate earned the city the nickname "Sun City".
