Submission to Journal-First and Sister Conferences Paper Track

The goal of this track is to provide a forum to discuss important results in the area of constraint programming, including those at the interface of another area (scientific, industrial, artistic…), that appeared or were accepted recently (in the last two years) in relevant journals and in sister conferences (a non exhaustive list of sister conferences contains AAAI, ECAI, IJCAI, ICAPS, KR, AAMAS, etc). An important requirement for the paper is that it should have never been presented at CP in past editions. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to give an oral presentation at the conference and to provide a one-page abstract citing their journal/sister conference paper for the conference proceedings.
