Post-ILPS'94 Workshop on Constraints and Databases

Sheraton Inn, Ithaca, NY, U.S.A.

November 17 or 18, 1994

This workshop will bring together researchers in constraint logic

programming and constraint databases to discuss the state-of-the-art

in each field and how they can contribute to each other. This

workshop comes at a time when applications with increasingly large

collections of complex constraints are proposed and techniques to

manipulate such collections of constraints are rapidly improving as

a result of the incorporation of database technology.

The workshop is held in conjunction with the 1994 International

Logic Programming Symposium (ILPS'94), which will be held from

November 13 to November 17, 1994. The workshop will include a talk

by an invited speaker, a panel discussion and paper presentations.

Topics of Interest

The topics of interest for this workshop include, but are not

limited to:

- Applications of constraint databases

- Memoing evaluation of constraint logic programs

- Constraint-based query optimization

- Object databases and constraints

- Constraint domains in databases

- Representing partial information in databases

- Constraint manipulation algorithms

- Spatial/temporal databases and constraints

- Constraint query languages

- Storing and accessing large sets of constraints

Paper Submissions

Papers must not exceed 10 pages (approximately 4000 words), and the

title page should include each author's name, address, telephone

number and electronic mailing address. We encourage authors to submit

papers electronically in PostScript format to any one of the workshop

organizers. Alternatively, four paper copies may be submitted.

Authors of accepted papers are expected to attend the workshop and

present their paper. The collection of accepted papers will be

available at the workshop as a technical report.

People interested in attending this workshop are encouraged

to submit a note of interest by electronic mail to one

of the workshop organizers.
