                        Call for Papers
        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.

                        Important dates

        Deadline for submission:    September 2, 1994
        Notification of acceptance: October 7, 1994
        Camera-ready papers due:    October 28, 1994
        Workshop:                   November 17 or 18, 1994
