About these proceedings


This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed and extended post-workshop proceedings of the 13th Annual ERCIM International Workshop on Constraint Solving and Constraint Logic Programming, CSCLP 2008, held in Rome, Italy, in June 2008.

The 9 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 14 initial submissions. The papers in this volume present original research results, as well as applications, in many aspects of constraint solving and constraint logic programming. Research topics that can be found in the papers are ¯rst-order constraints, symmetry breaking, global constraints, constraint optimization problems, distributed constraint solving problems, soft constraints, as well as the analysis of application domains such as cumulative resource problems and hybrid systems.
