Industrial Day

As part of the George Boole 200 Bicentenary, we invite you to the Industrial Day of CP 2015 on Thursday, September 3rd.  CP 2015, the 21st International Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming runs from August 31st to September 5th in the Western Gateway Building of University College Cork. This Industrial Day aims to highlight some of the success stories in using Constraint Programming for practical problems, and shows the different ways academic research can interact with industry.

The day starts off at 09:00 with an invited talk by Claire Bagley, Senior Director Research and Development at Oracle. She will talk about "Constraint-based Problems and Solutions in the Global Enterprise". After a coffee break, there will be a session of application papers, covering topics from road transportation, disaster management, network design and shipping. After Lunch, we have a session on an Industrial Modelling Challenge running throughout the conference, providing an insight how constraint programming can be used for rapid solution development. This is followed by a poster session on Solution Showcases, presenting examples from Irish and international case studies on applications of constraint programming. Areas covered are industrial scheduling, network design and management, energy management, product configuration, personnel rostering, health care solutions, and many others.

The event will finish at 17:30. The detailed schedule can be found at For registration there are two options, both available at the registration page. You can register for the complete day (including lunch and coffee-breaks) for 35 Euro, or for the afternoon session only (free of charge, includes coffee break).

Note: delegates registered for the full CP/ICLP conferences do not need to register separately for the industry day.
