The International Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming will take place in Toulouse, France, from September 5th to September 9th 2016.

This is the 22nd edition of the annual conference on all aspects of computing with constraints, including: theory, algorithms, environments, languages, models, systems, and applications such as decision making, resource allocation, scheduling, configuration, and planning. The Association for Constraint Programming has a list of previous conferences in this series.

The CP 2016 program will include presentations of high quality scientific papers on constraints technology. In addition to the usual technical track, the CP 2016 conference will feature thematic tracks. Each track has a specific sub-committee to make sure that competent reviewers will review the papers submitted by people of these domains.

A number of invited talks on important topics relevant to the field will also be presented. Beyond the usual workshop, tutorial and doctoral programs, we will repeat the published paper track in which important results that have recently appeared in journals or sister conferences will be presented, the journal publication fast track for outstanding submissions, and the industry outreach program. Finally, we introduce this year a challenge based on a realistic industrial grade optimization problem.
