Constraint Programming (CP) and Boolean Satisfiability (SAT) are two related major topics of research in Artificial Intelligence. They have proved to be the most efficient techniques at the heart of general-purpose combinatorial problem solving, with application ranging from automation of logics, verification, planning and scheduling, both in academic research and industry.
Over the years, the ICTAI conference has become a major forum for the CSP and SAT research communities for presenting new high-quality results. The special track SAT/CSP@ICTAI2017 is intended to be a forum for new ideas and techniques using satisfiability and constraint solving. It particularly welcomes new core solving techniques, extensions to other domains of AI and applications.
Topics of Interest include but are not limited to:
SAT, SMT and CSP Solvers
Modeling, methodologies and tools
Implementation of solvers and global constraints
Applications of CSP and SAT-based technologies
Complete, incomplete and hybrid search techniques, heuristics, metaheuristics
AI techniques based on SAT and CSP
Tractable classes of problems, FPT, decompositions
Soft and weighted constraints, optimization, MAX-SAT, MAX-CSP
Machine learning, deep learning in SAT and CSP
Social network engineering with SAT and CSP
Papers follow the general ICTAI guidelines and may be either full papers (up to 8 pages) or short papers (up to 5 pages) and follow the standard IEEE formatting instructions for conference papers (single-spaced, double-column, 10-point font size).
Papers must be submitted in pdf only through the Easychair special track submission page (Submission). See submission instructions in Submission Tab.
All papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. Papers must report high-quality original work, be unpublished and not submitted elsewhere during the whole ICTAI review process.
Each accepted paper must be presented by one of the authors and accompanied by at least one full ICTAI 2017 registration fee payment, to guarantee publication in the proceedings.
Proceedings and Special Journal Issue
All papers accepted in the CSP and SAT technologies special track will be included in the ICTAI 2017 main proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society. Extended versions of the best papers are expected to be invited for publication in a special issue of an international journal after an additional round of reviews.
The track follows the main ICTAI dates. Please visit the “Important Dates” tab for details.
