15th International Workshop on Constraint Programming
and Decision Making CoProD 2022
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, May 30, 2022

The workshop will be held right before the Annual Conference of the North American Fuzzy Information Processing Society NAFIPS'2022, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, May 31 - June 3, 2022.


Constraint programming techniques are important components of intelligent systems. They constitute a declarative and efficient methodology to represent and solve many practical problems. They have been applied successfully to a number of fields, such as scheduling of air traffic, software engineering, networks security, chemistry, and biology. Despite the proved usefulness of these techniques, they are still under-utilized in real-life applications. One reason is the perceived lack of effective communication between constraint programming experts and domain practitioners about constraints, in general, and their use in decision making, in particular.
