11. ILPS 1994, Workshop 2: Constraints and Databases

Preface

The Post-ILPS'94 Workshop on Constraints and Databases was organized with the aim of bringing together researchers in constraint logic programming and constraint databases to discuss the state-of-the-art in each field and how they can contribute to each other. Applications with increasingly large collections of complex constraints are being proposed and techniques to manipulate such collections of constraints are rapidly improving as a result of the incorporation of database technology. We hope that progress in the area will be fostered by interactions generated in workshops such as this one.

There were a total of 16 submissions to the workshop, all of high quality. We were able to select only 10 papers due to time constraints. The papers accepted for presentation have been compiled into an informal proceedings which is available as Technical Report UNL-CSE-94-025, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, November 1994.

This workshop was held in conjunction with the 1994 International Logic Programming Symposium (ILPS'94), which took take place in Ithaca, NY from November 13 to November 17, 1994. The workshop was made possible by the organizing committee of ILPS'94. In particular we would like to thank Howard Blair, the Workshop Chair of ILPS'94, for his support. We would also like to thank all the people who submitted papers to the workshop since they, more than others, are responsible for the success of this workshop. Finally, we would like to thank David Kemp for serving as an external referee.
