CALL FOR LIGHTNING TALKS (SLIGHT EXTENSION)
ModRef 2021 (https://modref.github.io/ModRef2021.html) is the 20th in a series of workshops on Constraint Modelling and Reformulation. It takes place virtually on October 25, preceding CP2021, the 27th International Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming.
The main aim of the workshop is to identify recent trends in constraint modelling, including (but not limited to) innovative modelling techniques, reformulation and preprocessing techniques, and understanding search.
This year, ModRef will host a round-table discussion to identify exciting directions for future improvements in modelling, and model transformation. As a lead-in to this, we will be holding a series of 2-3 minute lightning talks, with the theme What really bugs me about modelling is....
Do you have some favourite problem, that is just really awkward to model? Or a really nice formulation, that somehow becomes garbage by the time it reaches a solver? Some way you really want to use solvers, and they just won’t let you? Come along, and vent your spleen! And together, maybe we’ll come up with some neat ideas.
Please submit your lightning talk ideas through EasyChair by submitting a PDF with a few sentences describing the main idea of your talk. The (extended) deadline is September 2.
Half of the workshop is dedicated to the collaborative exercise to identify challenges for the next five years of modelling, with the goal of producing a jointly-written white/research paper to guide future research. The lightning talks play a key role here. The other half of the workshop will have a more conventional format with paper presentations (deadline for submission passed) and invited talks by Professor Torsten Schaub (University of Potsdam) on Answer Set Programming (ASP) and Dr Bart Bogaerts (Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium) on Predicate Logic as a Modelling Language: The IDP System.
- Lightning talk submissions: September 2nd, 2021 (extended)
- Notification of acceptance/rejection: September 13th, 2021
- Workshop day: October 25th, 2021
For questions about the workshop, please contact the chairs Dr Emir Demirović (TU Delft, The Netherlands) and Dr Graeme Gange (Monash University, Australia): email@example.com
