ECAI 2008 Workshop on Configuration Systems

July 21 - 22, Patras, Greece

Affiliated with the 18th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI 2008)

Proceedings ISBN number issued: 978-960-6843-01-3

Special issue on Configuration Instructions


The 2008 Workshop on Configuration Systems continues the series of eleven successful Configuration Workshops started at the AAAI'96 Fall Symposium and continued on IJCAI, AAAI, and ECAI since 1999.

The main goal of the workshop is to promote high-quality research in all technical areas related to configuration and to bring together researchers and practitioners from industry and academia. The workshop is of interest for both researchers working in the various fields within the wide range of applicable AI technologies (like Constraint Programming, SAT-Solving, Description Logics, Non-monotonic Reasoning, and Case-Based Reasoning) as well as for industry representatives interested in the relationship between configuration technology and the business problem behind configuration and mass customization.

Main Areas of Interest

  • Configuration problems and models
  • Reasoning methods
  • Interactivity & e-business
  • Integration into the business process
  • Applications & tools

Important Dates

  • Paper submission deadline: April 16th, 2008
  • Notification of acceptance: May 14th, 2008
  • Final papers due: May 30th, 2008
  • ECAI registration deadline for at least one author: June 8th, 2008
  • Configuration workshop: July 21st-22nd, 2008

In order to attract high-quality technical papers, we will publish revised versions of selected papers in a special issue on configuration in "International Journal of Mass Customization".
