Constraint (Logic) Programming: A Survey on Research and Applications


Constraint logic programming (CLP) is a multidisciplinary research area which can be located between Artificial Intelligence, Operation Research, and Programming Languages, and has to do with modeling, solving, and programming real-life problems which can be described as a set of statements (the constraints) which describe some relationship between the problem’s variables. This survey paper gives a brief introduction to C(L)P, presents a (necessarily partial) state of the art in CLP research and applications, points out some promising directions for future applications, and discusses how to cope with current research challenges.
