We propose to integrate ACO in a Constraint Programming (CP) language. Basically, we use the CP language to describe the problem to solve by means of constraints and we use the CP propagation engine to reduce the search space and check constraint satisfaction; however, the classical backtrack search of CP is replaced by an ACO search. We report first experimental results on the car sequencing problem and compare different pheromone strategies for this problem.
