The aim of the CPORA-Workshop on Constraint Programming and Operation Research Applications is to bring together interested researchers from constraint programming/constraint logic programming (CP/CLP), operations research (OR) and artificial intelligence (AI) to present new techniques or new applications in decision support, combinatorial optimization, modeling and control processes arising in manufacturing, transportation, telecommunication, computer networks, logistic systems etc. and to provide an opportunity for researchers in one area to learn about techniques in the others.
The workshop will be in conjunction with ACM RecSys 2016 in Boston (MIT).
The workshop complements the core RecSys activities by pushing the agenda of taking into account user-centric aspects, such as emotions and personality, into the RecSys framework. In recent years, emotions and personality have shown to play an important role in various aspects of recommender systems, such as implicit feedback, contextual information, affective content labeling, cold-start problem, diversity, cross-domain recommendations, group recommendations etc. With the development of robust techniques for the unobtrusive acquisition of emotions (e.g. from various modalities, such as video or physiological sensors) and personality (e.g. from social media) the time is right to take advantage of these possibilities to collect massive datasets and improve recommender systems.
Organised in conjunction with the 7th International Conference on Emerging Ubiquitous Systems and Pervasive Networks (EUSPN 2016).
This is the first IFAC Workshop on Computer and Control following previous workshops organized by IFAC Technical Committee 3.3 as Workshops on Real-Time Programming (WRTP) and Algorithms and Architectures for Real-Time Control (AARTC) that were successfully organised during 30 editions.
The scope of the workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in control and computers to explore innovative ideas and experiences in the theory and technology of cyber-physical systems and embedded systems.
