Call for Workshop Proposals
The CP-2002 Program Committee invites proposals for the Workshop Program

Workshops will be held in the period of September 7-8, 2002, immediately
before the start of the main conference.
CP-2002 workshops will provide an informal setting where workshop
participants will have the opportunity to discuss specific technical
topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas.
Workshops are an opportunity to disseminate work in progress or
to promote new and emerging areas within the field of constraints. The
topics of the workshops can cover any area related to constraints and
any related cross-disciplinary areas.
The format of the workshop will be determined by the organizers.
Workshops can vary in length with an expected duration ranging from half

is strongly advised. Workshop attendees must pay the CP-2002 workshop
