Luc De Raedt, Siegfried Nijssen, Barry O'Sullivan & Pascal Van Hentenryck
This report documents the programme and the outcomes of Dagstuhl Seminar 11201 "Constraint Programming meets Machine Learning and Data Mining". Our starting point in this seminar was that machine learning and data mining have developed largely independently from constraint programming till now, but that it is increasingly becoming clear that there are many opportunities for interactions between these areas: on the one hand, data mining and machine learning can be used to improve constraint solving;...
