Constraint Logic Programming and Operations Research are two complementary technologies that can benefit from each other tremendously. On the one hand, CLP has only exploited a fraction of the knowledge accumulated in OR. On the other hand, CLP may allow many ideas from OR to become accessible to a wide audience. CLP also raises new problems at the intersection of programming languages, algorithm design, and operations research. The purpose of the workshop is to try stimulating a closer collaboration between the two fields and identifying new promising research directions. This one-day workshop will contain survey of some subareas in both fields and the presentation of recent research results.
