This is a “virtual volume” celebrating the first 25 years of the CP conference.
*New* There is now an option to leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
The authors (or some subset of them) of one paper chosen from each year of the conference have supplied a “commentary” on their paper. They were given free rein as to subject matter, length and format. Each paper title links to the original paper at Springer. Springer is providing free access to all the proceedings during the 2019 conference and through October:
I make no claim that this volume includes the ‘best’ or ‘most important’ paper from any year. There is no perfect way to choose one paper from each conference. What I’ve done is search in Google Scholar for the paper with the most citations for each year. This is imperfect in so many ways. The citations for conference papers that went on to journals, e.g. a special CP conference issue of the Constraints journal, could suffer from “vote splitting” with the journal version. For recent years with less opportunity for citation, the utility of this measure is, of course, particularly dubious. And so on. In fact, given the vagaries and complexities of Google Scholar, it is possible that I did not even successfully find the most highly cited paper for each year. For 2019, I’ve exercised “editor’s prerogative” and just picked a paper on a subject I’m particularly interested in. Despite all these caveats, I think the volume will provide an interesting perspective on the field, and hopefully be both fun and instructive to read.
Eventually the plan is to collect all the commentaries posted here into a single PDF, and make the resulting volume available open access through a publisher or repository.
