Efficient interactive configuration of unbounded modular systems
Interactive configuration guides a user searching through a large combinatorial space of solutions to a system of constraints. We investigate a class of very expressive underlying...

Asynchronous Partial Overlay: A New Algorithm for Solving Distributed Constraint Satisfaction Problems
Distributed Constraint Satisfaction (DCSP) has long been considered an important problem in multi-agent systems research. This is because many real-world problems can be represent...

The message management asynchronous backtracking algorithm
: This paper shows how the Asynchronous Backtracking (Yokoo et al., 1998) algorithm, a well known distributed constraint satisfaction algorithm, produces unnecessary messages and i...

Random subcubes as a toy model for constraint satisfaction problems
We present an exactly solvable random-subcube model inspired by the structure of hard constraint satisfaction and optimization problems. Our model reproduces the structure of the s...

Visual analogy: Viewing analogical retrieval and mapping as constraint satisfaction problems
The core issue of analogical reasoning is the transfer of relational knowledge from a source case to a target problem. Visual analogical reasoning pertains to problems containing ...

The Exact Closest String Problem as a Constraint Satisfaction Problem
We report (to our knowledge) the first evaluation of Constraint Satisfaction as a computational framework for solving closest string problems. We show that careful consideration o...
