The IJCAI-09 Workshop on Distributed Constraint Reasoning (DCR)
Distributed Constraint Reasoning (DCR) problems arise when pieces of information about variables, constraints or both are relevant to independent but communicating agents. They provide a promising framework to deal with the increasingly diverse range of distributed real-world problems emerging from the evolution of computation and communication technologies.
The new challenges posed by solving Distributed Constraint Reasoning Problems include dealing with resource restrictions (such as limits on time and communication), privacy requirements, exploiting opportunities for cooperation, and designing conflict resolution strategies.
