The 2015 Configuration Workshop on continues the series of successful workshops started at the AAAI’96 Fall Symposium and continued at IJCAI, AAAI, and ECAI conferences since 1999. Beside researchers from a variety of fields, past events also attracted a significant number of participants from industry (major configurator vendors such as Tacton, SAP, Oracle, Encoway, or IBM-ILOG, as well as end-users from Siemens, Renault, HP, or DaimlerChrysler).
The 2015 configuration workshop was a stand-alone event. It took place in Vienna, Austria at the conference center of Siemens AG Österreich.

Configuration can be interpreted as a special type of design approach where the product being configured is composed from instances of a set of predefined component types that can be combined in ways defined by a set of constraints. This task requires powerful knowledge representation formalisms and acquisition methods to capture the variety and complexity of configurable products. Furthermore, efficient reasoning methods are required to support intelligent interactive behavior, solution search, satisfaction of user preferences, personalization, optimization, reconfiguration, and diagnosis.
