This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Integration of AI and OR Techniques in Constraint Programming for Combinatorial Optimization Problems, CPAIOR 2007, held in Brussels, Belgium in May 2007. The 27 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 80 submissions. Methodological and foundational issues from AI, OR, and algorithmics are presented as well as applications to the solution of combinatorial optimization problems in various fields via constraint programming.
