The 7th International Conference on Integration of AI and OR Techniques in Constraint Programming for Combinatorial Optimization Problems (CPAIOR 2010) was held in Bologna, Italy, June 16-18, 2010. The conference is intended primarily as a forum to focus on the integration and hybridization of the approaches of constraint programming (CP), arti?cial intelligence (AI), and operations research (OR) technologies for solving lar- scale and complex real-life combinatorial optimization problems. CPAIOR is focused on both theoretical and practical, application-oriented contributions. The interest of the researchcommunity in this conference is witnessed by the highnumber ofhigh-qualitysubmissions receivedthis year,reaching39 long and 33 short papers. From these submissions, we chose 18 long and 17 short papers to be published in full in the proceedings. ThisvolumeincludesextendedabstractsoftheinvitedtalksgivenatCPAIOR. Namely, one by Matteo Fischetti (University of Padova) on cutting planes and their use within search methods; another by Carla Gomes (Cornell University) on the recently funded NSF "Expedition in Computing" grant on the topic of computationalsustainabilityandonthepotentialapplicationofhybridoptimi- tion approachesto this area;a third by Peter Stuckey (University of Melbourne) on the integration of SATis?ability solvers within constraint programming and integer programming solvers.
