Configurators are a cornerstone for successful applications of the mass cus-tomization paradigm. Combined with e-business solutions these techniques have a high market impact. Configurators are generating new business opportunities in many industries for new products and for new ways to interact with customers. However, efficient development and maintenance of configurators require sophisticated software development techniques. AI methods, more than ever, are central to the development of powerful configuration tools. The goal of this workshop was to strengthen the interaction between industry and research in order to improve the state of the art.
