[Apologies if you receive multiple copies.
Please distribute this announcement to interested parties.]
Executive summary: the submission deadline for all ICAPS 2011 workshops
has been extended to *March 18*, 2011.
21st International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling
Freiburg, Germany, June 11-16, 2011
Workshop Program -- Second Announcement
After receiving numerous emails that bemoaned the proximity of the ICAPS
2011 workshop deadline to the AAAI paper submission deadline, we've
reconsidered our schedule and managed to remove a temporal constraint
that previously kept us from a later workshop paper deadline.
Hence, we are happy to announce that the common submission deadline for
all ICAPS 2011 workshops has been extended to
********* March 18, 2011 (UTC-12) *********
The workshops will take place on June 12th and 13th, 2011.
More information on the workshop program can be found on:
Looking forward to a great workshop program!
The Workshop Chairs The Conference Chairs
Blai Bonet & Amedeo Cesta Malte Helmert & Stefan Edelkamp
HDIP. Heuristics for Domain-independent Planning
Joerg Hoffmann <joerg.hoffmann at loria.fr>
Michael Katz <mkatz at technion.ac.il>
Alan Fern <afern at eecs.oregonstate.edu>
Patrik Haslum <patrik.haslum at anu.edu.au>
The aim of this workshop series is to further advance the
understanding of the ideas underlying current heuristics, their
limitations, and the ways for overcoming them. We seek crisp and
meaningful ideas and understanding, rather than incremental
improvements ('beating the competition'). Also, rather than merely
being interested in the 'largest' problems that current heuristic
search planners can solve, we are equally interested in the
simplest problems that they can't actually solve well.
KEPS. Knowledge Engineering for Planning and Scheduling
Roman Bartak <bartak at ktiml.mff.cuni.cz>
Simone Fratini <simone.fratini at istc.cnr.it>
Lee McCluskey <t.l.mccluskey at hud.ac.uk>
Tiago Stegun Vaquero <tiago.vaquero at poli.usp.br>
The KEPS workshop attracts audience interested in bridging the gap
between real-life problems and planning and scheduling algorithms.
Its topics include domain and problem formulations, languages,
knowledge acquisition (e.g. control rules), visualization,
validation and analysis of plans/domains, problem (re)formulation
etc. The workshop will include a demo session and an open
discussion on the next ICKEPS competition.
PAL. Planning and Learning
Erez Karpas <karpase at gmail.com>
Subbarao Kambhampati <rao at asu.edu>
Sergio Jimenez Celorrio <sjimenez at inf.uc3m.es>
The 3rd workshop on learning and planning aims to provide a forum
for the discussion of issues surrounding the use of learning
techniques in planning, continuing the lineage of the events of
ICAPS 2007 and 2009. This year, the workshop will be held in
parallel to the learning track of the International Planning
Competition, and will be a suitable forum to also present the ideas
behind the planners running the competition.
GAPRec. Goal, Activity and Plan Recognition
Derek Long <derek.long at cis.strath.ac.uk>
Christopher Geib <cgeib at inf.ed.ac.uk>
David Pattison <david.pattison at cis.strath.ac.uk>
Despite being based on the same principles, there is little
collaboration between the Planning and Recognition communities. The
workshop aims to foster creativity between these two fields, and to
introduce the current state of the art in Recognition research to
the wider ICAPS audience.
SPARK. Scheduling and Planning Applications woRKshop
Gabriella Cortellessa <gabriella.cortellessa at istc.cnr.it>
Minh Do <Minh.Do at parc.com>
Riccardo Rasconi <riccardo.rasconi at istc.cnr.it>
Neil Yorke-Smith <nysmith at aub.edu.lb>
The International Scheduling and Planning Applications woRKshop
(SPARK) aims to provide a stable forum on relevant topics connected
to application-focused research and the deployment of P&S systems.
Application domains that entail planning and scheduling (P&S)
problems present a set of interesting modeling, technological and
institutional challenges to the AI planning and scheduling
community that are becoming more and more frequently affordable for
AI. SPARK aims at fostering the practical application of advances
made in the AI P&S community.
MCTS. Monte-Carlo Tree Search: Theory and Applications
Alan Fern <afern at eecs.oregonstate.edu>
Michael Littman <mlittman at cs.rutgers.edu>
Sergiu Goschin <sgoschin at cs.rutgers.edu>
Chris Mansley <cmansley at cs.rutgers.edu>
Recent advances in Monte-Carlo planning, a combination of
low-overhead simulation with probabilistic decision making, have
led to progress in applications ranging from networking to
real-time strategy games. This workshop aims to bring together
researchers interested in both theoretical analysis and
applications of Monte-Carlo planning with the goal of creating a
shared foundation for additional research in this area.
COPLAS. Constraint Satisfaction Techniques for Planning and
Miguel Salido <msalido at dsic.upv.es>
Roman Bartak <bartak at ktilinux.ms.mff.cuni.cz>
Nicola Policella <nicola.policella at esa.int>
COPLAS provides a forum to discuss novel issues of using constraint
satisfaction techniques in planning and scheduling. It covers
topics such as constraint modeling of P&S problems, constraint
reasoning for P&S problems (e.g. temporal and resource
constraints), and real-life problems. The workshop will be highly
interactive with immediate commentaries of all papers.
VVPS. Verification and Validation for Planning and Scheduling
Saddek Bensalem <saddek.bensalem at gmail.com>
Klaus Havelund <klaus.havelund at jpl.nasa.gov>
Andrea Orlandini <andrea.orlandini at itia.cnr.it>
The VVPS workshop aims to enhance a stable forum on relevant topics
connected to contaminations between V&V and P&S. The workshop will
deepen the debate on relevant aspects of interactions between V&V
methods and P&S-based systems. Important goals are to investigate
new solutions and identify open issues.
