ICAPS 2012   Call for Papers


ICAPS 2012 website:  http://icaps12.icaps-conference.org/ 


NEW EVENT DATES:  June 25-29, 2012


The 22nd International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling,
ICAPS'12, will take place in

Atibaia, Sao Paulo, Brazil, June 25-29, 2012. ICAPS'12 is part of the ICAPS
conference series, the premier

forum for exchanging news and research results on theory and applications of
intelligent planning and scheduling



The organizing committee of ICAPS'12 invites paper submissions on topics
related to automated planning

and scheduling. The purpose of the conference is to promote research in
automated planning and scheduling

through analysis and dissemination of the foundational theory, the
technologies, and their application to

significant problems. The focus of the conference program is on:

* Analytic and empirical studies of planning and scheduling problems as well
as algorithms for solving them;

* Studies applying automated planning and scheduling technologies to real
problems and descriptions of deployed applications;

* Techniques that extend the complexity and the types of problems that can
be solved with current techniques; and

* Analytic and implemented tools for supporting automated planning and


We particularly welcome application papers providing novel insights about
either planning and scheduling, or

their application in the real world, as well as papers that bring into
planning useful computational technologies

from other areas of AI/CS.


Following the most recent editions of ICAPS, the authors will be allowed to
submit two types of papers:

* Full technical papers

* Short papers


The authors will indicate the type of paper at submission time. The main
body of text can be up to 8 pages

for full technical papers and up to 4 pages for short papers, but they may
use one extra page containing only

bibliographical references. Submissions must be in the AAAI format

For more information, see the submission instructions on the conference web
site (http://icaps12.icaps-conference.org/).   


The proceedings will be published by AAAI Press. All accepted papers will be
published in the main conference 

proceedings and will be presented orally at the conference (full papers will
be allocated more time). 

Authors of award-winning papers (best papers, best student papers and
runnersup) will have the opportunity to submit 

extended versions of their papers for fast track review to the "best paper
track" of either the Journal of Artificial 

Intelligence Research or to Artificial Intelligence.



Special Track on Continuous Planning



This year ICAPS is pleased to introduce a special track on Continuous
Planning. This is intended as a multidisciplinary

track that focuses on all elements of online systems that perform real-time
planning, execution,

monitoring and adaptation. Topics include, but not limited to, real-time
planning, planning in mixed discrete continuous

domains, planning for systems with hidden state, plan monitoring and
diagnosis of discrete and

continuous systems. Papers are encouraged from a range of neighboring
disciplines, including model-based

reasoning, hybrid systems, run-time verification, control and robotics. The
track has a separate program

committee that is drawn from these disciplines.


Author and Reviewer Guidelines



All papers will be reviewed based on the standard criteria for clarity,
relevance, significance, originality, and



Full technical papers are expected to report on new research that makes a
substantial technical contribution

to the field and is placed in the context of existing work.


Short papers can report on new research or other issues of interest to the
ICAPS community. Examples

of work suitable for short papers include: novel ideas that are not yet
fully developed or whose scope is not

large enough for a full paper; important implementation techniques; novel
interesting benchmark problems;

short experimental studies; interesting applications that are not yet
completely solved or analyzed; position or

challenge papers; etc.


Authors making multiple submissions must ensure that each submission has
significant unique content.

Papers submitted to ICAPS'12 may not be submitted to other conferences or
journals during the ICAPS'12

review period nor may they be already under review or published in other
conferences or journals. Overlength

papers will be rejected without review.


Topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

* adversarial planning

* applications and case studies of planning and scheduling techniques

* classical planning

* complexity analysis for planning and scheduling

* conformant/contingent planning

* constraint reasoning/OR techniques for planning and scheduling

* distributed and multi-agent planning and scheduling

* hierarchical task network planning and knowledge-based planning

* knowledge acquisition and engineering for planning and scheduling

* machine learning for planning and scheduling

* plan and schedule execution, monitoring and repair

* plan recognition

* planning and scheduling under uncertainty

* planning with resources and time constraints

* real-time planning and scheduling

* robot planning

* search for planning and scheduling


Important Dates


The timetable for paper submissions and reviewing is as follows:

Electronic abstracts: Fri, December 9th, 2011

Electronic PDF papers: Fri, December 16th, 2011

Notification of acceptance: Tue, February 7th, 2012


The reference timezone for all deadlines is UTC-12. This means that if you
are in time anywhere on the world,

then you are in time!
