ICAPS 2022 : The 32nd International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling
Conference Series : International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling
Call For Papers
ICAPS 2022, the 32nd International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling, will take place in Singapore, June 19-24, 2022. ICAPS 2022 will be part of the ICAPS conference series, the premier forum for exchanging news and research results on theory and applications of intelligent planning and scheduling technology. It is as yet too early to determine whether ICAPS 2022 will have the traditional structure or will have to be taken partly, or wholly, online. We will keep the community informed as we monitor the pandemic situation. Nevertheless, ICAPS 2022 will take place in some format.
ICAPS 2022 will feature 5 different tracks:
Journal Presentations Track
Industry and Applications Track
Planning and Learning Track
Human-Aware Planning and Scheduling Track
Additionally, the ICAPS program will include demonstrations, workshops, and tutorials, each having separate submission and notification dates, to be announced separately.
The ICAPS 2022 program committee invites paper submissions related to automated planning and scheduling. Relevant contributions include, but are not limited to:
Theoretical foundations of planning and scheduling
Classical planning techniques and analysis
Knowledge representation for planning and scheduling
Planning with time and resources
Plan and schedule execution, monitoring, and repair
Continual, on-line, and real-time planning and scheduling
Plan recognition, plan management, and goal reasoning
Uncertainty and stochasticity in planning and scheduling
Partially observable and unobservable domains
Conformant, contingent, and adversarial planning
Multi-agent and distributed planning
Planning and scheduling with continuous state and action spaces
Planning and scheduling with mixed continuous and discrete states/actions/decisions
Robot planning and scheduling
Knowledge acquisition and engineering for planning and scheduling
Applications and case studies of planning and scheduling techniques (see also special track)
Learning for planning and scheduling (see also special track)
Human-aware planning and scheduling (see also special track)
We have arranged our schedule to permit revision and resubmission of papers rejected from AAAI 2022.
December 10, 2021 - Abstracts due (electronic submission)
December 15, 2021 - Full Papers due (electronic submission, PDF)
January 25-28, 2022 - Author feedback period
February 18, 2022 - Notification of acceptance or rejection
The reference timezone for all deadlines is UTC-12. That is, as long as there is still some place anywhere in the world where the deadline has not yet passed, you are on time!
Authors may submit long papers (8 pages AAAI style plus up to one page of references) or short papers (4 pages plus up to one page of references). The type of paper must be indicated at submission time. All papers, regardless of length, will be reviewed against the standard criteria of relevance, originality, significance, clarity, soundness, and are expected to meet the same high standards set by ICAPS. Short papers may be of narrower scope, for example by addressing a highly specific issue, or proposing or evaluating a small, yet important, extension of previous work or new idea. Overlength papers will be rejected without review.
Authors making multiple submissions must ensure that each submission has significant unique content. Papers submitted to ICAPS 2022 may not be submitted to other conferences or journals during the ICAPS 2022 review period nor may they be already under review, accepted, or published in other conferences or journals. AAAI decisions will be available two weeks before the ICAPS paper submission deadline. This year, the time gap between submissions to major AI conferences is tighter than usual. We had hoped to be able to both accept submissions of papers rejected from AAAI and enable authors to submit papers rejected from ICAPS to IJCAI 2022. However, the timeline is simply too tight for us to do this and maintain the quality of the ICAPS reviewing process. So while rejected papers from AAAI will have decisions early enough to permit revision and resubmission to ICAPS, we are unable to complete our reviews in time for papers to be resubmitted to IJCAI. Specifically, as the ICAPS 2022 notification date is after IJCAI 2022 full paper submission dates, ICAPS authors will not be allowed to resubmit their papers to IJCAI while they are under review at ICAPS, because of single submission requirements of both conferences.
It is optional for authors to include a statement of the potential broader impact of their work, including its ethical aspects and future societal consequences. This statement can be included in either the main body pages or the reference page. If such a statement is not included in the paper but the reviewers deem that such a statement is necessary, then the authors will be asked to provide one during the author response period for review. If the paper is accepted, the statement provided will need to be incorporated in the camera-ready version.
All submissions will be made electronically, through the EasyChair conference system: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icaps2022
Submitted PDF papers should be anonymous for double-blind reviewing, adhere to the page limits of the relevant track CFP/submission type (long or short), and follow the AAAI author kit instructions for formatting:
In addition to the submitted PDF paper, authors can submit supplementary material (videos, technical proofs, additional experimental results) for their paper. Please make sure that the supporting material is also anonymized. Papers should be self-contained; reviewers are encouraged, but not obligated, to consider supporting material in their decisions.
Please direct all questions to ICAPS2022@easychair.org.
