ICAPS 2013 -- Call for Papers
The 23rd International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling, ICAPS'13, will take place in Rome, Italy, June 10-14, 2013. ICAPS'13 is part of the
ICAPS conference series (http://icaps-conference.org), the premier forum for exchanging news and research results on theory and applications of intelligent
planning and scheduling technology.
The organizing committee of ICAPS'13 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 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 and short papers.
The authors will indicate the type of paper at submission time. Full
papers can be up to 8 pages long, while short papers can be up to 4 pages
Submissions must be in the AAAI format (http://www.aaai.org/Publications/Author/author.php).
For more information, see the submission instructions on the conference web
site (http://icaps13.icaps-conference.org/?page_id=292). 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).
Special Track on Novel Applications of Automated Planning and Scheduling
This year ICAPS is pleased to introduce a special track focused on applications of planning and scheduling. The corresponding Call for Papers will be issued shortly.
Author and Reviewer Guidelines
All papers will be reviewed based on the standard criteria for clarity,
relevance, significance, originality, and soundness.
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'13 may not be
submitted to other conferences or journals during the ICAPS'13 review
period nor may they be already under review or published in other
conferences or journals. Overlength papers will be rejected without

* 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
* continuous planning
* 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
* multi-agent planning
* plan and schedule execution, monitoring and repair

The timetable for paper submissions and reviewing is as follows:
Electronic abstracts: November 9th, 2012
Electronic PDF papers: November 16th, 2012
Notification of acceptance: January 11th, 2013
