7th ICAPS Workshop on Planning and Robotics (PlanRob)

Collocated with ICAPS 2019 in Berkeley, USA.

AI Planning & Scheduling (P&S) methods are crucial to enable intelligent robots to perform autonomous, flexible, and interactive behaviors, but a deep integration into robotic architectures is needed for their effective deployment. This requires a close collaboration between researchers from both the AI and the Robotics communities. In this direction, this workshop aims at constituting a stable, long-term forum where researchers from both the P&S and the Robotics communities can openly discuss about relevant issues, research and development progress, future directions and open challenges related to P&S when applied to Robotics. The PlanRob workshop is proposed in synergy with the ICAPS Robotic track. We are in contact with the Robotics Track organizers trying to explore different ways to synchronize with them. The PlanRob WS aims to maintain a more informal forum where also more preliminary/visionary works can be discussed stimulating direct and open interactions. Topics of interest include but not limited to the following: There are two types of submissions: short position statements and regular papers. Position papers are a maximum of 4 (four) pages. Regular papers are a maximum of 10 (ten) pages. All papers should be typeset in the AAAI style, described at: http://www.aaai.org/Publications/Author/author.php removing AAAI copyright. Accepted papers will be published on the workshop website and printed as a hard-copy.

The papers must be submitted in a PDF format via EasyChair system (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=planrob2019).

Notice that papers under review (e.g., submitted to IJCAI-2019) are also welcome, however, in order to avoid potential conflicts these manuscripts should be prepared as anonymous submissions for a double blind reviewing process. The organizers will investigate the availability of journal editors in order to invite a selection of accepted papers from the workshop to a special issue or post-proceedings volume.
