      The 24th International Conference on
      Automated Planning and Scheduling



      June 21-26, 2014
      Portsmouth, NH, USA

      Technical paper submission deadline:
      October 29 (abstracts)
      November 5 (papers)

      Notification of acceptance: December 20, 2013

      Special tracks:
      Novel Applications
      Journal Paper Presentations


      * Abstracts due in less than a week

      * Separate submission sites for each special track

      * All tracks open to receive submissions

      * Deadline is strict and not subject to extension


      This year's program committee welcomes papers that address planning
      and scheduling problems of all kinds, including but not limited to:

      * continuous state and action spaces
      * uncertainty and stochasticity
      * partially observable and unobservable domains
      * learning
      * multi-agent and distributed systems
      * on-line and real-time domains
      * continuous and lifelong planning
      * plan management and goal reasoning
      * plan recognition
      * domain modeling and knowledge representation
      * commercial applications

      Relevant contributions include, but are not limited to:

      * Analytic and empirical studies of planning and scheduling problems
      and 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 scheduling.

      We particularly welcome papers that bring into planning and scheduling
      useful computational technologies from other areas of artificial
      intelligence and computer science.


      Following recent editions of ICAPS, authors may submit long papers (8
      pages plus up to one page of references) or short papers (4 pages plus
      up to one page of references).

      Submissions must be in the AAAI format

      For more information, please see the submission instructions at the
      conference website. 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).

      There will be three special tracks this year:

      * Robotics: including planning and scheduling at the level of teams,
      tasks, behaviors, motions, and controls; autonomous or
      mixed-initiative systems; formal methods and fielded systems.

      Track chairs: Felix Ingrand (LAAS-CNRS)
      Leslie Pack Kaelbling (MIT)

      The corresponding Call for Papers is available at:

      * Novel Applications: including emerging and deployed applications,
      case studies and lessons learned.

      Track chairs: Roman Bartak (Charles University)
      David E. Smith (NASA Ames)

      The corresponding Call for Papers is available at:

      * Journal Paper Presentations: work relevant to ICAPS that has
      appeared in a recent journal article but has not been presented at a
      major AI conference.

      Track chair: Ronen Brafman (Ben-Gurion University)

      The corresponding Call for Papers is available at:

      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-14 may not be
      submitted to other conferences or journals during the ICAPS-14 review
      period nor may they be already under review or published in other
      conferences or journals. Overlength papers will be rejected without review.

      Organizing Committee:

      * Conference chairs: Wheeler Ruml (University of New Hampshire, USA)
      Minh Do (SGT Inc. & NASA Ames, USA)

      * Program chairs: Steve Chien (Jet Propulsion Lab, USA)
      Alan Fern (Oregon State University, USA)
