      ICAPS 2014 Tutorial Program: Second Call for Proposals

      to be held in Portsmouth, USA - June 21st - 26th, 2014

      The Organising Committee for the 24th International Conference on
      Automated Planning and Scheduling (ICAPS 2014) invites proposals for
      its Tutorial Program. Tutorials offer the attendees first-hand
      experience with state-of-the-art trends in research and applications by
      leading experts. The tutorials will be held in the two days before the
      plenary sessions of the conference, alongside the workshops.
      Registration is free for ICAPS participants.

      To minimise the workload on tutorial speakers and encourage more
      submissions we particularly solicit proposals for short high-quality
      tutorials of quarter-day duration (approx 90 minutes); or half-day
      tutorials. For half-day tutorials, we encourage the proposers to divide
      them into loosely coupled quarter-day tutorials such that one is not the
      prerequisite of the other -- maximising the potential audience, given
      attendees' other commitments on the day.

      Proposals in all areas related to AI planning and scheduling are
      welcome. We aim to maintain the eclectic program of pre-conference
      events held at ICAPS in recent years, including tutorials that promote
      building bridges to other research communities working with similar
      technologies (e.g. verification, diagnosis, OR) or on related
      application problems (e.g. robotics or security).



      == Tutorial Proposals ==

      Tutorial Submissions should include:

      - The tutorial title

      - A summary of the tutorial, i.e. a tutorial abstract

      - An outline, e.g. a bulleted list of indicative topics

      - Expected length (quarter or half-day) of the tutorial

      - A short CV of the proposer(s), including a list of significant
      publications.



      == Submission Procedure ==

      Tutorial proposals should be submitted by email, in plain text or in
      PDF, to both the Tutorial Chairs with subject ``Tutorial Proposal for
      ICAPS-14'' no later than January 15th, 2014. Organisers of independent
      tutorials will be notified by email of the acceptance or rejection of
      their proposal by February 1st, 2014.
