      ***************************** CALL FOR PAPERS ******************************

      The 24th Workshop of the UK PLANNING AND SCHEDULING Special Interest Group

      ... is visiting London, and will be held at:

      City University, London

      December 15-16, 2005

      **** http://www.soi.city.ac.uk/~cf609/SIG2005.htm ****

      The workshop is a yearly forum where academics, industrialists and research
      students can meet and discuss current issues in an informal setting. We
      especially aim to bring together researchers attacking different aspects of
      planning and scheduling problems, and to introduce new researchers to the
      community. In recent years the SIG has attracted an international
      gathering, and we continue to welcome contributions from around the world.

      This year the SIG will be held in London, ideally located for last-minute
      Christmas shopping!

      IMPORTANT DATES

      Deadline for submissions: Weds 5th October 2005
      Notification of acceptance: Tues 1st November, 2005

      PlanSIG workshop: Thurs 15th - Friday 16th December 2005

      SCOPE

      Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

      Algorithms: novel planning and scheduling algorithms.

      Applications: empirical studies of existing planning/scheduling systems;
      domain-specific techniques; heuristic techniques; user interfaces for
      planning and scheduling; evaluation metrics for plans/schedules;
      verification and validation of plans/schedules.

      Architectures: real-time support for planning/scheduling/control;
      mixed-initiative planning and user interfaces; integration of planning and
      scheduling; integration of planning/scheduling and Fault Detection
      Isolation and Recovery (FDIR); planning and scheduling in autonomous systems.

      Environmental and task models: analyses of the dynamics of environments,
      tasks, and domains with regard to different models of planning and
      execution; verification and validation of domain models.

      Formal Models: reasoning about knowledge, action, and time; representations
      and ontologies for planning and scheduling; search methods and analysis of
      algorithms; formal characterisation of existing planners and schedulers.

      Intelligent Agency: resource-bounded reasoning; distributed problem
      solving; integrating reaction and deliberation.

      Learning: learning in the context of planning and execution; learning new
      plans and operators; learning in the context of scheduling and schedule
      maintenance.

      Memory Based Approaches: case-based planning/scheduling; plan and operator
      learning and reuse; incremental planning.

      Reactive Systems: environmentally driven devices/behaviours; reactive
      control; behaviours in the context of minimal representations; schedule
      maintenance.

      Robotics: Motion and path planning; planning and control; planning and
      perception, integration of planning and perceptual systems.

      Constraint-based Planning/Scheduling and Control Techniques:
      constraint/preference propagation techniques, variable/value ordering
      heuristics, intelligent backtracking/RMS-based techniques, iterative repair
      heuristics, etc.

      Co-ordination Issues in Decentralised/Distributed planning/scheduling:
      co-ordination issues in both homogeneous and heterogeneous systems, system
      architecture issues, integration of strategic and tactical decision making;
      collaborative planning/scheduling.

      Iterative Improvement Techniques for Combinatorial Optimisation: genetic
      algorithms, simulated annealing, tabu search, neural nets, etc applied to
      scheduling and/or planning.

      Artificial Intelligence and Operations Research: comparative studies and
      innovative applications combining AI and OR techniques applied to
      scheduling and/or planning.

      Planning/scheduling under uncertainty: coping with uncertain, ill-specified
      or changing domains, environments and problems; application of uncertainty
      reasoning techniques to planning/scheduling, including MDPs, POMDPs, Belief
      Networks, stochastic programming, and stochastic satisfiability.

      SUBMISSIONS

      Full papers: (approx. 5000 words). These should report work in progress or
      completed work. Authors of full papers that are accepted by the Programme
      Committee will be invited to give a talk on the paper.

      Short papers: (2 pages) These should report views or ambitions, or describe
      problems. The author(s) will be able to discuss the paper informally with
      others at the workshop and will be invited to give a short presentation on
      their work.

      All papers and presentations should be in English.

      Papers can be submitted via e-mail (preferred) or made available on the
      Web. In either case, documents should be in gzipped postscript or PDF
      format and be named "author.ps.gz" or "author.pdf.gz", using the name of
      the first author.

      An e-mail message containing either the file or its URL (e.g.
      http://..../author.ps.gz) should reach the Programme Chair by 5th October
      2005.

      All submissions will be reviewed by two referees, and successful
      submissions will appear in the Workshop Proceedings (ISSN 1368-5708).
      Accepted papers will also be made available via the SIG web-site.
