                              CALL FOR PAPERS


PAMR 2011: The AAAI-11 Workshop on Automated Action Planning for Autonomous
Mobile Robots 




San Francisco, California

August 7, 2011




The purpose of this workshop is to bring researchers from the Automated
Planning and Mobile Robotics Communities together to investigate the
research issues on the use of automated high-level action planning
techniques for mobile robots. Recently, there have been significant advances
in both fields. 


Robots as embodied agents provide convenient tools to test and validate
high-level planners on real planning problems. This workshop aims to foster
the exchange of ideas and to promote research on automated planning
representations, models and algorithms for mobile robots to achieve complex
planning tasks. The emphasis will be placed on the formal aspects of action
planning for mobile robots. The use of the latest promising action planners
on mobile robots, their applicability and action/domain representation
issues will be analyzed.


Topics of interest for this workshop include, but are not limited to, the


* Formal action/domain representations for automated planning in mobile

* Automated planners for autonomous mobile robots

   **Dynamic action planning

   **Continual action planning 

   **Contingent action planning 

   **Distributed action planning 

   **Generating concurrent plans

   **Adversarial action planning in competitive robotic domains

* Integrating action planning and scheduling on autonomous mobile robots

* Analysis of current action planners for autonomous mobile robots

* Benchmark planning domains for mobile robots

* Real-world planning applications for autonomous mobile robots




Paper submission deadline: April 22, 2011

Notification of acceptance: May 13, 2011

Camera Ready Versions: May 27, 2011

Workshop Date: August 7, 2011




The emphasis for this one-day meeting will be on discussion and interaction
among the participants by the presentations of research papers. Invited
talks and a panel discussion by experts from both the planning and robotics
communities are planned. Since the topic is on real robots, the participants
are welcome to present their video or live demonstrations.




The submissions should not exceed 6 pages in the AAAI style, either in
PostScript or PDF format. Demonstration description and position papers with
a maximum length of 2 pages are also welcome. 


Papers should be submitted via
