                               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 following:
* Formal action/domain representations for automated planning in  
mobile robotics
* 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 29, 2011 (Extended Deadline)
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
