Robotics researchers:

The International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling (ICAPS) is
the premier forum for publishing research on planning and scheduling. To make
it easier for robotics researchers to let artificial intelligence researchers
know about recent results on planning and scheduling in robotics, there is now
a journal presentation track which is designed to provide a forum to discuss
important results in the area of automated planning and scheduling that
appeared recently in selective journals (including robotics journals), but
have not been previously presented at a major artificial intelligence
conference. So, please feel encouraged to participate and let the artificial
intelligence community know about your recent research results and, at the
same time, learn about what that community has to offer to robotics.

Best,

ICAPS 2013 JOURNAL PRESENTATION TRACK

CALL FOR PAPERS

http://icaps13.istc.cnr.it

The 23rd International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling, ICAPS
2013, will take place in Rome, Italy, June 10-14, 2013.  The program committee
of ICAPS 2013 invites submissions of published journal papers for the newly
created Journal Presentation Track.  The track is designed to provide a forum
to discuss important results in the area of automated planning and scheduling
that appeared recently in selective journals, but have not been previously
presented at a major AI conference.  Authors of accepted papers will be
invited to give an oral presentation at the conference and contribute an
extended abstract to the conference proceedings.  The goal of this track is
two-fold: (1) to provide authors an opportunity to present at the conference
important results published in journals that might otherwise not be submitted
to the conference due to their length and complexity, and (2) to broaden the
program with lines of work at the intersection between planning/ scheduling
and related fields such as constraint programming, knowledge representation
and reasoning, machine learning, multi-agent systems, robotics, and operations
research.

SCOPE

The scope of ICAPS includes:

o Analytic and empirical studies of planning and scheduling problems and algorithms 
o Analysis of deployed applications of automated planning and scheduling technologies 
o Techniques that extend the scope and complexity of problems that can be solved
o Analytic and implemented tools for supporting automated planning and scheduling.

SUBMISSION

Submissions requirements for the journal presentation track:

o Candidate papers must be published in a leading journal such as (but not
limited to) AIJ and JAIR within the 12 month period prior to the submission
deadline.  Papers that are in press may be submitted as long as the final
camera-ready version is available.  Extensions of papers that have been
previously presented at ICAPS or another major AI conference cannot be
submitted to this track.

o Submissions should include: (1) a complete citation for the published paper,
(2) a copy of the paper with its final camera-ready contents, (3) a brief
summary of the key results and contributions, and (4) a statement explaining
what parts of the paper have been previously presented at any major AI
conference.

o Submissions or questions should be sent via email to the organizer of the
Journal Presentation Track: Shlomo Zilberstein <shlomo at cs.umass.edu>.

o Submissions will go through an expedited selection process.  Selection
criteria include significance of the results, relevance to the planning and
scheduling community, and how well the work fits the objectives of the track.

IMPORTANT DATES

o Submission deadline: February 15, 2013
o Notification of acceptance: March 10, 2013

TRACK ORGANIZER
