Call For Papers: ICAPS'14 Journal Presentation Track

The 24th International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling,
ICAPS 2014, will take place in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, June 21-26,
2013.  The program committee of ICAPS 2014 invites submissions of
published journal papers for the Journal Presentation Track,
successfully initiated in 2013.

The Journal Presentation Track is designed to provide a forum to discuss
important results in the area of automated planning and scheduling that
appeared recently (from September, 2012 and onwards) in selective
journals, but have not been previously presented at ICAPS or major
robotics or general AI conferences.

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 robotics, multi-agent systems, constraint programming,
knowledge representation and reasoning, machine learning, and operations
research.


SCOPE

The scope of ICAPS includes:

* Analytic and empirical studies of planning and scheduling problems and
algorithms
* Analysis of deployed applications of automated planning and scheduling
technologies
* Techniques that extend the scope and complexity of problems that can
be solved
* Tools for supporting automated planning and scheduling
* Applied, situated or embodied planning

We especially welcome papers presenting significant applications and
work related to planning in robotics, in line with the special emphasis
placed on this topic at ICAPS'14.


SUBMISSION

Submissions requirements for the journal presentation track:

* Candidate papers must be published in a leading journal such as (but
not limited to) AIJ, JAIR, JAAMAS, and other relevant, possibly
inter-disciplinary leading Journals from September 2012 until 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 general AI
conference (such as IJCAI, AAAI, ECAI) cannot be submitted to this track.

* 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.

* Submissions or questions should be sent via email to the organizer of
the Journal Presentation Track: Ronen Brafman <brafman at cs.bgu.ac.il>

* 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 and the conference program.


IMPORTANT DATES

* Submission deadline: March 1, 2014
* Notification of acceptance: April 1, 2014
* Camera-ready abstracts due: April 25, 2014
