           == ICAPS 2015 ROBOTICS TRACK -- Call for Papers ==

                 The 25th International Conference on
              Automated Planning and Scheduling (ICAPS 2015)

                   June 7-11, 2015, Jerusalem, Israel

                 (icaps15 at easychair.org for inquiries)

Abstracts due: November 14, 2014
Papers due:    November 18, 2014
Notification:  January  20, 2015

Following the initial success in 2014, ICAPS will again run a Robotics
track as part of the main conference to emphasize the importance and
opportunities of reuniting the fields of AI planning and (autonomous)
robotics. In light of the accelerated progress and the growth of
economic importance of advanced robotics technology, it is essential
for the AI planning and scheduling community to respond to the
challenges that these applications pose and contribute to the advance
of intelligent robotics.

The Robotics track will feature research in the planning, execution
and coordination of individual or teams of robots, at the level of
tasks, (manipulation) actions, behaviors and motions. Submission of
work that has been demonstrated on actual robot systems is
specifically encouraged.  Topics include, but are not limited to:

    plan-based robot control
    integration of planning on robots
    combined task and motion/manipulation planning
    planning for perception
    multi-robot planning and coordination
    interleaved planning and execution
    planning for human robot interaction
    acquisition of planning models for robotics
    learning action and task models
    failure detection and recovery


SoCS'15 (http://proj.ise.bgu.ac.il:8080/socs2015/index.html) will be
co-located with ICAPS, with a joint sessions featuring search-related
papers from both conferences.

Author Guidelines

Authors may submit long papers (8 pages plus up to one page of
references) or short papers (4 pages plus up to one page of
references). The type of paper must be indicated at submission
time. For more information, see: http://icaps15.icaps-conference.org

All papers, regardless of length, will be reviewed against the
standard criteria of relevance, originality, significance, clarity and
soundness, and are expected to meet the same high standards set by
ICAPS. Short papers may be of narrower scope, for example by
addressing a highly specific issue, or proposing or evaluating a
small, yet important, extension of previous work or new idea.

Authors making multiple submissions must ensure that each submission
has significant unique content. Papers submitted to ICAPS 2015 may not
be submitted to other conferences or journals during the ICAPS 2015
review period nor may they be already under review or published in
other conferences or journals. Overlength papers will be rejected
without review.

All submissions will be made electronically, through the EasyChair
conference system: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icaps15
Submissions must be in the AAAI format. For more information, see the
submission instructions on ICAPS 2015 submission page.

The proceedings will be published by AAAI Press. All accepted papers
will be published in the main conference proceedings and will be
presented orally at the conference (full papers will be allocated more

Important Dates

Abstracts (electronic submission) due: November 14th, 2014
Papers (electronic submission) due:    November 18th, 2014
