Overview & Topics

The ability of a robotic system to reason about its surroundings, its
goals, and its actions, is paramount to developing robots that act
autonomously and appropriately. However, the common goal of AI and
Robotics researchers to realize intelligent robot systems has not yet
led to fully AI-driven robots, in spite of great attainments in both
research areas. One of the major hindrances is the lack of attention
to integrated reasoning. This is the problem of jointly reasoning
about heterogeneous and inter-dependent aspects of the world,
expressed in different forms and at different levels of
abstraction. The focus of this workshop is on the general techniques,
the applications, the scopes, and the challenges that lie behind the
integration of several reasoning systems.


Forms of integrated reasoning that are relevant to this workshop
include, but are not limited to:

- Spatio-temporal planning and coordination for multiple robots
- Combined task and motion planning
- Formal methods in combining knowledge representation and reasoning
  approaches
- Knowledge representation systems for robots
- Motion planning with temporal specifications
- Reasoning about time, space, resources and/or tasks for robots
