6th ICAPS Workshop on Planning and Robotics (PlanRob‚ 2018)


ICAPS 2018 Workshop

Delft, The Netherlands

June 25 or June 26, 2018


Topics and Objectives


AI Planning & Scheduling (P&S) methods are crucial to enable intelligent
robots to perform autonomous, flexible, and interactive behaviors, but a
deep integration into robotic architectures is needed for their effective
deployment. This requires a close collaboration between researchers from
both the AI and the Robotics communities. In this direction, this workshop
aims at constituting a stable, long-term forum where researchers from both
the P&S and the Robotics communities can openly discuss about research
progress, future directions and open challenges related to P&S when applied
to Robotics.

The PlanRob workshop is proposed in synergy with the ICAPS Robotics track.
We are in contact with the Robotics Track organizers trying to explore
different ways to synchronize with them. The PlanRob WS aims to maintain a
more informal forum where also more preliminary/visionary works can be
discussed stimulating direct and open interactions.

Topics of interest include but not limited to the following:

- planning domain representations for robotics applications;

- mission, path, and motion planning for robots;

- integrated planning and execution in robotic architectures;

- planning and coordination methods for multi-robot teams;

- mixed-initiative planning and sliding autonomy for robotic systems;

- human-aware planning and execution in human-robot interaction;

- adversarial action planning in competitive robotic domains;

- formal methods for robot planning and control;

- P&S methods for optimization and adaptation in robotics;

- benchmark planning domains for robots;

- optimizing behavior in large scale automated or semi-automated systems;

- real-world planning applications for autonomous and intelligent robots.

The organizers will investigate the availability of journal editors in
order to invite higher quality papers from the PlanRob 2018 edition to a
special issue or post-proceedings volume.
