                           ** CALL FOR PAPERS **

                     7th ICAPS Workshop on Planning and Robotics
                                (PlanRob‚ 2019)

      ICAPS 2019 Workshop Berkley, California, USA July 11 or July 12, 2019

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 relevant
issues, research and development progress, future directions and open
challenges related to P&S when applied to Robotics.

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.

Important Dates
Paper submission: March 15, 2019
Notification of acceptance: April 2019
Camera-ready version due: June 2019
Workshop Date: July 11 or July 12, 2019

There are two types of submissions: short position statements and regular
papers. Position papers are a maximum of 4 (four) pages. Regular papers are
a maximum of 10 (ten) pages.

All papers should be typeset in the AAAI style, described at:

Accepted papers will be published on the workshop website and printed as a

The papers must be submitted in a PDF format via EasyChair system

Notice that papers under review (e.g., submitted to IJCAI-2019) are also
welcome, however, in order to avoid potential conflicts these manuscripts
should be prepared as anonymous submissions for a double blind reviewing

The organizers will investigate the availability of journal editors in
order to invite a selection of accepted papers from the workshop to a
special issue or post-proceedings volume.
