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.

The PlanRob workshop is proposed in synergy with the ICAPS Robotic track. 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.

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: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.aaai.org_Publications_Author_author.php&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=WBymi0rno9xV6Ad-PcbOjYgVFsjvG64eq4yg8VqQ-P0&s=57g4_0OUWbbzv1patNcadi_OgCuOUQ4xld49mOsoPbE&e=<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.aaai.org_Publications_Author_author.php&d=DwMGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=9SFtqa9k3tD9V-ucC59P-96pXpJ5-DQf-dgKEXZ0xEA&s=AQ63ejyhX429nCRTtRzgcd0Wg6s2pInIn_c8Np8is4E&e=> removing AAAI copyright. Accepted papers will be published on the workshop website and printed as a hard-copy.

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 process.

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.
