Apologies for multiple copies

As the ICAPS conference was postponed, we decided to further extend the 
submission deadline for PlanRob WS.

We are currently "planning and scheduling" to figure out new deadlines.
We will send soon more detailed information.

*For the moment, the submission via easychair will remain active.*

Details will be available on ICAPS website

8th ICAPS Workshop on Planning and Robotics

(PlanRob‚ 2020)


  ICAPS 2020 Workshop

Nancy, France

                            June 14 or June 15, 2020


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 

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 ICAPS tracks. We are 

to explore different ways to synchronize with Humans and Robotics Track but

also with Knowledge Engineering, Integrated Execution and System 

track. The PlanRob WS aims to maintain a more informal forum where also 

preliminary/visionary works can be discussed stimulating direct and open


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 7, 2020

Notification of acceptance: April 1st, 2020

Camera-ready version due:TBD

Workshop Date: June 14 or June 15, 2020



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.com/v3/__http://www.aaai.org/Publications/Author/author.php__;!!LIr3w8kk_Xxm!816UBar5Cckk744UsEPuBA6jkihdnY1wEbAKn4VxEtscsvDbp5plFsQ-a01v3V8dPyDI3OrP$  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

(https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=planrob2020__;!!LIr3w8kk_Xxm!816UBar5Cckk744UsEPuBA6jkihdnY1wEbAKn4VxEtscsvDbp5plFsQ-a01v3V8dP5bWAuGD$ ).

Notice that papers under review (e.g., submitted to IJCAI-2020) are also 

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 

to invite a selection of accepted papers from the workshop to a special 

or post-proceedings volume.
