AAAI-2000 Workshop on
Austin Convention Center, Austin, Texas, USA, July 30, 2000
|Call for Papers/Participation|
The management of constraints is an integral part of today's planning systems. It includes the simple orderings in POP systems as well as the exclusion relations of today's cutting-edge Graphplan-based planners. The need for expressive formalisms with efficient propagation and refinement techniques to extract solutions will grow further given the ongoing orientation toward real-world problems, which are constrained as regards temporal, spatial and many other resources. Constraint programming has much to contribute in this domain.
The workshop will bring together researchers from the AI planning and the constraint programming (including SAT) communities. Despite early work to integrate activity planning and constraint reasoning, there has been little recent exchange between these communities. New interest is now being shown and results from the SAT field have already been integrated in some planners. The workshop will promote communication between researchers and seeks to highlight new and interesting ideas for combining planning with constraint programming. Topics of interest include:
In addition to paper presentations, there will be invited talks and panel discussions addressing the following topics:
Attendance will be limited to 40 participants. Participants will be selected based on refereed submissions. If you wish to attend but are not submitting a paper, please send a one-page statement of interest by the submission deadline.
Paper submissions should be no longer than six pages. Guidelines for the submission format can be found at http://www.aaai.org/Publications/Templates/macros-link.html.
Papers may be submitted by e-mailing a document's URL to the workshop chair. If this is not possible, please contact the workshop chair. Accepted submissions will be distributed and included in an AAAI Press technical report.
