29th International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling (ICAPS)

13 Jul 2019 - 11:45 to 15 Jul 2019 - 21:45
13-15 July 2019 @ Berkeley, CA, USA
29th International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling (ICAPS)
13-15 July 2019 @ Berkeley, CA, USA
The Robotics track welcomes research contributions in the general areas of planning and scheduling (P&S), which relate to the advancement of intelligent robots. P&S models and techniques are important for enabling autonomous, flexible, and interactive behaviors in robotic systems. A deep integration of these methods into robotic architectures can assist their effective deployment. In this direction, the ICAPS-2019 Robotics track provides an opportunity for the planning and robotics communities to share research progress in the area of robot planning and showcase the use of planning and scheduling technology in robotics applications.
Submission of papers that have been demonstrated on actual robotic systems or those that focus on impacting real-world application domains (e.g. logistics, transportation, manufacturing, etc.) are specifically encouraged.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
- integrated task and motion planning
- learning methods for robot planning
- integrated planning and execution for long-term autonomy
- plan execution, failure detection and recovery
- planning with uncertainty in robotics
- multi-robot planning, scheduling/coordination, and execution
- planning for perception
- manipulation task and/or motion planning
- explanation models and learning for autonomous robots
- human-aware planning and execution in human-robot interaction
- mixed-initiative planning and adjustable autonomy
- planning methods in cognitive robotics
- adversarial action planning in competitive robotic domains
- representation and acquisition of planning models for robotics
- formal methods for robot planning and control
- safety, ethics, and transparency in robot planning
- benchmark planning domains for robots
- real-world applications of planning for intelligent robots
Author Guidelines
Authors may submit long papers (8 pages plus up to one page of references) or short papers (4 pages plus up to one page of references). The type of paper must be indicated at submission time.
Both long and short papers will be reviewed against the standard criteria of relevance, originality, significance, clarity and soundness, and are expected to meet the high standards set by ICAPS. Short papers may be of narrower scope. For example, they can either address a highly specific issue, or propose/evaluate a small, yet important, extension of previous work or a new idea.
Authors making multiple submissions must ensure that each submission has significant unique content. Papers submitted to ICAPS 2019 may not be submitted to other conferences or journals during the ICAPS 2019 review period, nor may be already under review or published in other conferences or journals. Over-length papers will be rejected without review.
Submission Instructions
All submissions will be made electronically, the paper submission link is https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icaps2019
Submitted PDF papers should be anonymous for double-blind reviewing, adhere to the page limits of the relevant track CFP/submission type (long or short), and follow the AAAI author kit instructions for formatting:
In addition to the submitted PDF paper, authors can submit supplementary material (videos, technical proofs, additional experimental results) for their paper. Please make sure that the supporting material is also anonymized. Papers should be self-contained; reviewers are encouraged, but not obligated, to consider supporting material in their decision.
The proceedings will be published by AAAI Press. All accepted papers will be published in the main conference proceedings and will be presented orally at the conference (full papers will be allocated more time).
Important Dates
- Abstracts (electronic submission) due: November 16, 2018
