Planning & Scheduling Group to Have a Significant Presence at the International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling

The Planning and Scheduling Group will be presenting a large amount of work at the upcoming International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling (ICAPS) 2019. Planning and Scheduling Senior Research Computer Scientist J. Benton is also the Conference Co-Chair, and Planning & Scheduling Group Lead Jeremy Frank is the Fundraising Co-Chair. The conference will be held at the University of California at Berkeley from July 11 – 15.

The following is a list of papers that will be presented at the conference:

BACKGROUND: ICAPS is the premier forum for researchers and practitioners in planning and scheduling - two technologies that are critical to manufacturing, space systems, software engineering, robotics, education, and entertainment. The ICAPS conference resulted from merging two bi-annual conferences, namely the International Conference on Artificial Intelligence Planning and Scheduling (AIPS) and the European Conference on Planning (ECP).

The primary objectives of ICAPS are to further the field of automated planning and scheduling through the organization of technical meetings, including the annual ICAPS conference; through the organization of summer schools, tutorials, and training activities at various events; through the organization of planning and scheduling competitions, benchmarking, and other means of advancing and assessing the state-of-the-art in the field; by promoting the involvement of young scientists in the field through scholarships and other means; and by promoting and disseminating publications, planning and scheduling systems, domains, simulators, software tools, and technical material.
