Ames hosted the eighth International Workshop on Planning and Scheduling for Space (IWPSS) on March 25–26, 2013. The workshop was held in the NASA Ames Conference Center.
The IWPSS focuses on technical challenges and opportunities for applying automated planning and scheduling systems to space exploration. Planning and scheduling systems have been successfully deployed to mission ground systems as well as spacecraft. In many cases, these systems have resulted in cost reduction, increased science return, and enabling of new types of scientific observation. An improved process of infusing automated planning and scheduling systems is motivated by the need for these technologies to support an increasingly large, complex suite of missions at ever-shrinking costs. This workshop brings together researchers and developers from all over the world to present their work and discuss recent progress in applying planning and scheduling to space missions.
