Call For Papers

22nd International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling
June 24-28, 2012, Atibaia, Sao Paulo, Brazil

Call for Papers

The 22nd International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling, ICAPS'12, will take place in Atibaia, Sao Paulo, Brazil, June 24-28, 2012. ICAPS'12 is part of the ICAPS conference series, the premier forum for exchanging news and research results on theory and applications of intelligent planning and scheduling technology.

The organizing committee of ICAPS'12 invites paper submissions on topics related to automated planning and scheduling. The purpose of the conference is to promote research in automated planning and scheduling through analysis and dissemination of the foundational theory, the technologies, and their application to significant problems. The focus of the conference program is on:

Analytic and empirical studies of planning and scheduling problems as well as algorithms for solving them;

Studies applying automated planning and scheduling technologies to real problems and descriptions of deployed applications;

Techniques that extend the complexity and the types of problems that can be solved with current techniques; and

Analytic and implemented tools for supporting automated planning and scheduling.

We particularly welcome application papers providing novel insights about either planning and scheduling, or their application in the real world, as well as papers that bring into planning useful computational technologies from other areas of AI/CS.

Following the most recent editions of ICAPS, the authors will be allowed to submit two types of papers:

Full technical papers

Short papers

The authors will indicate the type of paper at submission time. The main body of text can be up to 8 pages for full technical papers and up to 4 pages for short papers, but they may use one extra page containing only bibliographical references. Submissions must be in the AAAI format ( For more information, see the submission instructions on the conference web site ( 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). Authors of award-winning papers (best papers, best student papers and runners-up) will have the opportunity to submit extended versions of their papers for fast track review to the "best paper track" of either the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research or to Artificial Intelligence.
Special Track on Continuous Planning

This year ICAPS is pleased to introduce a special track on Continuous Planning. This is intended as a multi-disciplinary track that focuses on all elements of online systems that perform real-time planning, execution, monitoring and adaptation. Topics include, but not limited to, real-time planning, planning in mixed discrete-continuous domains, planning for systems with hidden state, plan monitoring and diagnosis of discrete and continuous systems. Papers are encouraged from a range of neighboring disciplines, including model-based reasoning, hybrid systems, run-time verification, control and robotics. The track has a separate program committee that is drawn from these disciplines.
Author and Reviewer Guidelines

All papers will be reviewed based on the standard criteria for clarity, relevance, significance, originality, and soundness.

Full technical papers are expected to report on new research that makes a substantial technical contribution to the field and is placed in the context of existing work.

Short papers can report on new research or other issues of interest to the ICAPS community. Examples of work suitable for short papers include: novel ideas that are not yet fully developed or whose scope is not large enough for a full paper; important implementation techniques; novel interesting benchmark problems; short experimental studies; interesting applications that are not yet completely solved or analyzed; position or challenge papers; etc.

Authors making multiple submissions must ensure that each submission has significant unique content. Papers submitted to ICAPS'12 may not be submitted to other conferences or journals during the ICAPS'12 review period nor may they be already under review or published in other conferences or journals. Overlength papers will be rejected without review.

Topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

adversarial planning

applications and case studies of planning and scheduling techniques

classical planning

complexity analysis for planning and scheduling

conformant/contingent planning

constraint reasoning/OR techniques for planning and scheduling

distributed and multi-agent planning and scheduling

hierarchical task network planning and knowledge-based planning

knowledge acquisition and engineering for planning and scheduling

machine learning for planning and scheduling

plan and schedule execution, monitoring and repair

plan recognition

planning and scheduling under uncertainty

planning with resources and time constraints

real-time planning and scheduling

robot planning

search for planning and scheduling

Important Dates

The timetable for paper submissions and reviewing is as follows:
Electronic abstracts: Friday, December 9th, 2011
Electronic PDF papers: Friday, December 16th, 2011
Notification of aceptance: Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

The reference timezone for all deadlines is UTC-12. This means that if you are in time anywhere on the world, then you are in time!
