Call For Papers

Call for Papers
ICAPS 2020, the 30th International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling, will take place in Nancy, France, June 14-19, 2020. ICAPS 2020 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 ICAPS 2020 program committee invites paper submissions related to automated planning and scheduling. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Activity, goal and plan recognition
Adversarial planning
Applications and case studies
Classical planning
Complexity analysis
Conformant/contingent planning
Constraint reasoning
Control and optimization of dynamical systems
Distributed and multi-agent planning
Distributed and multi-agent scheduling
Execution, monitoring and repair
HTN and knowledge-based planning
Human computer interaction for planning and scheduling systems
Knowledge engineering for planning and scheduling
Learning in planning and scheduling
Mixed initiative planning and scheduling systems
Model-based reasoning
Multi-objective planning and scheduling
Online/real-time planning and scheduling
OR techniques
Planning activities, motions and paths
Planning in mixed discrete / continuous domains
Planning under (non-probabilistic) uncertainty
Probabilistic planning, MDPs and POMDPs
Reasoning about action and change
Robust planning with incomplete models
Scheduling under uncertainty
Search techniques
Temporal planning
In addition to the main conference track, ICAPS 2020 will include the following tracks

Novel Applications Track
Special Track on Human and Robotics
Special Track on Knowledge Engineering, Integrated Execution, and System Architectures
Special Track on Planning and Learning
Additionally, the ICAPS program will include journal presentations, workshops, tutorials, each having separate submission and notification dates, to be announced separately.

Important Dates
November 15, 2019 Abstracts due (electronic submission)
November 20, 2019 Papers due (electronic submission, PDF)
January 6-8, 2020 Author feedback period
January 20, 2020 Notification of acceptance or rejection
The reference timezone for all deadlines is UTC-12. That is, as long as there is still some place anywhere in the world where the deadline has not yet passed, you are on time!

Author Guidelines
Authors may submit long papers (8 pages AAAI style 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. All papers, regardless of length, will be reviewed against the standard criteria of relevance, originality, significance, clarity, soundness, and are expected to meet the same high standards set by ICAPS. Short papers may be of narrower scope, for example by addressing a highly specific issue, or proposing or evaluating a small, yet important, extension of previous work or new idea. Overlength papers will be rejected without review.

Authors making multiple submissions must ensure that each submission has significant unique content. Papers submitted to ICAPS 2020 may not be submitted to other conferences or journals during the ICAPS 2020 review period nor may they be already under review or published in other conferences or journals.

We will have an arrangement with ECAI 2020, through which selected papers reviewed by the ICAPS 2020 program committee, instead of being simply rejected, will be transferred (together with their reviews) to the ECAI 2020 program committee for consideration as ECAI2020 submissions, and vice versa. Author’s permission for this transfer will be asked in the submission form.

As the ICAPS 2020 notification date falls between the IJCAI 2020 abstract and full paper submission dates, ICAPS allows abstract submission to IJCAI with the expectation that papers accepted to ICAPS will be withdrawn from IJCAI. [Authors are responsible for knowing and following the appropriate IJCAI rules.]

Submission Instructions
All submissions will be made electronically, through the EasyChair conference system:

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.
