The following workshops have been accepted for ICAPS-09.
co-chairs: Felix Ingrand and Frederic Py
The 4th in the series of workshops on automated planning and execution will bring together researchers working on deliberative and reactive approaches to plan execution, agent architectures for executing plans in real-world environments. The wokshop will highlight the impact of modeling methods and novel approaches to automated reasoning scaling to deal with the dynamism of real environments.
co-chairs: Miguel Salido and Roman Bartak
The areas of AI planning and scheduling have seen important advances thanks to the application of constraint satisfaction models and techniques, especially in integrating plan synthesis capabilities with time and resource allocation. The workshop aims at providing a forum to discuss recent advances in applying constraint satisfaction techniques in planning and scheduling.
co-chairs: Mark Boddy and Stefan Edelkamp
The general aim is to bring together people from network safety or security and AI people, especially in planning and scheduling. We strive at opening the planning community to challenges posed in web communication and (inter/intra) network security. For the long run, we aim at seed a workshop series on "Security and AI". The workshop contents aims at advanced, intelligent planning and scheduling systems for detecting and defending attacks from the internet both in local area and wide area networks as early as possible. In addition, fraudulent access in security-critical processes of enterprises is covered.
co-chairs: Juan Fernández, Laura Sebastiá and Paolo Traverso
The workshop on AI P&S for Ontology’s and Semantic Web is aimed to explore the use of ontology-based knowledge models in AI P&S, as well as the use of AI P&S techniques as the core technology to put in practice the potential of semantic web services.
co-chairs: Saddek Bensalem, Klaus Havelund and Kim Larsen
The objective of this workshop is to nurture the interaction between the verification and validation (V&V) community and the planning and scheduling (P&S) community. Planning and scheduling systems require a high level of assurance. The workshop will investigate the application of V&V technologies to achieve such assurance.
co-chairs: Amanda Coles, Andrew Coles, Sergio Jimenez Celorrio, Susana Fernandez Arregui and Tomas de la Rosa
This workshop will provide a forum for presenting and discussing learning in planning. Our aim is to maintain the momentum building up around this exciting area, looking back over what has been achieved and at the results of the last IPC; and looking forwards to where research is heading.
co-chairs: Luis Castillo, Gabriella Cortellessa and Neil Yorke-Smith
The SPARK'09 workshop is the second in a series aiming to foster the long-term establishment of a forum on topics connected to the deployment of planning and scheduling applications. The discussion will consider technology, challenges, and experiences in applying P&S systems, from their conception to deployment and evaluation.
co-chairs: Carmel Domshlak, Malte Helmert and Joerg Hoffmann
The aim of this workshop is to better understand current planning heuristics. What are their underlying ideas? What are their limitations? How can limitations be overcome? Contributions do not have to show that a new heuristic "beats the competition". Instead, we seek above all crisp and meaningful ideas and understanding
co-chairs: Maxim Likhachev, Bhaskara Marthi, Conor McGann and David E. Smith
Motion planning has been widely studied in the robotics community while task planning has been emphasized in the AI community. Increasingly, real-world problems combine aspects of both. This workshop will encourage interaction between these communities to identify problems of common interest and find synergy in available solution techniques.
co-chairs: Christian Fritz, Sheila McIlraith, Siddharth Srivastava and Shlomo Zilberstein
This workshop explores rich plan representations and algorithms that address the longstanding challenge of scalability. Topics include new action and plan representations; synthesis, learning and analysis of plans that solve multiple problem instances that can vary in configuration or size; and using domain control knowledge to solve or represent solutions for classes of problems.
