In 2016 ICAPS will run a robotics track as part of the main conference. Following on from successful events in 2014 and 2015, this will again emphasize the importance and opportunities of reuniting the fields of AI planning and (autonomous) robotics. This provides an opportunity for the AI planning and scheduling community to respond to the challenges that robotics applications pose and contribute to the advance of intelligent robotics. This is also an opportunity for the robotics community to propose integrated solutions, discuss its challenges related to planning for autonomous robots (deliberative, reactive, continuous planning and execution etc.) and present its expectations of the planning and scheduling community.
The ICAPS Conference
The 26th International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling (ICAPS) will be held in London, UK. 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 primary objective of ICAPS is to foster the research in the field of automated planning and scheduling.
