COPLAS'09:

ICAPS 2009 Workshop on Constraint Satisfaction Techniques for

Planning and Scheduling Problems

ICAPS 2009
September 19-20, 2009

Thessaloniki, Greece


Call for Paper (txt, pdf)

We invite submissions on any topic relevant to the workshop, particularly those that combine techniques from both perpectives, planning & scheduling, and constraint programming. This includes but is not limited to:

- constraint modelling for planning & scheduling

- reformulations of constraint models for P&S

- global constraints motivated by P&S

- temporal CSPs

- integration of temporal and resource reasoning via CSPs

- search techniques and heuristics

- distributed/parallel solving techniques

- constraint management in P&S systems

- real-life applications

 

Papers must be prepared according to the AAAI style template and must be no more than ten (10) pages long, including figures and bibliography. Papers must be in PDF format and should be submitted via email to Miguel A. Salido (msalido@dsic.upv.es). Every submitted paper will be reviewed by at least two members of the Program Committee. Accepted papers will be included in the workshop notes.

The workshop will be organized in technical sessions, each session will be concluded by a commentary of the session chair. The goal of the commentary is not only to summarise the content of talks but to highlight important novel points and raise questions to foster further discussion. We also plan to have individual commentary of each paper done by other authors in the session. Rather than being a mini-conference, the workshop will focus on opening new research areas and topics, discussing possible solutions, exchanging ideas and approaches, and in general inspiring forthcoming research.

The best papers will be invited to submit to a special issue of Constraints Journal.
