                ECAI 2000 Workshop on

New Results in Planning, Scheduling, and Design

14th Workshop of the Special Interest Group on Planning/
Scheduling and Design/ Configuration of the GI (PuK 2000)

                21. - 22. August 2000
                        Berlin

The workshop is the 14th in an annual series where researchers
and practitioners present and discuss new approaches, systems
and problem areas in planning, scheduling, design and configuration.
Traditionally, the focus is on AI related topics including knowledge 
representation and problem solving as well as system design. The
fields of planning, scheduling, and design are sharing methodologies
and often use the same or similar AI based techniques. However,
the communities do not overlap and joint meetings are rather rare.
The workshop therefore aims in bringing together researchers as
well as practitioners in the areas of planning, scheduling and
design for the presentation and discussion of new problem areas,
new problem solving approaches and new systems developed.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Applications and architectures:
  empirical studies of existing systems; new and prototypical
  systems; modelling of planning/ scheduling/ design systems;
  user interfaces.
- Knowledge representation and problem solving techniques:
  domain-specific techniques; heuristic techniques; distributed
  problem solving; constraint-based techniques; iterative improvement;
  integrating reaction and user-interaction.
- Learning:
  learning in the context of planning, scheduling and design.

Papers can present new concepts as well as finished projects. Please submit
papers between 6 and 12 pages electronically (in pdf, word or postscript
format) to the contact address below.
The papers will be reviewed by the program committee and notification of
acceptance will be until May, 3, 2000.
Presentation of the papers will be limited to 20 minutes. Sufficent time
for discussion will be after the presentations and in the working
breaks between the sessions. All attendancies have to register for ECAI 2000.
