    15. Workshop Planning/ Scheduling and Configuration/Design

                              17. - 18. September 2001
                                       Wien/ Vienna

                                  Workshop at KI 2001


    The fields of planning, scheduling, configuration, and design have many
    features in common and are often tackled by similar technologies.
    However, the communities do not overlap and joint meetings are rather rare.
    The PuK-workshop will be such a joint meeting and provide the possibility
    for the exchange of ideas, concepts, and problems between researchers
    from the areas mentioned.
    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.

    General Topics
    The general topics of interest of the PuK comunity 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.

    Focus: Scheduling
    Similar to some earlier workshops we intend to focus on one area.
    This year, part of the workshop will be specially focused on Scheduling.
    Within the focal part of the workshop we anticipate several sessions dealing
    specifically with this year's focus. In that context we solicit papers on
    such as

    -- combinations of planning and scheduling problems or scheduling and
        design problems,
         e.g. algorithms for hybrid planning and scheduling tasks
    -- new aproaches for representation and solution of scheduling problems
    -- development and evaluation of scheduling systems
    -- actual problem areas in scheduling
          e.g. multi-agent scheduling, multi-site scheduling or transportation
    -- combination of AI and OR methods for solving scheduling problems
    -- classification of scheduling problems,
           e.g. reactive versus predictive, hard versus easy.

    Paper submission
    Papers in English or German are requested especially for the focal issue
    but will be also accepted for the other research topics. The papers should
    be up to 8 pages and will be reviewed by the organizing/ program committee.
    Please sent papers electronically in PDF, PS or Word-Format to the contact
    address below and use the KI2001-style. Selected papers may be included
    in a special issue of AICOM.

    All attendancies have to register for KI 2001.
