                              AI Planning & Scheduling
                              Conference Announcement
                                  Call for Papers

                                April 23 - 27, 2002
                                  Toulouse, France

    The International Conference on AI Planning & Scheduling (AIPS) is a well
    established scientific meeting for the presentation of new results in the
    growing field of planning and scheduling. The 6th AIPS will take place in
    the spring of 2002 in Toulouse, a major academic city in the south of
    France. The format of the conference will be along a 3 days, single track,
    technical program, highlighted by 3 invited talks. This technical program
    will be preceded by 2 days of workshops and tutorials and by the 3rd edition
    of AIPS planning and scheduling competition. AIPS'02 will be co-located with
    several events, among which mainly :

    - The 2nd International Conference on Knowledge Systems for Coalition
      Opertions KSCO'02, April 23 - 24, 2002

    - The 8th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation
      and Reasoning KR'02, April 22 - 25, 2002

    - The 8th International Workshop on Non- Monotonic Reasoning NMR'02, April
      19 - 21, 2002

    Original papers are welcome in all areas of planning and scheduling
    research. Of particular interest will be papers that address real-world
    problems, bridge the gap between theory and practice, and those that
    effectively combine planning and scheduling with other areas of Computer
    Science. Contributions extending the state of the art and the rational
    foundations for critical issues such as Interactive or Mixed-Initiative
    Planning, Dynamic planning, and Uncertainty or Incompleteness in Planning
    will be particularly encouraged. Topics of interest include:

    _ Planning algorithms
    _ Planning and reasoning about action and change
    _ Planning and learning
    _ Planning and temporal reasoning
    _ Planning under uncertainty
    _ Decision-theoretic planning
    _ Scheduling algorithms
    _ Constraint management approaches to planning and scheduling
    _ Resource management
    _ Mixed-initiative planning
    _ Plan and schedule visualization
    _ Multi-agent planning
    _ Plan execution, monitoring and replanning
    _ Agent architectures for planning and control
    _ Active perception and sensor-based planning
    _ Reactive systems
    _ Applications and domain-specific techniques

    All accepted papers will appear in full format (no short or "poster" papers)
    in the preprints and in AIPS'02 proceedings, published after the conference
    as a book. All papers must be formally presented at the conference, through
    oral presentations, and eventually through demonstrations or posters. Papers
    must not exceed ten (10) pages. They should include a separate title page
    containing the paper's title, name, full address, email address, and
    telephone numbers for all authors, keywords, and a 100-200 word abstract.
