    The field of artificial intelligence planning and scheduling
    could provide the technology to increase the autonomy of systems
    by making them more flexible, robust, and adaptive.
    Planning and scheduling technology is relevant to many aspects of
    system-supported synthesis, execution, and monitoring of courses
    of actions, activities, and tasks. With that it is central to a
    variety of processes in most enterprises and organisations.
    The technology has a particular impact in view of the emerging
    electronic markets and the new associated business processes.
    In particular, it can fruitfully contribute to manage the
    complexity and the flexibility issues posed by Web applications and
    mobile and collaborative work via the Web.
    The fast evolution of Web applications has lead to a broad notion
    of e-tasks, including but not limited to e-commerce, where the
    relevant topics are reliability, flexibility, adaptation, automation
    of activities in the unpredictable, dynamical and time bounded Web
    environment. Applications such as supply chain management or other
    multistage Web transactions reinforce the need for increasingly
    autonomous and flexible systems. This includes the construction
    and operation of adaptive Web sites, the planning and scheduling
    of complex Web transactions as well as their monitoring.

    The aim of the workshop is to present and discuss in a working and
    collaborative atmosphere current results and perspectives for
    planning and scheduling technologies in new methods of work, in
    particular through the exploitation of e-commerce/e-work and the
    Internet, and through new modes of mobile and collaborative working.
    In this context, examples of topics of interest for the workshop
    are (but not limited to):

     -models, languages and integration issues for planning and scheduling
       on the Web
     -Web-based collaborative work
     -user interface and other issues relating to mobile planning and
     -planning models for online interaction, user monitoring,
     -process management and workflow
     -distance learning, online education, e-learning
     -information gathering
     -automatic and adaptive generation/maintenance of Web resources
     -supply chain management
     -mixed-initiative planning and scheduling for Web applications

    The workshop is organized in conjunction with ECP-01 (6th European Conference
    in Planning ) and sponsored by PLANET, The European Network of Excellence in
    Planning (
