            PLANET International Summer School on AI Planning 2002

                            September 16-22, 2002
                              Halkidiki, Greece


    The previous PLANET Summer School on AI Planning in 2000 was a great
    success. It said

            Domain independent planning is a thriving area of research in
            both Europe and the US, encompassing an increasingly diverse
            range of techniques and approaches. Although domain
            independent planning has been a lively area of academic
            research for many years, the resulting technology has had few
            large scale applications in the industrial and commercial
            sectors. An important barrier to their use has been the need
            to acquire planning expertise before it is possible to be an
            effective user.

    That remains true, so in 2002 there will be another summer school,
    similar in structure but covering different topics from all parts of
