ICAPS-04 Workshop: Connecting Planning Theory with Practice
June 4, 2004. Whistler, British Columbia, Canada.
The theoretical and applied branches of the AI planning community have =
both made significant progress in recent years. New strategies allow =
research systems to solve sizable problems that can include time and =
resource considerations. Applied work has succeeded in controlling =
complex devices and is breaking into broader application areas with the=
mixed-initiative paradigm. The concern is the gap between the issues =
and technologies being pursued in the branches. Theory centered work =
tends to focus on search speed and finding shortest plans while applied=
practitioners look for qualitatively different plans and ways to open =
the planning process to afford users more control over the solutions.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers from both=
branches to seek a cross-fertilization of issues and technologies. We =
are seeking two types of paper.
* Position papers that provide strong thought provoking insights in to =
the relationship between planning theory and practice.
* Technical Papers that describe theoretical work which is ripe for =
exploration or applications that have uncovered significant theoretical=
