Call For Papers

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=
