ICAPS International Summer School on Planning & Scheduling


ICAPS 2006 Summer School on AI Planning and Scheduling

JUNE 3-5, 2006



Domain independent planning is an area of intense research interest,
encompassing a wide range of techniques and approaches, and
increasingly applied in different areas.

This school brings together international subject experts. It is aimed
at PhD students and young researchers in the field,  as well as at
industrial participants. The school will provide an introduction to the
broad range of current planning approaches, will present applications
of planning in several areas, and  will provide a lively forum for
attendees to discuss their research lines. Previous Summer Schools on
AI Planning have been held in 2000, 2002 and 2003 and have been a great

The school is to be held in the weekend immediately before the
International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling
(ICAPS'06), located in the beautiful Lake District of North-West
England.  Participation in both the conference and the school is highly
