List of Accepted Papers

Call for Papers

The program committee of ICAPS 2014 invites submissions of published journal papers for the Journal Presentation Track, successfully initiated in 2013.

The track is designed to provide a forum to discuss important results in the area of automated planning and scheduling that appeared recently (from September, 2012 and onwards) in selective journals, but have not been previously presented at ICAPS or major AI conference. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to give an oral presentation at the conference and contribute an extended abstract to the conference proceedings.

The goal of this track is two-fold:

  1. To provide authors an opportunity to present at the conference important results published in journals that might otherwise not be submitted to the conference due to their length and complexity.
  2. To broaden the program with lines of work at the intersection between planning/scheduling and related fields such as constraint programming, knowledge representation and reasoning, machine learning, multi-agent systems, robotics, and operations research.


The scope of ICAPS includes:

  • Analytic and empirical studies of planning and scheduling problems and algorithms
  • Analysis of deployed applications of automated planning and scheduling technologies
  • Techniques that extend the scope and complexity of problems that can be solved
  • Analytic and implemented tools for supporting automated planning and scheduling.

We especially welcome papers presenting significant applications and work related to planning in robotics, in line with the special emphasis placed on this topic at ICAPS’14.


Submissions requirements for the journal presentation track:

  • Candidate papers must be published in a leading journal such as (but not limited to) AIJ, JAIR, JAAMAS, and other relevant, possibly inter-disciplinary leading Journals from September 2012 until the submission deadline.
  • Papers that are in press may be submitted as long as the final camera-ready version is available.
  • Extensions of papers that have been previously presented at ICAPS or another major AI conference (such as IJCAI, AAAI, ECAI) cannot be submitted to this track.

Submissions should include:

  1. a complete citation for the published paper,
  2. a copy of the paper with its final camera-ready contents,
  3. a brief summary of the key results and contributions, and
  4. a statement explaining what parts of the paper have been previously presented at any major AI conference.

Submissions or questions should be sent via email to the organizer of the Journal Presentation Track: Ronen Brafman

Submissions will go through an expedited selection process. Selection criteria include significance of the results, relevance to the planning and scheduling community, and how well the work fits the objectives of the track and the conference program.
