Call for Papers

Following the success of the PlanRob Workshop at ICAPS 2013 in Roma, the ICAPS 2014 chairs have decided to run a Robotics track as part of the ICAPS 2014 main conference.

The main goal of this Robotics track is to present research at the intersection of the Robotics and "Planning and Scheduling" fields. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • combined task and motion/manipulation planning
  • planning for perception
  • multi-robot planning and coordination
  • interleaved planning and execution
  • planning in dynamic environments
  • planning for human robot interaction
  • planning for partially observable and stochastic domains
  • acquisition of planning models for robotics
  • integration of planning on robots
  • learning action and task models
  • planning in open domains

We also want to emphasize the importance of work that has been deployed on a physical robot.

We think this track is a good opportunity to reunite the fields of planning and robotics, and that it will be significantly beneficial to both fields.

The time table will be the same as for the main track:

  • Abstract: October 29, 2013
  • Full Paper Submission: November 5, 2013
  • Notification: December 20, 2013

Submission Instruction

Paper submission is through the Robotics Track EasyChair website

Authors will be allowed to submit two types of papers. Full papers can be up to 8 pages long (plus one more page only for references), while short papers can be up to 4 pages long (plus one more page only for references).

Submissions must be in the AAAI format. For more information, see the submission instructions on ICAPS 2014 submission page.

The proceedings will be published by AAAI Press. All accepted papers will be published in the main conference proceedings and will be presented orally at the conference (full papers will be allocated more time).


Questions on the ICAPS 2014 Robotics track should be sent to: icaps2014roboticstrack@easychair.org


The 2013 PlanRob workshop organizers also plan to submit a proposal for a followup at ICAPS 2014. Hence, the Robotics track and the PlanRob workshop should make two complementary Robotics events at ICAPS 2014.
