Call for Papers

The International Conference on Automated Planning & Scheduling (ICAPS) is the premier forum for researchers and practitioners in intelligent planning and scheduling and related fields. Topics of relevance to the conference  include planning and scheduling theory and practice, as well as applications of planning and scheduling technology to challenging problem domains. The organizing committee solicits paper submissions on all aspects of planning and scheduling, including but not limited to the topics listed below.  Submissions that link planning and scheduling to the related fields of constraint reasoning, uncertainty, verification and validation, and operations research, are strongly encouraged.

Submitted papers should contain theoretical or experimental results that advance significantly the state of the art in planning and scheduling, or should  report on the use of planning and scheduling technology in operational applications. Submissions will be judged according to their scientific and technical merits, as well as their relevance to the themes of the conference. In previous years, roughly one third of the submitted papers have been accepted. Papers must be prepared according to the AAAI style template ( and must be no more than ten (10) pages long, including figures and bibliography. Papers must be in PDF format and should be submitted electronically via the submissions link on the conference web site. Authors of accepted papers must present their work at the conference. We encourage authors of accepted papers involving experimental results to make their systems and data available on the web and demonstrate their systems at the conference.
