***CALL FOR PAPERS***

27th UK PLANNING AND SCHEDULING Special Interest Group
******************************************************
December 11-12 2008			 Edinburgh, UK
http://emfs1.eps.hw.ac.uk/~ceeyrp/PlanSIG/

The PlanSIG workshop is a yearly forum where academics,  
industrialists, and research students can meet and discuss current  
issues in an informal setting. We especially aim to bring together  
researchers attacking different aspects of planning and scheduling  
problems, and to introduce new researchers to the community. In  
recent years the SIG has attracted an international gathering, and we  
continue to welcome contributions from around the world.

The 27th Workshop of the UK PLANNING AND SCHEDULING Special Interest  
Group will be hosted by Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, United  
Kingdom at the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (IMCS)  
in Edinburgh's New Town.

Important Dates
****************

Submissions: October 13th 2008 to [log in to unmask]
Notification: November 14th 2008
Early registration: November 07th-21st 2008
Final versions: November 21st
Workshop: December 11-12, 2008

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
**************

Algorithms:
*********
Novel planning and scheduling algorithms.

Applications:
**********
Empirical studies of existing planning/scheduling systems; domain- 
specific techniques; heuristic techniques; user interfaces for  
planning and scheduling; evaluation metrics for plans/schedules;  
verification and validation of plans/schedules.

Application examples of real world problems are particularly welcomed  
- from Space to Computer Games.

Architectures:
***********
Real-time support for planning/scheduling/control; mixed-initiative  
planning and user interfaces; integration of planning and scheduling;  
continuous planning systems; integration of planning/scheduling and  
Fault Detection Isolation and Recovery (FDIR); planning and  
scheduling in autonomous systems.

Environmental and Task Models:
***************************
Analyses of the dynamics of environments, tasks, and domains with  
regard to different models of planning and execution; verification  
and validation of domain models.

Formal Models:
************
Reasoning about knowledge, action, and time; representations and  
ontologies for planning and scheduling; search methods and analysis  
of algorithms; formal characterisation of existing planners and  
schedulers.

Intelligent Agency:
***************
Resource-bounded reasoning; distributed problem solving; integrating  
reaction and deliberation.

Knowledge engineering for planning:
******************************
domain construction tools and techniques, knowledge elicitation,  
ontology development

Learning:
********
Learning in the context of planning and execution; learning new plans  
and operators; learning in the context of scheduling and schedule  
maintenance.

Memory Based Approaches:
***********************
Case-based planning/scheduling; plan and operator learning and reuse;  
incremental planning.

Reactive Systems:
***************
Environmentally driven devices/behaviours; reactive control;  
behaviours in the context of minimal representations; schedule  
maintenance.

Robotics:
********
Motion and path planning; planning and control; planning and  
perception, integration of planning and perceptual systems.

Constraint-based Planning/Scheduling and Control Techniques:
***************************************************
Constraint/preference propagation techniques, variable/value ordering  
heuristics, intelligent backtracking/RMS-based techniques, iterative  
repair heuristics, etc.

Coordination Issues in Decentralised/Distributed planning/scheduling:
********************************************************
Coordination issues in both homogeneous and heterogeneous systems,  
system architecture issues, integration of strategic and tactical  
decision making; collaborative planning/scheduling.

Iterative Improvement Techniques for Combinatorial Optimisation:
******************************************************
Genetic algorithms, simulated annealing, tabu search, neural nets,  
etc applied to scheduling and/or planning.

Artificial Intelligence and Operations Research:
**************************************
Comparative studies and innovative applications combining AI and OR  
techniques applied to scheduling and/or planning.

Planning/scheduling under uncertainty:
********************************
Coping with uncertain, ill-specified or changing domains,  
environments and problems; application of uncertainty reasoning  
techniques to planning/scheduling, including MDPs, POMDPs, Belief  
Networks, stochastic programming, and stochastic satisfiability.


Submissions 	
**********

Full papers: (8 pages). These should report work in progress or  
completed work. Authors of full papers that are accepted by the  
Programme Committee will be invited to give a talk on the paper.

Short papers: (2 pages) These should report views or ambitions, or  
describe problems. The author(s) will be able to discuss the paper  
informally with others at the workshop and will be invited to give a  
short presentation on their work.
