Call for Tutorial Proposals
The Organizing Committee of the 16th International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling (ICAPS 2006) invites tutorial proposals. Tutorials will be held on June 6th and 7th, immediately prior to the conference technical sessions.
We invite proposals for half-day or full-day tutorials on automated planning and scheduling, their applications (for instance, space, manufacturing, web services composition, robotics) and topics in related areas such as constraints, control, diagnosis, learning, operations research, search, software engineering. The topics of the tutorials of the last ICAPS conference covered temporal and resource reasoning for planning, scheduling and execution, hard and soft temporal constraint techniques for scheduling problems with preferences and uncertainty, directed model checking and domain modelling for planning.
The main type of tutorial we are looking for are those that are designed to provide a comprehensive and in-depth perspective of some aspect of the state of the art in planning or scheduling research and applications. If you have any questions about the suitability of a particular tutorial topic please do not hesitate to contact the tutorial chairs.
Proposals should be submitted to the tutorial chairs by email as ASCII text, and should include a description of the goals of the tutorial and its intended audience, a detailed outline of its contents, and a brief resume of the presenter(s) including information on expertise and prior presentations. Additionally, a summary of the tutorial is needed for advertising purposes (about 100 words).
