ICAPS 2017, the 27th International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling, will take place in Pittsburgh, at Carnegie Mellon University in June 2017.

ICAPS 2017 is part of the ICAPS conference series, the premier forum for exchanging news and research results on theory and applications of intelligent and automated planning and scheduling technology. The ICAPS 2017 program committee invites paper submissions related to automated planning and scheduling. Relevant contributions include, but are not limited to:

  • Theoretical and empirical studies of planning and scheduling problems and algorithms;
  • Novel techniques and approaches that extend the scope and scale of problems that can be solved;
  • Analytic and implemented tools supporting automated planning and scheduling; and
  • Studies of applying automated planning and scheduling technologies to significant problems with deep technical insight.

ICAPS 2017 will be co-located with the 10th International Workshop on Planning and Scheduling for Space (IWPSS 2017) and with the International Symposium on Combinatorial Search (SoCS 2017).
