Call for Papers

ICAPS'08 Multiagent Planning Workshop

CfP as plain text

Planning for multiagent systems is a broad field with many applications, but its subfields remain rather dispersed. This workshop aims to bring together researchers working on multiagent plan coordination, multiagent planning architectures, decision-theoretic and game-theoretic approaches, distributed plan management, and related techniques. Despite the diversity, several common issues exist like scalability, representing uncertainty, and dealing with conflicting preferences or goals.

In particular, the focus of workshop will be modeling for multiagent planning, as a common theme that will benefit from interaction among the different sub-communities. Hence, we solicit papers on the following topics:

We encourage authors to address directly at least one of these issues in their submissions. Papers will be selected for presentation by a review process conducted by the Program Committee members. Submissions should be in the ICAPS'08 format with a maximum of 8 pages and are to be uploaded in PDF format at easychair by June 25. Short position papers (2 page maximum) are also welcome. Authors of position papers may be asked to participate in a panel discussion or give a short presentation, depending on the number of position papers and their topics. We will consider papers recently published at conferences if they are clearly marked as such.
