Planning and Scheduling are central aspects of Artificial Intelligence, providing intelligent agents with the ability to reason about how and when to act. The methods developed over the past two decades of research in Planning and Scheduling are relevant for a wide range of applications, from industrial automation to robot control. The 9th International Summer School on Planning and Scheduling, to be held in conjunction with the 2016 ICAPS conference in London, UK, proposes an intense four day educational program for graduate students and young researchers. The program focuses on a selection of topics that are relevant for both theory and practice. Particular emphasis is placed in this edition on Planning and Scheduling for Robotics - a field where AI-driven reasoning in general, and Planning and Scheduling in particular, are increasingly instrumental.
Topics, Program and Lecturers
The 2016 Summer School on Automated Planning and Scheduling will give the students present in London a great opportunity to learn about the foundations and recent developments in a research area that is central to AI. It will include lectures on classical planning, constraint-based planning and scheduling, planning under uncertainty, computational complexity of planning, and multi-agent planning, and planning/scheduling for robotics.
The special aim of this edition is to bring together the two somewhat separated fields of AI and Robotics. Two lectures will focus on crucial points of intersection between these fields. Lectures will be given by top subject experts from the Planning, Scheduling, and Robotics research communities.
