Integrated Planning Applications
Papers from the AAAI Spring Symposium
The planning field has finally begun to take on real, or at least realistic, applications. Traditionally, a key application for planning systems has been robotics. Recently, new areas for application have emerged, including planning for data analysis tasks, virtual reality environments or other simulated environments, medical applications, and factory automation. Invariably, once a planning application becomes realistic, issues arise regarding the integration of the planning system with its environment, such as what is difficult or easy about particular applications, what similar applications have in common, and how technologies can be integrated.
The goal of this symposium is to explore the boundary between planning systems and their environments. The symposium welcomes interested participants who have worked on planning applications or have integrated planning into other systems. We plan to make the symposium interactive and participatory. Therefore, we encourage potential participants to send electronic mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, letting us know that you plan to attend the symposium and summarizing your research interests and relevant background.
