ICAPS 2021
Journal Presentation Track
Call for Papers

Deadline: April 18


The program committee of the 31st International Conference on Automated
Planning and Scheduling (ICAPS) invites submissions of published journal
papers for the Journal Presentations Track, initiated in 2014.

The track is designed to provide a forum to discuss important results
related to automated planning and scheduling that appeared recently
(from January 2020 onwards) in selective journals, but have not been
previously presented either at ICAPS or at any other major AI conference
(such as IJCAI, AAAI, ECAI).

The goal of this track is twofold:

To provide authors an opportunity to present at the conference important
results published in journals that might otherwise not be submitted to
the conference due to their length and complexity. Papers that differ
from traditional ICAPS format and topics are welcome.

To broaden the program with lines of work at the intersection between
planning/scheduling and related fields such as for example constraint
programming, operations research, control, knowledge representation and
reasoning, machine learning, multi-agent systems, robotics,
transportation, computer games, and cognitive science. Papers that use
planning and scheduling in some innovative way (even if they do not
advance the planning technology itself) are welcome.

Paper Presentation

All accepted journal presentations will be presented orally during the
conference – at least one author is expected to register to ICAPS 2021
and to present the paper online. Complete citations, abstracts and URLs
of the original journal papers (if available from the publisher) will be
published on the ICAPS 2021 web site as a permanent reference.

Submission Requirements

Journal track submissions must meet the following criteria:

Candidate papers must be published in a journal such as (but not limited
to) AIJ, JAIR, EJOR, AURO, JAAMAS, KER and other leading journals
relevant to each research area from January 2020 until the submission
deadline. Papers that are in press may be submitted as long as the final
camera-ready version is available. Extensions of papers that have been
previously presented at ICAPS or another major AI conference (such as
IJCAI, AAAI, ECAI) may be submitted to this track. However, submissions
will be reviewed upon the strength of the new content.

Submission Process

All submissions will be done via EasyChair using The submission
will be in the following format (please include all elements other than
the original paper as a zip archive in the supplementary material):

- Title of the original journal paper (to be published on the Web);
- Complete reference of the original paper (to be published on the Web);
- URL where the paper can be downloaded from the publisher if available,
or alternatively a preprint (to be published on the Web);
- Abstract of the paper (to be published on the Web);
- An accompanying cover letter containing a brief summary of the key
results and contributions. It is crucial to include information about
importance of the paper and its contributions for the ICAPS community;
- A copy of the paper with its final camera-ready contents.

Submissions will go through an expedited selection process led by the
track chairs. Selection criteria include significance of the results
together with the relevance to the planning and scheduling community.
