KI 2013 Workshop

27. Workshop Planen/ Scheduling und Konfigurieren / Entwerfen

16. September 2013

 Deadline: 17.6.2013


The PuK workshop is the regular meeting of the special interest group on planning, scheduling, design and configuration within the AI section of the GI. It has an amazing long tradition and goes into its 27th edition.


As in previous years the PuK workshop brings together researchers and practitioners of the areas of planning, scheduling, design and configuration. It provides a forum for the exchange of ideas, evaluations and experiences especially in the use of AI techniques within these application and research areas.


Topics of Interest

The general topics of interest of the PuK community include but are not limited to:

    * Practical applications of configuration, planning or scheduling systems

    * Architectures for planning, scheduling or configuration systems

    * Knowledge representation and problem solving techniques, e.g.,

      - domain specific techniques:

      - heuristic techniques

      - distributed problem solving

      - constraint-based techniques

      - iterative improvement

      - integrating reaction and

      - user-interaction.

    * Learning in the context of planning, scheduling and design.


Special Focus this Year: System View

As we have done in earlier workshops, we intend to focus on a specific area of interest: This time it is the systemic view on the use of the tools and techniques developed in the area of planning, scheduling and configuration. The complete systems and application areas in which the approaches are used shall be in the focus of the interest. This focus shall also help to attract the workshop to practitioners in the field, who are invited to present practical problems and to discuss their experiences, concepts, and ideas. It is also intended to stimulate a mutual exchange with the researchers on our common field's future directions. Thus, a second main goal of this part of the workshop is the support of research planning. Besides this, further submissions from the general topics mentioned above are welcome.



Submission and Contribution Format

The workshop will be held in English. Papers are subject to regular peer review and subsequent publication within the workshop proceedings (4-8 pages).

Submission is by eMail to one of the organizers.
