ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems and Technology
(ACM TIST http://tist.acm.org)
Call for Papers: Special Issue on Applications of Automated Planning
Editor: Yixin Chen
Deadlines: March 30, 2010.
Expected publication date: July/Aug, 2010.
Recent years have witnessed significant advancement of the capability of automated
planning technology, which greatly enhances the feasibility of deploying planning
systems in real-world industrial and commercial applications. Over the past few years,
automated planning technology has greatly advanced and been applied to many novel
application domains such as aerospace engineering, flight control, robotics, business
management, web services, manufacturing design, sensor networks, computational
biology, natural language generation, and medical treatment planning, to name a few.
This ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems and Technology (ACM TIST) special
issue seeks articles related to all aspects of planning applications. We solicit high-quality
papers on challenging research issues, theory, algorithms, techniques, systems, and
methodologies for deploying and evaluating planning technology in real-world
applications. We invite submissions on topics including, but not limited to:

Experiences with novel applications

Algorithms and heuristics

Techniques to enhance scalability

Engineering and practical issues in deployment

Methodologies for evaluation and validation

Execution and handling of environment/resource dynamics

User interface, visualization, and explanation

Planning and re-planning under uncertainty

Integration of domain knowledge into planning systems

Integration of multiple sources of information and reasoning methods

Use of machine learning and data mining to aid planning
Submission Guidelines
Submissions due for review: March 30, 2010
Submissions should be no more than 10,000 words or 20 ACM Journal pages (counting a
standard figure or table as 200 words) and should follow the magazine’s style and
presentation guidelines (see http://tist.acm.org/authors.html). To submit a manuscript,
access the ACM Manuscript Central System, at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tist with
