Welcome to ICAPS'08
ICAPS is the premier forum for exchanging news and research results on theory and applications of intelligent planning and scheduling technology. The conference is part of the ICAPS conference series.
The conference program will consist of pre-conference workshops and tutorials on current research topics, invited talks by leading computer scientists working in the area, presentations of contributed technical papers, as well as system demonstrations. For graduate students the conference includes a doctoral consortium.
