Call for Papers

Special Issue of Journal of Scheduling
Artificial Intelligence Planning and Scheduling
Guest Editors: Rong Qu, Derek Long, Maria Fox

Deadline of submission extended to the 15th May, 2007.
The Journal of Scheduling invites researchers in planning and scheduling to submit papers to the Special Issue on "Artificial Intelligence Planning and Scheduling". We especially aim to bring together research at the interface between the AI planning and OR scheduling.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
  • Novel planning and scheduling algorithms
  • Constraint-based planning/scheduling and control techniques
  • Empirical studies of planning/scheduling systems
  • Integration of planning and scheduling in autonomous systems
  • Reasoning about knowledge, action, and time for planning and scheduling
  • Case-based planning/scheduling
  • Management of resources through integrated planning and scheduling
  • Iterative improvement techniques for scheduling and/or planning
  • Artificial intelligence and operations research applied to scheduling and/or planning
  • Planning/scheduling under uncertainty
  • Exploration of the interaction between planning and scheduling
    Papers should be submitted electronically via the Journal of Scheduling's online submission system at, following the journal's instructions to authors. Please indicate that your submission is to the Special Issue on "Artificial Intelligence Planning and Scheduling" (by selecting "AI Planning and Scheduling" as article type). Your paper will be automatically assigned a reference number i.e. JOSHxxx after your approve. All papers submitted to the special issue will be reviewed in accordance with the standard procedures of the Journal of Scheduling.
