This year, we are delighted to bring you the ICAPS 2021 Competitions Track with challenging problems contributed by our industry and academic partners. Get involved this summer for lots of cash awards and bragging rights! 😎


The ICAPS 2021 program committee invites paper submissions related to automated planning and scheduling. Relevant contributions include, but are not limited to:

  • Theoretical and empirical studies of planning and scheduling problems and algorithms;
  • Novel techniques and approaches that extend the scope and scale of problems that can be solved;
  • Analytic and implemented tools supporting automated planning and scheduling; and
  • Studies of applying automated planning and scheduling technologies to significant problems with deep technical insight.

After a thorough deliberation within the organizing committee, ICAPS 2021 is slated to be a fully virtual event from Aug 2 - 13. The decision was based on the following factors:

  • The prolonged and uncertain COVID situation is likely to prevent travelling to a physical conference in 2021.
  • The two-week format from ICAPS 2020 was preferred by regular ICAPS attendees, as evidenced in the responses to our pre-conference survey.
  • For students and researchers at universities, it will be easier to attend a two-week long virtual event during the summer break, which starts in June for most countries and from July in China.
  • Aug 2-13 provides the least conflicts with other premier AI conferences that share audience with ICAPS (e.g. IJCAI, ICML, UAI).
