AI techniques such as constraint satisfaction or integrate with planning are
also eligible. Topics of the special track include all aspects of planning and
scheduling from theoretical studies to practical applications.


Topics include (but are not limited to):

o	Methodologies and tools for specification, design, implementation, and
        validation of planning and scheduling systems
o	Constrained-based planning and scheduling

o	Knowledge engineering techniques for planning and scheduling
o	Planning with resources and time constraints
o	Hierarchical task network planning
o	Dynamic scheduling
o	Mixed-initiative planning and scheduling
o	Plan and schedule execution, monitoring and repair
