PuK 2021

Berlin/Online, September 2021


The PuK workshop is the regular meeting of the special interest group on planning, scheduling, design and configuration within the AI section of the Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI). With the actual hype in Artificial Intelligence applications the domains of planning, scheduling and design also increase in interest.

As in previous years the PuK workshop brings together researchers and practitioners of the areas of planning, scheduling, design and configuration. It provides a forum for the exchange of ideas, evaluations and experiences especially in the use of AI techniques within these application and research areas.

The general topics of interest of the PuK community include but are not limited to:

-     Practical applications of configuration, planning or scheduling systems

-     Architectures for planning, scheduling or configuration systems

-     Knowledge representation and problem solving techniques, e.g.
domain-specific techniques; heuristic techniques; distributed problem solving; constraint-based techniques; iterative improvement; swarm intelligence; reactive techniques and user-interaction. 

-     Learning in the context of planning, scheduling and design. 


The practical use of the tools and techniques developed in the area of planning, scheduling and configuration is of special interest to the audience. Thus complete systems and application areas in which the approaches are used shall be highlighted.  This focus shall also help to attract the workshop to practitioners in the field, who are invited to present practical problems and to discuss their experiences, concepts, and ideas. It is also intended to stimulate a mutual exchange with the researchers on our common field's future di ections. 

Besides this, all submissions regarding the general topics mentioned above are welcome.

Please send a short recorded presentation, an Abstract, extended Abstract or full paper directly to the workshop organizers.
