SoCS 2019 Special Activity

Heuristic search and other forms of combinatorial search optimization are a very active areas of research in Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Planning and other areas of Computer Science. The International Symposium on Combinatorial Search (SoCS) is meant to bring researchers in such areas together to exchange their ideas and cross-fertilize the field.

SoCS is targeting researchers and submissions in all fields that use combinatorial search, including artificial intelligence, planning, robotics, constraint programming, meta-reasoning, operations research, navigation, and bioinformatics. We especially invite submissions presenting real-world applications of heuristic search.

Dates: July 16-17, 2019 (immediately after ICAPS 2019).

Venue: Napa, California, USA (near the ICAPS 2019 venue).

SoCS this year should be very attractive for student participants. We expect to make SoCS easily accessible for students by having a travel support. A student mentoring scheme in which senior participants will be available for advising students with their research and career prospects is also planned.
