Workshop on Heuristic Search for Domain-Independent Planning (HSDIP)

Along the years, I (with others) have organized some workshops in the context of the International Conference of Planning and Scheduling. This is one of the Workshops with a longer tradition within ICAPS conference (it started on 2007), and it has become an important piece for the ICAPS community.

It is focus on understanding the underlying principles of current heuristics and search methods, their limitations, ways for overcoming those limitations, as well as the synergy between heuristics and search, in the context of Domain-Independent Planning. In this forum we aim to discuss about the progress of the research, not only by presenting works, but also by open pannels and discussions.

You can find below more information about the editions in which I was part of the organization team:

Other talks

I researched in deep about Symbolic Search, specially in the context of Optimal Planning.

Related to this thema, I gave a general, high-level talk about it, (Large-Scale Symbolic Search) at the International Workshop of Pattern Databases and Large-Scale Search in 2018 at the Freie Universität from Berlin.

The slides can be found here
