This year’s ICAPS in London is approaching quickly, and I’m already looking forward to it. As always, there will be many exciting talks, invited presentations, etc. Besides, this year I have the honor to give a tutorial on planning with state-dependent action costs together with Florian Geißer, mostly based on our IJCAI 2015 and ICAPS 2016 […]

More technical and detailed descriptions of how the planner works algorithmically can be found in a […]
