6th International Planning Competition - Deterministic part


In order to participate in the deterministic part of the competition, each team should send an email to any of the co-chairs of the organizing committee (Minh Do, Malte Helmert, Ioannis Refanidis), including the information specified below. As a default rule, we do not allow a team to enter more than two planners, or versions of the same planner. However, depending on the overall number of the registered teams and planners, if a convincing argument can be made that there are significant differences between the planners, more than two planners can be accepted.

(1) Name and email address of each member of the team:

(2) Name and email address of the contact person of the team:

(3) Name of the competing planner(s):

(4) For each planner, please specify

(4.1) Tracks of the competition into which the planner is entered

For a description of the tracks, including examples and a description of the precise objective function the planners are expected to optimize, please follow the corresponding links.

NOTE 1: Within each track, several versions of a domain might exist (e.g. metric-only, temporal-only etc), however one prize will be given for each track and planners not supporting all features have less chances to receive the prize.

NOTE 2: The participants are strongly encouraged to run their planners in every track that is supported by the planner.

If you have comments about tracks that are only partially supported by your planner (e.g., the planner does not support derived predicates or some ADL features), please indicate them here:


(4.2) The competition machine will run Linux. Please specify the programming language(s), compilers and other auxiliary software (e.g. CPLEX) required by the planner:


(4.3) Particular aspects of the planner that are important to running the experiments

Additional particular aspects about your planner you want to let us know about:


STATEMENT: We agree that the final version of the source code of our planner that will participate the competition, will be made publicly available through the official IPC-2008 web site.
