In the lecture on AI Planning many basic techniques and algorithms were discussed, but we lacked the time to study a larger number of advanced techniques. We want to make up for this in the present seminar. Previous knowledge in AI Planning is advantageous, but not a formal prerequisite for the participation in this seminar.

The material will be presented and discussed by the participants in the form of oral presentations.

Prerequisites and ECTS Credits

To obtain ECTS credits, the participants have to

  • give an oral presentation of about 15 minutes,
  • hand in a written paper of about 8 to 10 pages about their topic,
  • review two works of their fellow students,
  • be present throughout the whole seminar.
Papers, reviews, presentations etc. can be either in German or in English. For oral contributions, English is preferred.

Please note that you have to register for this course via HISInOne in order to receive ECTS credits.

The paper should be prepared using LaTeX and be about 8 to 10 pages long. You will find commented examples that you may use as a guideline for structuring your paper in our seminar guide. There, you will also find further hints on how to prepare and give a seminar talk.
