Scheduling and Planning Applications woRKshop

A series of workshops co-located with ICAPS Conferences

The International Scheduling and Planning Applications woRKshop (SPARK) aims to provide a stable forum on relevant topics connected to application-focused research and the deployment of P&S systems. Application domains that entail planning and scheduling (P&S) problems present a set of interesting modeling, technological and institutional challenges to the AI planning and scheduling community that are becoming more and more frequently affordable for AI. SPARK aims at fostering the practical application of advances made in the AI P&S community. The websites of the previous editions of the workshop series are available at
