As an effective method for solving complex optimization problems, heuristic search has been widely used in industry, including logistics, digital maps, cloud computing, as well as manufacturing, among others. Work on heuristic search has a long tradition in AI, and there has been much progress over the last few decades. Advanced techniques in heuristic search are highly relevant for a range of real-world applications. On the other hand, real-world industrial applications give rise to interesting data sets and problems in this areas, and can also reveal bottlenecks and limitations of existing methods. The goal of this workshop is to bring together experts on heuristic search from academia and industry, and to promote real-world applications of heuristic search.
News update: According to the updating news of IJCAI 2020website, as with IJCAI 2020 conference, we are making backup plans for either a delayed workshop or a virtual (online) workshop.
News update: IJCAI-PRICAI has been postponed. The most likely scenario for this event would be in Kyoto from January 5-10, 2021. We would aim to provide options for remote participation, e.g., allowing authors to present remotely and more opportunities for remote attendees.Call For Papers
