First impressions about ICAPS – or “How much I do not know”

ICAPS 2012 is being held nearby São Paulo. The Planning and Scheduling Summer School (well, it is winter here in the Southern hemisphere right now) was really interesting, but I might say that there is much that I need to learn about planning. Up to now, I was just an operations research practitioner with a lot of interest in scheduling problems. That changed somewhat with Roman Barták’s class about solving planning problems with CP (which is a technique I enjoy a lot). Besides, planning represents a quite different way of observing the reality and solve its problems. I will try to play a little with its methods someday.

To conclude with these first impressions, the Doctoral Consortium held this morning was a valuable source of advice from young post-docs and professors. I wish I heard some of those when I was still an undergrad student. Nevertheless, many of them are still valid to plan my career.
