The workshop is open to all the AI and robotics community. In order to guarantee a high level of interactivity, however, the number or participants is limited to 40. People who are interested in participating should contact the workshop organizers. All workshop attendees must also register for the main IJCAI conference.


The proceedings will be distributed at the workshop. They will also be availabe on-line.
