The Fourteenth Annual Symposium on Combinatorial was a virtual conference originally scheduled to be held at Jinan University, Guangzhou, China, from July 26–30, 2021. The symposium cochairs were Hang Ma and Ivan Serina. The proceedings were published by AAAI Press.
Heuristic search and other forms of combinatorial search optimization are very active areas of research in artificial intelligence, robotics, planning, and other areas of computer science. The International Symposium on Combinatorial Search (SoCS) is meant to bring researchers in such areas together to exchange ideas and crossfertilize the field. SoCS is a forum for researchers and submissions in all fields that use combinatorial search, including artificial intelligence, planning, robotics, constraint programming, metareasoning, operations research, navigation, and bioinformatics. The symposium also welcomed submissions presenting real-world applications of heuristic search.
