The Sixth Annual Symposium on Combinatorial was held at the Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort in Leavenworth, Washington, USA, from July 11–13, 2013. The symposium cochairs were Malte Helmert and Gabriele Röger. The proceedings were published by AAAI Press.
Heuristic search and other forms of combinatorial search are currently very active areas of research in artificial intelligence, planning, robotics, constraint programming, operations research, bioinformatics, and other areas of computer science. SoCS is meant to bring researchers from these areas together to exchange their ideas and cross-fertilize the field. To bring in new ideas, every year SoCS features a special scope on a related research area. This year, SoCS specifically invited submissions from researchers in the algorithm engineering community and related areas that work on graph search problems and other combinatorial search problems. This special scope on graph search engineering has been a clear success, attracting a considerable number of strong submissions outside the traditional AI search communities.
The 2013 proceedings contains 23 full papers and 4 research abstracts of original work, and 6 summaries of previously published work.
