The Twelfth International Symposium on Combinatorial Search (SoCS 2019), was held at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Napa Valley in Napa, California, USA, from July 16-17, 2019. The symposium cochairs were Pavel Surynek and, William Yeoh. 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 bioin- formatics. The symposium also welcomes submissions presenting real-world applications of heuristic search.
The SoCS 2019 proceedings includes rigorously peer-reviewed long papers and short papers, a position paper and extended abstracts that report preliminary results and ongoing work. Out of the 46 technical and position paper submissions, 20 submissions (15 long and 5 short papers) were accepted in their submitted categories and 9 submissions were accepted as extended abstracts by the program committee. Out of the 19 extended abstract submissions, 18 were accepted by the program committee.
