SoCS 2018: The 11th Annual Symposium

on Combinatorial Search

July 14-15, 2018

Heuristic search and other forms of combinatorial search are 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.
