Description
===========

Complex robot behavior requires not only paths to navigate or reach
objects, but also decisions about which objects to reach, in what
order, and what style of action to perform. Such decisions combine the
need for continuous, collision-free motion planning with the discrete
actions of task planning. Efficient algorithms exist to solve these
parts in isolation; however, integrating task and motion planning
presents algorithmic challenges in generality, scalability,
completeness. Task-Motion Planning (TMP) is an integrated approach to
this challenge which has developed in the traditional robotics
community. With this workshop, we hope to strengthen connections to
the AI and formal methods communities.

Challenges in TMP arise from the interaction of task and motion
layers. Task actions affect motion planning feasibility, and motion
plan feasibility dictates the ability to perform task actions. Current
work on task and motion planning has achieved good performance by
focusing on specific types of actions or solving expected-case
scenarios, and ongoing advances are improving completeness,
generality, and optimality.

Objectives
==========

The goal of this workshop is to highlight recent applications and
explore new methods for combining task and motion planning, looking
beyond the traditional robotics community find connections to work in
AI and cyber-physical systems. We hope to identify new abstractions
and algorithms for complex robot action. From this workshop, we expect
participating researchers to identify and address important
challenges, techniques, and benchmarks necessary for combining task
and motion planning.
