How can plan representation contribute to today's problems? How they have been used? Have they been successful? What are the deciding factors which make the use of plan representation a useful input for an application/research problem? We welcome both positive as well as "negative" research results - negative research results as when plan representation does not work. 2. Has the internet technology together with the abundance means of human communication, i.e. via voice, data, images or a combination of them, provides new opportunities and challenges for plan representation? Can plan representation provides (some) solutions to them?
