 3:45pm - 4:15pm   Summary and Conclusion (Austin)

Possible Open Forum Discussion Topics: 

1. 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?
