Abstract

The International Planning Competition (IPC) is a prominent event of the AI planning community that has been organised since 1998; it aims at fostering the development and comparison of planning approaches, assessing the state-of-the-art in planning, and identifying new challenging benchmarks. IPC has a strong impact also outside the planning community, by providing a large number of ready-to-use planning engines and testing pioneering applications of planning techniques.
This paper focuses on the deterministic part of IPC 2014, and describes format, participants, benchmarks as well as a thorough analysis of the results. Generally, results of the competition indicates some significant progress, but they also highlight issues and challenges that the planning community will have to face in the future.
