Service domains constitute an application field where automated planning can
significantly contribute towards achieving more customisable compositions, and
pose a number of interesting problems to the AI community. Following the
vision to use domain-independent planning for generating compositions based on
atomic service descriptions, I will show how a CSP-based planning framework,
equipped with a declarative extended goal language, can meet the requirements
posed by two different application areas: a smart home equipped with
intelligent devices exposed as services, and a domain consisting of Web
Services offering a number of different functionalities. The main
characteristics of the planner include accommodating for incomplete knowledge
through active sensing and re-planning, support for continuous context update,
and for variables ranging over large domains. Evaluation for a number of
different scenarios including real users and services is provided, which
indicate that the planner can satisfy a variety of different needs with
Eirini Kaldeli is a PhD student at the Distributed Systems group of the
University of Groningen, under the supervision of Prof. Marco Aiello. Her
research interests include AI planning, Web Services, Constraint Satisfaction,
and how the advances in each of these areas interact with each other. More
