Abstract : This project was aimed at adapting relevant techniques developed in real time and distributed operating systems, and combining them with techniques from real time and distributed AI, to support plan generation in dynamic, multi-agent environments, including crisis action settings. We describe DIPART - The Distributed, Interactive Planner's Assistant for Real time Transportation planning - a prototype simulation system. We also describe advances made in the project in three areas: (i) planning technology, (ii) metalevel reasoning to control planning, and (iii) coordination of distributed planning.
