Hierarchical planning has attracted renewed interest in the last couple of years. As a consequence, the time was right to establish a workshop devoted entirely to hierarchical planning – an insight shared by many supporters. In this paper we report on the first ICAPS workshop on Hierarchical Planning held in Delft, The Netherlands, in 2018 as well as on the second workshop held in Berkeley, CA, USA, in 2019.
