The ANML language. The Action Notation Modeling Language (ANML) provides a high-level, convenient, and succinct alternative to existing planning languages such as PDDL, the IxTeT language, and languages developed at NASA, such as the EUROPA modeling language (NDDL), and the ASPEN modeling language (AML). ANML is based on strong notions of action and state (like PDDL, IxTeT, and AML), uses a variable/value model (like IxTeT, NDDL and AML), supports rich temporal constraints (like IxTeT, NDDL and AML), and provides simple, convenient idioms for expressing the most common forms of action conditions, effects, and resource usage. The language supports both generative and HTN planning models in a uniform framework and has a clear, well-defined semantics. Despite the richness of the language, it is possible to translate it into PDDL, with some increase in the number and complexity of operators and conditions. In this paper, we describe the central and unique features of the ANML language and sketch key parts of the translation to PDDL.
