Call For Papers

Scheduling, planning and timetabling problems are amongst the most successful applications of evolutionary techniques to date. A range of representations and operators may be applied to a wide spectrum of problems in this area. As this is a mature area, papers building on previous work and case studies on the acceptance and implementation of evolutionary scheduling, planning and timetabling systems in the real-world are welcome. EvoSTIM2012 represents an opportunity for evolutionary computing researchers in the inter-related areas of planning, scheduling and timetabling to come together, present their latest research and discuss current developments and applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• case studies of applications of evolutionary techniques to real-life problems in scheduling, timetabling, and planning
• theoretical developments, including benchmarking and other comparative studies
• hybrid methods and novel heuristics
• methods for fast and minimally disruptive rescheduling
• dynamic scheduling, planning and timetabling
• distributed scheduling, planning and timetabling
• sequencing problems
• scheduling and planning in industrial environments including production planning, transportation and distribution
• educational course and exam timetabling
• employee and workforce scheduling
• organisation and resource scheduling
• generation of plans and construction of planners
• plan merging and decomposition of planning problems
• handling multiple goals in scheduling and planning
• planning under resource constraints

Submission deadline: 30th November 2011
Notification of acceptance: 14th January 2012
Camera-ready paper 5th February 2012
