************* CISched'2011 Call for Papers ************* 2011 IEEE Symposium on "Computation Intelligence in Scheduling" April 11 - 15, 2011 Paris, France http://www.ieee-ssci.org/2011/cisched-2011 The 2011 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Scheduling (CI-Sched 2011) invites research on all aspects of computational intelligence applied to scheduling problems. Due to their huge search spaces that have to be explored, scheduling problems cannot usually be solved by exact approaches. Therefore, significant research attention has been attracted on exploring techniques in Computational Intelligence (including evolutionary computation, neural networks, swarm intelligence, fuzzy logic, and their hybridizations, etc.). This symposium aims to explore recent advances in this area. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following: * Computational Intelligence in: o Production Scheduling o Personnel Scheduling o Sports Scheduling o Educational Timetabling o Commercial Scheduling packages o Transport Scheduling o Other scheduling problems * Complexity Issues in scheduling * Comparison of Techniques (e.g. compare Neural Networks with Fuzzy Logic; comparison of a meta-heuristic approach with a CI approach) * Interactive Scheduling using Computational Intelligence * Experiences of CI within Scheduling * Case Studies * Theoretical or empirical analysis of evolutionary algorithms and representations for scheduling /*Symposium Co-Chairs*/ Rong Qu, University of Nottingham, UK Ender Ozcan, University of Nottingham, UK Michel Gendreau, cole Polytechnique de Montral, Canada /*Important Dates*/ Extended Paper Submission Due: November 16, 2010 You may leave the list at any time by sending the command SIGNOFF allstat to [log in to unmask], leaving the subject line blank.
