2015 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Scheduling
(IEEE CISched'15)


The 2015 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Scheduling (IEEE CISched'15) 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

Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Computational Intelligence in:
    • Production Scheduling
    • Personnel Scheduling
    • Sports Scheduling
    • Educational Timetabling
    • Commercial Scheduling packages
    • Transport Scheduling
    • 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
