Extended submission deadline: Special Issue on Evolutionary Computation in Scheduling at IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation

[Due to a number of requests, the submission deadline of the Special
Issue on Evolutionary Computation in Scheduling at IEEE TEVC has been
extended to /*29th June 2011*/]

Call for Papers

/*IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation*/

Special issue on
/*Evolutionary Computation in Scheduling*/

Extended submission deadline: /*29th June 2011*/


/*Aims and Topics*/

 This special issue aims to bring together the latest research advances
 in investigating and understanding algorithms in evolutionary
 computation for solving a wide range of scheduling problems. We invite
 papers representing high quality research which reflects the recent
 advances of evolutionary computation in scheduling and demonstrates
 state-of-the-art theory and practice in this area.

 Please note that work on simple applications of evolutionary algorithms,
 without fundamental investigations on the theory of evolutionary
 computation in scheduling, will not be considered for this special
 issue. We will also not accept papers that use computational
 intelligence methods lacking any evolutionary computation component.

 Authors are encouraged to submit their original work on the following
 (but not limited to) topics:

 - Evolutionary computation in:
  * Production scheduling
  * Personnel scheduling
  * Sports scheduling
  * Educational timetabling
  * Project scheduling
  * Transportation scheduling
  * Dynamic scheduling and rescheduling
  * Other scheduling problems
 - Theoretical or empirical analysis of evolutionary algorithms in
 - Representation issues in evolutionary scheduling
 - Complexity issues of evolutionary algorithms in scheduling
 - Comparison and integration of other techniques with evolutionary
 approaches in scheduling. Integrations with cross-discipline techniques
 including exact methods, meta-heuristics, computational intelligence and
 decision support methodologies, etc, are strongly encouraged.
 - Multi-objective evolutionary algorithms in scheduling
 - Adaptive evolutionary algorithms in scheduling
 - Cooperative search of evolutionary algorithms in scheduling
 - Parallel distributed processing / frameworks in scheduling
