[DMANET] CFP: CISched'2011 - 2011 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Scheduling

************* CISched'2011 Call for Papers *************
2011 IEEE Symposium on "Computation Intelligence in Scheduling"
April 11 - 15, 2011 Paris, France

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
