MISTA 2015: Call for Participation
Multidisciplinary International Scheduling Conference: Theory & Applications

25-28 August 2015,
Prague, Czech Republic

MISTA 2015 is the seventh in the conference series. Previous conferences
were run in Ghent (2013), Arizona (2011), Dublin (2009), Paris (2007), New
York (2005) and Nottingham (2003). This year the conference takes place in

The conference serves as a forum for an international community of
researchers, practitioners and vendors on all aspects of multi-disciplinary
scheduling. The conference covers, besides other, the following disciplines:
artificial intelligence, computer science, engineering, management,
manufacturing, mathematics and operational research. The aim is to bring
together scheduling researchers and practitioners from all the disciplines
that engage with scheduling research.


This year we received a record breaking number of submissions and we are
very grateful for that. The conference programme is not available yet,
nevertheless we can announce the plenary speakers

- Martin Skutella, Technische Universität Berlin (LP-based algorithms for
scheduling unrelated parallel machines)

- Hana Rudova, Masaryk University (University course timetabling: From
theory to practice)

- Johann Hurink, University of Twente (Scheduling for Decentralized Energy


A part of the conference is a reception and a banquet
( The reception
will take place on boat Šumava. The cruise on river Vltava includes
commented sightseeing and live music. The conference banquet will be in the
Municipal House which is one of the most remarkable constructions of Prague
Art Nouveau.

Just as during previous years, the last day of the conference is the social
day. This year we will visit glassworks RÜCKL CRYSTAL a.s. where you can see
all stages of how the Czech handmade glass is produced. In the afternoon, we
will move to Karlštejn, a High Gothic castle founded in 1348, which has a
unique position among Czech castles. It was built by Czech King and Roman
Emperor Charles IV as a place for safekeeping of the royal treasures.
