Multi-Disciplinary Scheduling

We are inviting papers, for a special issue of the Journal of the Operational Research Society (JORS) that focusses on Multi-Disciplinary Scheduling. The topic of this special issue will cover all aspects of scheduling and could cover, but not be limited to, the following disciplines:

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Manufacturing
  • Computer Science
  • Mathematics
  • Engineering
  • Operational Research
  • Management

The scope of this special issue includes (but is not limited to):

  • Agent Based Scheduling
  • Meta-heuristic Search
  • Algorithmics
  • Multi-processor Scheduling
  • Applications
  • Process Scheduling
  • Automated Reasoning
  • Production Scheduling
  • Batch Scheduling
  • Real World Scheduling
  • Commercial Packages
  • Real-Time Scheduling
  • Complexity of Scheduling Problems
  • Rostering
  • Constraint Logic Programming
  • Rule-Based Expert Systems
  • Delivery Scheduling
  • Shop-Floor Scheduling
  • Evolutionary Algorithms
  • Sports Scheduling
  • Heuristic Search
  • Theoretical Scheduling
  • Knowledge-Based Systems
  • Timetabling
  • Large Scale Scheduling
  • Transport Scheduling
  • Local Search
  • Vehicle Routing
  • Machine Scheduling

This is an open call but we would particularly welcome extended papers of those presented at the 8th MISTA (Multidisciplinary International Scheduling Conference: Theory and Applications) conference that will place 5-8 Dec 2017 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The conference serves as a forum for an international community of researchers, practitioners and vendors on all aspects of multi-disciplinary scheduling. These papers must make an additional contribution, they must cite the conference paper (or abstract) and explicitly state what the additional contribution is See http://www.schedulingconference.org/ for details of the conference.

How can I contribute?

Papers should be submitted using the JORS submission system.

https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/ors-jors

You should submit a covering letter stating the paper is being submitted to the special issue on Multi-Disciplinary Scheduling so that the paper can be routed correctly.
