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 for details of the conference.

How can I contribute?

Papers should be submitted using the JORS submission system.

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.
