Session description:
For several decades, the scheduling problems have constituted a privileged topic. Motivated by their
industrial applications and scientific interest, several research teams studied these problems and proposed various models and resolution approaches. The aim of this special session is to present the recent advances in this field. The two major classes of approximate and exact methods are welcome.
Theoretical and practical works can both be submitted.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
– scheduling theory
– single and parallel machine problems
– shop scheduling
– applications of scheduling (logistics, transportation, production, computer science, computing…)
– Approximation algorithms and schemes applied to solve scheduling problems
– Metaheuristics for scheduling
– Exact/mathematical methods for scheduling
– Online and offline scheduling problems
– Stochastic and deterministic scheduling problems
– Multiobjective scheduling problems
– Robust algorithms for scheduling in uncertain systems
