About this book

This book contains a selection of strictly refereed papers presented at the First International Conference on the Practice and Theory of Automated Timetabling, held in Edinburgh, UK, August/September 1995.
This is the first book entirely devoted to automated timetabling and meets the clear need for a wide-ranging survey of the state of the art in the area. The book contains four survey papers by leading experts together with 19 revised full papers presenting new results; the papers are organized in topical sections on reasoning about constraints, genetic algorithms, complexity issues, and tabu search and simulated annealing.
