Call for Papers

Authors are invited to submit presentations on the topics of interest in one of three categories:

1. Full Papers

Authors should submit papers describing significant, original and unpublished work. Full papers are expected to be approximately 10-20 pages in length but this guideline is not strict. These papers will be fully refereed by the programme committee and the accepted ones will appear in conference proceedings.

2. Abstracts

Authors can submit abstracts of up to 1000 words. Abstracts will be fully refereed. The accepted ones will appear in the conference proceedings. People who wish to give a talk (e.g. practitioners, researchers with preliminary or incomplete papers) but do not want to submit a full paper can submit under this category.

3. System Demonstrations

Authors can also submit an abstract, describing the major properties and contribution of implemented and/or commercial timetabling systems. Abstracts should not exceed 1000 words (3-4 pages). Authors of accepted submissions in this category would be expected to provide a demonstration of their software during the conference. Demonstration submissions will be evaluated on the basis of their innovation, relevance and scientific contribution. The abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings.

Submission Details and Deadline

For submission instructions, see the Submissions page. The submission deadline is found on the Dates page.

Post Conference Publication

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their original work as full papers for consideration to be published in a Special Issue of the Annals of Operations Research. See the call for papers.
