The DBAI group cordially invites you to the following seminar talk:
University of Udine
Educational Timetabling: Problems, Benchmarks, Algorithms, Software
Tools, and Practical Issues
Time: Thursday, March 28, 18:15.
Place: Seminarroom Goedel (Favoritenstrasse 9-11, ground floor)
University timetabling problems consist in scheduling a sequence of
events (lectures, seminars, or exams) between teachers and students in a
prefixed period of time, satisfying a set of constraints of various
types. In this talk, we critically review different formulations, public
benchmarks, search methods, and software tool available for the solution
and the management of timetabling problems. We will also discuss,
practical issues involved in the actual solution of timetabling problems
in an Italian University.
Andrea Schaerf received his master degree cum laudein Electrical
Engineering in 1990 and his PhD in Computer Science in 1994 from
University of Rome "La Sapienza". During his studies, he spent one year
at Stanford University (California, U.S.A.) under the supervision of Y.
Shoham. After graduating, he was supported for one year by a scholarship
from CNR, and successively he spent one year at CWI in Amsterdam under
the supervision of K. Apt, supported by a fellowship by ERCIM. From 1996
to 1998 he has been Assistant Professor at University of Rome "La
Sapienza". From 1998 to 2005 he has been Associate Professor at
University of Udine, where, starting November 2005, he is Full
Professor. His main research interest is in algorithms, specification
languages, and software tools for scheduling and timetabling problems.
