Sixth Workshop on:
Models and Algorithms for Planning and Scheduling Problems
Aussois 30.III-4.IV.2003


The workshop MAPSP takes place every two years in a different country (Lago di Como, Italy in 1993; Wernigerode, Germany in 1995; Cambridge, England in 1997; Renesse, Holland in 1999; Aussois, France in 2001). It aims at providing a forum for scientific exchanges and cooperation in the field of planning, scheduling and related areas.

The workshop will be open for up to 150 participants. Topics will include both theoretical results - such as polynomial algorithms,complexity results, approximation schemes, branch and bound methods, heuristics - and practical ones. Industrial applications are also welcome.
Conference fee is 150 Euros (120 Euros for students).
A special issue of the Journal of Scheduling is planned for carefully refereed papers submitted by conference participants.

Invited speakers

There will be a single stream of presentations (20 and 5 minutes) and some breaks to encourage discussions and a collaboration. Six speakers are invited to give one-hour plenary talks:
