Fourth Workshop on Models and Algorithms for Planning and Scheduling Problems

Call for participation

Following three successful workshops at Lake Como, Italy, in 1993, in Wernigerode, Germany, in 1995, and in Cambridge, England, in 1997, the Fourth Workshop on Models and Algorithms for Planning and Scheduling Problems is to be held in Renesse, The Netherlands, June 14-18, 1999. The conference hotel `De Zeeuwsche Stromen' is located in the dunes of Renesse, a beach resort in the province of Zeeland.

The workshop aims to provide a forum for scientific exchange and cooperation in the field of planning, scheduling, and related areas. To maintain the informality of the previous workshops and to encourage discussion and cooperation, there will be a limit of 100 participants and a single stream of presentations.

Contributions on many aspects of scheduling and related fields have been submitted. Out of more than 100 submissions 38 20-minute contributions and 25 so-called spotlight presentations have been selected. Abstracts of accepted contributions can be accessed following this link. A (tentative) schedule is found in the MAPSP'99 program. For REGISTRATION consult the updated registration form.

Conference Sponsors The MAPSP conference is being supported by sponsors both from the academic world as well as from industrial side. The list of sponsors and links to their sites can be found in Sponsor information.
