In this paper, we are introducing a new method of granular exam-to-slot allocation based on the pre-processing of the basic student-exam information into a more abstract (granulated) entity of conflict chains. Since the conflict chains are designed to capture the mutual dependencies between exams, they enable us to reason about the exam-to-slot allocation(More)
In this paper we introduce a new optimization method for the examinations scheduling problem. Rather than attempting direct optimization of assignments of exams to specific time-slots, we perform permutations of slots and reassignments of exams upon the feasible (but not optimal) schedules obtained by the standard graph colouring method with Largest Degree(More)
Simulation modelling of the initial assignments of exams to time-slots provides an alternative approach to the establishment of a set of feasible solutions that are subsequently optimized. In this research, we analyze two backtracking strategies for reassigning exams after the initial allocation of exams to time-slots. We propose two approaches for(More)
Conference scheduling can be quite a simple and straightforward problem if the number of papers to be scheduled is small. However, the problem can be very challenging and complex if the number of papers is large and various additional constraints need to be satisfied. Conference scheduling with regard to satisfying participants’ preferences can be(More)
