A time-predefined local search approach to exam timetabling problems

  title={A time-predefined local search approach to exam timetabling problems},
  author={Edmund B. Burke and Yuri Bykov and James P. Newall and S. Petrovic},
In recent years the computational power of computers has increased dramatically. This in turn has allowed search algorithms to execute more iterations in a given amount of real time. Does this necessarily always lead to an improvement in the quality of final solutions? This paper is devoted to the investigation of that question. We present two variants of local search algorithms where the search time can be set as an input parameter. These two approaches are: a time-predefined variant of… CONTINUE READING
