and publication times will be maintained.


The Journal of Scheduling will provide a recognised global forum for the
publication of all forms of sheduling-oriented research. Publishing from
June 1998, JOS will cover advances in scheduling research, such as the
latest techniques, applications, theoretical issues and novel approaches to
problems. The journal will be directly relevant to the areas of Computer
Science, Discrete Mathematics, Operational Research, Engineering,
Management, Artificial Intelligence, Construction, Distribution,
Manufacturing, Transport, Aerospace and Retail and Service Industries. These
disciplines face complex scheduling needs and all stand to gain from
advances in scheduling technology and understanding.


* Incorporates theoretical, experimental and applied research
* Covers recent computational and algorithmic advances in the field
* Addresses the industrial need for scheduling
* Includes surveys of techniques appropriate to particular subsets of
problems, for example:

        Real-time scheduling
        Sports scheduling
        Shop-floor scheduling
        Transport scheduling
        Vehicle routing
        Employee timetabling
        Machine scheduling
        Educational timetabling

Also covers applications relevant to areas such as:

        Constraint logic programming
        Artificial Intelligence
        Heuristic search
        Rule-based expert systems
        Automated Reasoning
        Evolutionary algorithms
        Mathematical programming
