The Journal of Scheduling provides a global forum for the publication
of all forms of sheduling-oriented research. JOS covers advances in
scheduling research, such as the latest techniques, applications,
theoretical issues and novel approaches to problems. The journal is
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
