    A feature issue of EJOR will be aimed at all aspects of timetabling and
    rostering research. Original, high quality papers are sought from across
    the range of theoretical and applied timetabling research issues.

    This feature issue is being organised in conjunction with the 4th EURO Working
    group on Automated TimeTabling (WATT) Workshop that was held at the
    18th European Operational Research Conference (EURO XVIII) in Rotterdam,

    workshops can be seen at http://www.asap.cs.nott.ac.uk/watt/

    Submission of papers to the issue is NOT restricted, however, to the
    workshop attendees and papers are sought from across all the timetabling
    and rostering research community.

    The articles submitted will be peer-reviewed, according to the usual
    procedure of the European Journal of Operational Research.

    Topics covered by the feature issue may include, but are not restricted
    to the following aspects of Timetabling and Rostering:

        o Applications
        o Theoretical Issues
        o Heuristics and Meta-heuristics
        o Knowledge Based Approaches
        o Distribution and Large Scale Issues
        o Solution Quality and Evaluation
        o The Impact of Emerging Technologies

    Manuscripts can be submitted either via e-mail or by sending 4
    hard-copies to the address indicated below. All submissions should
