New Challenges in Scheduling Theory

September, 12-17 2010, Centre CNRS "La Villa Clythia", Frejus

This workshop is the next event of the series of workshops held every two years, initiated by Jacek Blazewicz and Denis Trystram in the 90s.


The main objective of this workshop is to create a thriving atmosphere to exchange new ideas and debating on new challenges in scheduling. Each participant is encouraged to present her-his work (in a 30 mns talk, with a single track) and will have the opportunity to discuss informally with interested people.


The central thema of the workshop deals with all aspects of scheduling, from theory to implementation. A particular focus will be put on the following topics (but not restricted to) : approximation algorithms, complexity, distributed scheduling, new scheduling models (work stealing, parallel tasks, divisible load), multi-objective optimization, meta-heuristics, scheduling communications, incertainties, links of scheduling with related topics (graph theory, game theory, packing), applications of scheduling, etc..
