Call For Papers

Call for Papers

The biennial conference on Practice and Theory of Automated Timetabling (PATAT) has been a forum for over 20 years welcoming both researchers and practitioners of timetabling to exchange ideas. PATAT 2022 will be the thirteenth edition in this international series.
Aim and Scope

Whether it is sporting events, educational institutions, transportation or employee management the construction of efficient timetables which provide the maximum in way of flexibility for all constituent parts is as important as it is challenging. An increasingly important aspect within organisations is an automated approach which optimises all aspects of resource usage. In doing so a number of quantitative and qualitative challenges must be dealt with from both a technical and practical perspective.

An important aim of the conference is to align the needs of practitioners and the objectives of researchers. This is achieved through the presentation and application of leading edge research techniques. Practitioners and Researchers alike are encouraged to present their work and experiences with the overall goal of developing efficient and practical solutions. With this goal in mind, at PATAT 2022, researchers and practitioners will be brought together through a number of key presentations and workshops.

Topics of interest and themes of the conference include, but not limited to:

Algorithm Portfolios
Employee Rostering
Fuzzy Systems
Hybrid Methods
Machine Learning
Multi-criteria Decision Making
Resource Capacity Planning
Timetabling in Transport
Constraint-Based Methods
AI-based Systems
Graph Colouring
Mathematical Programming
Multi-objective Approaches
Sports Timetabling
Tools and Applications
Educational Timetabling
Foundational Studies
Heuristic Search
Knowledge Based Systems
Parallel/Distributed Computing
Timetabling in Healthcare


Authors are invited to submit their work in one of three categories:

Full papers: Authors should submit papers describing significant, original and unpublished work.
Abstracts: People who wish to give a talk (e.g. practitioners, researchers with preliminary or incomplete papers) but do not want to submit a full paper can submit abstracts of up to 1000 words.
System demonstrations: Authors can also submit an abstract, describing the major properties and contribution of implemented and/or commercial timetabling systems.

All submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the programme committee. Accepted papers will be invited for an oral presentation at the event and included in the PATAT 2018 proceedings after they are presented.
