Workshop on Oversubscribed Planning & Scheduling - Call for Papers

In many planning and scheduling applications it is not possible to achieve all requested goals. For example, in space mission scheduling it may not be possible to observe all of the requested targets. Similarly, in manufacturing it may not be possible to fulfill all of the production orders.

This workshop targets problems and techniques for planning and scheduling problems where it is not possible to achieve all of the problem goals. As such, it often includes representation of optimization, preferences, and/or cost to provide guidance as to desirability over partial solutions.

We are soliciting paper on all topics relating to oversubscribed planning & scheduling, including:
