Session B Wrap-up Summary and Commentary Roman Barták Charles University (Czech Republic)
SSC 2007, Roman Barták 2Summary Three papers proposing benchmark areas Reactive scheduling Over-subscribed scheduling Real-life scheduling Wrap-up paper on benchmarks Two papers describing experience with other competitions International Timetabling Competition International Planning Competition
SSC 2007, Roman Barták 3 Other competitions We should learn from others. We are completely different. Why should one run a (scheduling) competition? compare the systems or algorithms? bridging the gap between theory and practice? advance the research? drive the research? promote the research? just to play? ……
SSC 2007, Roman Barták 4Benchmarks real-life motivated vs. academic problems going beyond classical scheduling dynamic aspects over-subscribed different objectives (robustness,…) common representation language for covering „all“ scheduling problems generating problem instances vs. real-life data parameters to vary problem hardness or to vary problem type evaluation criteria is runtime so bad? conclusions from the competition any winner?
