International Timetabling Competition

Curriculum Based Course Timetabling

The Curriculum-based timetabling problem consists of the weekly scheduling of the lectures for several university courses within a given number of rooms and time periods, where conflicts between courses are set according to the curricula published by the University and not on the basis of enrolment data.

This formulation applies to the School of Engineering of the University of Udine (Italy) and to many Italian and indeed International Universities, although it is slightly simplified with respect to the real problem to maintain a certain level of generality.

The dataset is entirely composed by real-world instances coming from the University of Udine.

A technical report detailing the content of this track can be downloaded here.

See also the website of the SaTT group at Udine for some more information about this problem and some extra instances for testing.
