International Timetabling Competition

Problem Instances

The instances we have provided are all based on data from real institutions. It is not known if there is a perfect solution.

Twelve problem instances will be used for evaluation of the algorithms. These are broken into the following sets;

Early Instances

A first set of instances are currently available here.

Late Instances

A second set of instances will be published here two weeks before the competition deadline.

Hidden Instances

A third set of instances will be revealed only after the competition has closed and the participants have submitted their solvers. In addition to the early and late instances, these will be used to internally rank the solvers submitted. Competitors should read the competition rules for a full description of this.
