The Scheduling and Optimisation team carry out research into intelligent scheduling and optimisation techniques that may be applied to complex problems in Science, Engineering or Business.

Applications areas include:

  • Industrial processes
  • Planning applications
  • Timetabling technologies
  • Decision support systems

The research at Queen's has a very close synergy with industry. Spin out Company EventMAP Limited represents a cumulative impact from years of research at the academic / industrial interface.

The team have developed leading edge optimisation techniques to solve complex real world problems, which have the characteristics of being both generic and robust. These characteristics are essential in reducing the recognised gap between leading edge research in the area and solutions required by industry.
