International Symposium on Scheduling 2015


July 4 - 6, 2015

Kobe Industrial Promotion Center Convention Hall

Kobe, Hyogo, JAPAN

Scheduling researches have been evolving in their theoretical aspects and practical applications in the last several decades. The area of the researches is widely spreading from industries for tangible products such as manufacturing systems, project management, logistics and transportation, to services for intangible products such as health care, education, sports management, and so on. For several organizations, scheduling is one of the key technologies to improve the quality of service and to survive in the fierce competition. This international symposium has aimed to give opportunities for researchers and practitioners to exchange innovative ideas on various topics of scheduling and related areas. Commencing in Shizuoka 2002, and continued in Hyogo 2004, Tokyo 2006, Aichi 2009, Osaka 2011, Tokyo 2013. In those symposiums, not only domestic researchers but also foreign researchers gathered and contributed to enhancing communication networks. In order to expand the scheduling theories and applications, the seventh International Symposium on Scheduling will be planned to hold at a seaside area of Kobe in 2015. Through the symposium, it is expected that knowledge and technology of the latest scheduling methodology will be communicated, and some seeds/ ideas for future researches and practices will be discovered.
