PMS 2024 | April 3–5, University of Bern

Call for Papers

PMS is an international workshop series initiated by the EURO Working Group on Project Management and Scheduling. The workshop is held every two years in different locations in Europe and brings together researchers and practitioners from Computer Science, Operations Research, Optimization Engineering, Mathematical Programming, and Industrial Engineering. The scientific program covers a broad range of topics related to Project Management and Scheduling, including both theoretical and applied research.

The 19th International Workshop on Project Management and Scheduling – PMS 2024 – takes place from April 3–5, 2024, at the University of Bern in Switzerland. 

The workshop covers the following (non-exhaustive) list of topics:

  • Project Management: network modeling, project scheduling, project scheduling under uncertainty, project risk management and control, multi-project scheduling, resource management, due-date management, applications and software

  • Machine Scheduling: shop scheduling, parallel machine scheduling, scheduling with additional constraints, machine assignment and scheduling, flexible/robust scheduling, grid scheduling, multicriteria scheduling, applications and software

Methodological and theoretical papers related to Operations Research, Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning models and exact and heuristic algorithms for scheduling problems are welcome as well as papers on data-driven approaches, practical applications, and industrial case studies.

All researchers, academics, PhD students, and practitioners working on these themes are invited to join PMS 2024 by submitting an extended abstract (max. 4 pages). All submissions will undergo a standard reviewing process of international workshops, and a selection of submissions will be presented during the workshop. After the workshop, authors will have the opportunity to submit full papers to a special issue of an international journal.

For guidelines and templates, please visit the Paper Submission page. Papers can be submitted from September 1 through October 30, 2023.
