The aim of the project is to gain a deeper understanding of modelling and solving real-world planning and scheduling problems, and to bring researches from different areas (constraint and logic programming, operations research, and parallel algorithms) a nd institutions (Charles University, Masaryk University) to co-operate on solving these problems. In particular, we plan to propose generic models for planning and scheduling problems based on real-world problems, like planning and scheduling in complex process environments, metacomputing scheduling, and timetabling, and to design solving algorithms for these models using technology sharing between constraint programming, artificial intelligence, and operations research. Last but not least we plan to i mprove the efficiency of the proposed algorithms by using a multi-agent technology and parallel implementations.
