- (30-6-2014). I have assigned the remaining presentations to the sessions. The program of Wednesday can be found here; the program of Friday can be found here. Just like last Friday, presentations last 25 minutes (including questions); after each talk there is a short break of 10 minutes during which you can switch to another session.
- (24-6-2014). I have made a preliminary program for the presentations; the talks for next week still have to divided over the sessions.
- (23-6-2014). Just to make sure:
you are not allowed to take your notes etc. to the exam.- (20-6-2014). The schedule for the oral examinations is now
FINAL. The same holds for the schedule for the presentations, but here I still have to determine the sessions. There are still some people who have not passed on the paper that they want to present: please hurry.- (18-6-2014). I have updated the schedule of the presentations and the schedule of the oral examinations: Benjamin, Iris, and Dimitri are scheduled on Monday morning, June 23; Peter ter Haar has been put on Tuesday morning, June 24 (replacing Dirk van Wijk).
- (13-6-2014). I have prepared a short overview of the scheduling notation, problems, solution methods, etc. You can find it in summary scheduling.
- (13-6-2014). The fifth (and last) assignment is available. The deadline is June 27 at the start of the presentations; it is an individual assignment. You can find the exercises here.
- (11-6-2014) I have graded the fourth assignment. The results can be found here.
- (6-6-2014) I have made a preliminary schedule for the oral examinations. I have transferred two people to Wednesday, July 9. If your name does not appear in this list, then contact me. If you want another time slot, then please try to arrange it yourself and contact me. I will come back to this schedule on Wednesday, June 11.
- (6-6-2014) The frame entitled Examination is now available; it contains information on the presentations and the oral examination.
- (5-6-2014) I have made a preliminary assignment of the presentations. Please let me know if this is not correct.

- (2-6-2014) Just to make sure: the fourth (and also the fifth) assignment have to be prepared
indivdually.- (28-5-2014) On Friday, June 13, Johan van Rooij (CQM) will present a talk in the course on elevator scheduling. He has given this talk before, but then it overlapped with the exam of Geometric algorithms.
- (28-5-2014) The fourth assignment is available on the web; the deadline is Friday, June 6.
- (28-5-2014) Even though it is still very far away, I have already reserved some slots for the oral examinations. The idea is that you first get one hour to prepare, after which the exam follows (also one hour). The time slots are 9.30-11.30, 10.30-12.30, 12.00-14.00, 13.00-15.00, 14.00-16.00, 15.00-17.00. The following dates might be used (but I want to cluster the exams): June 23, 24, 25, 26, 30 and July 3, 7, 8; on Mondays, there are not exams after 14.00. The slots will be assigned in the near future.
- (26-5-2014) If you want to get some additional knowledge on algoritms, then this site might be interesting.
- (26-5-2014) Since there are not enough rooms available for the presentations except for in the exam week, I have rescheduled the presentation slots. There will be 2 parallel streams on Friday June 27, three on Wednesday July 2, and three on Friday July 4; each stream consists of at most 5 presentations. The
slots will be assigned on Wednesday, June 4.You are expected to be present on the days of the lectures (even though would not mind yourself if there was nobody present at your talk).- (21-5-2014) For the third assignment you have to imagine that you are a consultant who was approached by this buscompany to solve the problem. You must come up with an algorithmic approach in which you sketch how to attack the problem. This approach can then be implemented by your associate, who knows everything about all basic techniques. Your report should explain to him what to do.
- (21-5-2014) On Friday, May 23, I want to start at 9.30. Until 10.45, I want to repeat the max-flow and min-cost-max-flow problem (if you feel that you already know this, then you might show up at 11.00). Then I will continue with the basic rostering problems.
- (20-5-2014) The following papers have been chosen for the presentation at the end of the course.
- (20-5-2014) There is a mistake in the second assignment. You must indicate how to find an
initialsolution (instead of an additional solution). Due to this mistake, the deadline for handing in the second assignment has been changed to Friday, May 23.- (15-5-2014) I have graded the first assignment. The results can be found here.
- (8-5-2014) There will be no lecture on Friday, May 16.
- (8-5-2014) As announced during the lecture, assignments 2 and 3 are now available at the website.
- (6-5-2014) Tomorrow, the lecture will take place in WISK 611AB (in the Hans Freudenthal Building).
From next week onwards, the lectures will take place in BBL 161 on Wednesday.- (6-5-2014) On Thursday May 8, Judith Stoef will give a presentation in the COSC colloquium on applying column generation in combination with an interior point method to solve LPs. It will start at 12.00 and take place in Minnaert 208.
- (25-4-2014) I have put the first take-home assignment on the website. I have also added the slides used in today's lecture on the site. Moreover, I have put the description of the ILP model of the hospital problem on the web.
- (24-4-2014) For some reason, a limit to the number of participants has been set in Osiris. If everything went according to plan, you can register again.
- (23-4-2014) Tomorrow Vincent Bons will present a talk in the COSC-colloquium, which may be interesting. Details can be found here.
- (23-4-2014) Today's lecture will take place in
BBL 2.01.- (16-4-2014) On Wednesday, four hours of lectures have been scheduled in Osiris. This is a mistake: I will only teach from 13.15-15.00. On Friday, four hours of lectures have been scheduled as well; in general, I will only use three hours. Therefore, we start at 10.00 on Friday.
- (16-4-2014) We start on Wednesday, April 23. There will be a guest appearance of Johan van Rooij from CQM concerning consultancy skills.
