The Call For Papers for the session(s) on Planning and Scheduling is
open until May 2nd:

Papers are invited in the general area of planning and scheduling of
manufacturing processes. Planning and scheduling are key decision-making
activities that vary in scope from the operational (day) and tactical
(week) level, to the strategic (month/year) level. Despite the
significant progress in this area in the last decade, many industrial
problems still remain open. Areas of interest in this session include
(but are not limited to): (i) novel modeling and optimization strategies
for planning and scheduling of batch and continuous plants, (ii)
integration of planning and scheduling in a unified framework, (iii)
technologies for the analysis and visualization of planning and
scheduling solutions in the context of enterprise-level decision making,
(iv) novel incorporation of modeling uncertainty into planning and
scheduling from plant operations and project management to the extended
supply chain and (v) successful large-scale applications of new planning
and scheduling methodologies. Application papers offering insights into
the interaction between theory and practice in an industrial setting are
particularly encouraged.
