MISTA 2019: call for papers


Once again EventMAP are delighted to be a sponsor of MISTA, which takes place in China for the first time this year, from 12th – 15th December in the port city of Ningbo in China’s eastern Zhejiang province.

MISTA (Multidisciplinary International Scheduling Conference: Theory & Applications) is a long-running biennial conference that serves as a forum for researchers, practitioners and vendors working on all aspects of multi-disciplinary scheduling in areas such as artificial intelligence, computer science, engineering, management, manufacturing, mathematics and operational research.

The conference series has just issued its call for submissions for both full papers and abstracts – the deadline for submission is 30th August and more information can be found here.

Commenting on the announcement, EventMAP’s Managing Director and MISTA co-chair, Dr. Barry McCollum, said, “EventMAP have been proudly associated with MISTA since their first ever conference in 2003, where we introduced to the scheduling world some of the cutting-edge algorithms now used right across our product suite.”

“Our continued involvement with MISTA underlines the huge importance of industry maintaining close ties with academic research – something we’ve always championed during our involvement with MISTA, PATAT and our ongoing engagement with Innovate UK’s Knowledge Transfer Partnerships.”

“Events like MISTA form a crucial part of the interface between academia and industry and are where some of the world’s most innovative technologies start to see the light of day. Products like our Optime Scheduling Engine were born from academic research and are now used in optimisation functions across the public and private sectors to meet the demand for ever-greater operational efficiency in organisations like the NHS, the Metropolitan Police, many Russell Group universities and commercial companies like Channel 4 and BAE.”
