Solving the Examination Timetabling Problem in GPUs

Vasileios Kolonias, George Goulas, Christos Gogos, Panayiotis Alefragis, Efthymios Housos
2014 Algorithms  
In this paper, a hybrid evolutionary algorithm running on a GPU is employed to solve the examination timetabling problem.  ...  The GPU computational capabilities allow the use of very large population sizes, leading to a more thorough exploration of the problem solution space.  ...  To our knowledge, there is no previous work solving the examination timetabling problem with a hybrid evolutionary algorithm on a GPU.  ...
