This paper examines the application of neural networks as a construction heuristic for the examination timetabling problem. Building on the heuristic ordering technique, where events are ordered by decreasing scheduling difficulty, the neural network allows a novel dynamic, multi-criteria approach to be developed. The difficulty of each event to be scheduled is assessed on several characteristics, removing the dependence of an ordering based on a single heuristic. Furthermore, this techniquedoi:10.1007/11844297_40 fatcat:b4dd2hqelbdo3cbrfoyxuzf6ea
