An LP-based heuristic for the post enrolment course timetabling problem of the ITC

Abstract

We present a deterministic heuristic for the post enrolment course timetabling problem of the ITC. The heuristic is based on an LP-solution constructed with column generation. We get an integer solution by fixing a column one at a time. Our results are compared with the results of the five finalists.
