International Workshop on Scheduling in Healthcare Systems (SCHEALS'08)
15-16 September 2008
American University of Armenia
Yerevan, Armenia

Many Healthcare providers have suffered a crisis of poor quality and inefficiency with rapidly increasing costs. Healthcare delivery faces complex scheduling needs and stands to gain from advances in scheduling technology and understanding.
The SCHEALS 2008 workshop will take place at American University of Armenia (AUA) in the city of Yerevan, in conjunction with the 1st International Conference on Applied Operational Research (ICAOR'08).
We invite you to join your colleagues for this international forum. Sharing of ideas, knowledge and experience is the primary goal of the workshop. The meeting would be ideal for young researchers to present their work, even at a preliminary stage, for constructive discussion and feedback.

Workshop Theme
The workshop will cover the general area of scheduling with particular emphasis being placed on healthcare applications, including:
* Artificial Intelligence
* Automation
* Commercial Packages
* Exact Methods
* Expert Systems
* Fuzzy Greedy Search
* Fuzzy Reasoning
* Heuristics
* Hybrid Methods
* Hyper-Heuristics
* Machine Scheduling
* Meta-Heuristics
* Optimisation
* Patient Scheduling
* Personnel Scheduling
* Queuing
* Rescheduling
* Shift Timetabling
* Simulation
* Soft Computing
* Uncertainty

Paper Submission
Researchers wishing to contribute to the workshop are invited to submit manuscripts of not more than 12 pages either as full papers or extended abstracts. The working language of the workshop is English.
Authors are encouraged to prepare their manuscripts in LNCS style using the MS Word template provided by Springer, please see Information for LNCS Authors.
Papers should be submitted in MS Word (.doc) via email to tadbir@tadbirstm.org.ir. Each submission will be assigned an identification number. Please quote this in all correspondence.
All submissions will be reviewed by at least two referees, and successful papers will be included in the Workshop Proceedings.

Special Issue
The authors of accepted papers will have the opportunity to submit extended versions of their papers for consideration to a post-workshop special issue of the Journal of Applied Operational Research (JAOR) ISSN 1735-8523. We celebrate JAOR's launch at this particular occasion.

About Armenia
American University of Armenia (AUA) is located in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, considered to be one of the oldest cities in the world, founded around 782 B.C. Today, Yerevan is an urban metropolitan centre with about one million residents. It covers about 300 square kilometres. Yerevan lies at an altitude of between 950 and 1200 meters above sea level and is surrounded by beautiful hills and mountains. Mount Ararat is visible from many parts of the city.
The climate is generally moderate. Winter can be harsh, however, particularly in the mountainous regions. Spring is short lived. Summer lasts four months. Autumn is mild and sunny. The city, like many other cities, is built around a central downtown area. It has many squares and open spaces offering travellers a chance to explore it by walking along parks, fountains, and numerous monuments. Yerevan is also renowned for its active cultural and artistic life with annual opera, ballet, symphony and theatre seasons. It is home to several museums ranging from modern art to history and culture.
The official language of Armenia is Armenian. Most people know Russian, and English is fast becoming a commonly used foreign language.
