Research
University Timetabling Application [web] [wiki] [download] [highlights] [demo]
Course timetabling, student sectioning, examination timetabling -- problem description, data sets, related publications, etc.

Constraint Solver [web] [download] [API] [examples] [Ph.D. Thesis] [ITC 2007]
Open source, local-search based solver of Constraint Satisfaction and Optimization Problems
The constraint solver was among finalists for all three tracks of the International Timetabling Competition 2007 and it won two of them, see [ITC 2007] for more details.
