The EURO Working Group on Project Management and Scheduling (WG-PMS) provides an excellent opportunity to discuss recent and important issues in the field of project management (project planning, project scheduling, project control), and machine scheduling (single and parallel processor problems, flow shops, open shops, job shops, etc.). For this special issue, we are seeking the best available new research in these areas in order to provide a valuable resource for scholars and practitioners striving to leverage techniques and knowledge to improve project management and scheduling.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited, to the following:
Project management:
•    Network modeling,
•    Project scheduling,
•    Resource management,
•    Due-date management,
•    Project risk management,
•    Project scheduling under uncertainty,
•    Proactive/reactive project scheduling,
•    Multicriteria project scheduling,
•    Applications,
•    Software.
Machine scheduling:
•    Shop scheduling,
•    Scheduling with additional constraints,
•    Machine assignment and scheduling,
•    Flexible/robust scheduling,
•    Grid scheduling,
•    Multicriteria scheduling,
•    Applications,
•    Software.
Papers should employ a rigorous research methodology, including operations research and empirical research and should have relevance and practicable implications. Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere.
