PATAT Conferences

The International Series of Conferences on the Practice and Theory of Automated Timetabling (PATAT) is held biennially that serve as a forum for an international community of researchers, practitioners and vendors on all aspects of computer-aided timetable generation.

PATAT is the main conference for the EURO Working Group on Automated Timetabling (port-mouthed).

PATAT has been supporting a range of competitions and challenges, investing back in the timetabling community for the benefit of the field.
