Abstract

A recent competition course scheduling competition saw many solution approaches which constructed an initial solution, and then improved that solution using local search. The initial solution appears to be crucial for the local search to be effective and in this work we propose a tiling technique which can quickly construct a solution which we hope can be used as a good starting point for a local search procedure
