Abstract

•A memetic algorithm for solving examination timetabling problems is proposed. •A hybrid approach with a cellular Evolutionary Algorithm with Threshold Acceptance. •The cells improve on the search capability of the embedded local search algorithm. •The effect of the Threshold Acceptance level on the exam scheduling is studied. •Competitive results on both the Toronto and the ITC 2007 benchmarks.
