This presentation is aiming at introducing the academic scheduling problems using ITC2007 benchmarks as examples. Meanwhile, two systems developed using hyper-heuristic are going to be delivered with the design details as well as the experimental results. The motivation of this work is to identify how to design an approach which is featured with high generality and flexibility. As we believed this is how we can build our work and put into real-world use eventually.
