ARC Timetabling Practitioners Group

The ARC Timetabling Practitioners Group is a forum for timetablers in HEIs to discuss issues relating to the theory and practice of timetabling, to explore new ideas and developments and to share best practice.

The Group seeks to identify ways to raise the profile and highlight the importance of timetabling in HEIs and to improve understanding among non-timetablers of the demands and complexities of timetabling.


This website is intended to bring together outcomes from the meetings and hold any information which may be of interest to Timetablers within educational institutions.

The next meeting is to be held at Kingston University on Friday 19th February 2016. An email will be sent out to the group when the event is open for bookings and the website will also be updated. 

Future dates:

Further dates and venues to be confirmed.

If you're not currently a member of the ARC group and would like to join up please contact Lee Hollins,
