Extensions to a memetic timetabling system.

  This paper describes work in progress to increase the performance of a memetic timetabling system. The features looked at are two directed mutation operators, targeted mutation and a structured population that facilitates parallel implementation. Experimental results are given that show good performance improvements with directed and targeted mutation, and acceptable first results with the structure population.
