  abstract =     "We present a grammar-based genetic programming
                 framework for the solving the timetabling problem via
                 the evolution of constructive heuristics. The grammar
                 used for producing new generations is based on graph
                 colouring heuristics that have previously proved to be
                 effective in constructing timetables as well as
                 different slot allocation heuristics. The framework is
                 tested on a widely used benchmarks in the field of exam
                 time-tabling and compared with highly-tuned
                 state-of-the- art approaches. Results shows that the
                 framework is very competitive with other constructive
                 techniques.",

                 with randomness in existing low level heuristics, each
