PMS is an international workshop series devoted to Project Management and Scheduling. It was inaugurated by the European Working Group on Project Management and Scheduling (EURO - EWG Project management and scheduling), originally coordinated by Prof. Jan Węglarz from the Poznań University of Technology (Poland) and now coordinated by Prof. Erik Demeulemeester (KU Leuven, Belgium) and Prof. Joanna Jozefowska (Poznań University of Technology, Poland).
The EWG decided to organize a workshop every two years. The workshops provide an ideal opportunity to discuss recent and important issues in the field of project management (planning, scheduling, control) and machine scheduling (single and parallel machine problems, flow shop, job shop, etc.).
The first workshop was held in Lisbon in July 1988. The successor workshops were held in Compiègne (1990), Como (1992), Leuven (1994), Poznań (1996), Istanbul (1998), Osnabrück (2000), Valencia (2002), Nancy (2004), Poznań (2006), Istanbul (2008), Tours (2010), Leuven (2012), Munich (2014), Valencia (2016), Rome (2018). More than a thousand researchers and practitioners participated in the previous workshops.
