The Dagstuhl Seminar on "Parallel Scheduling" was organized by Ed Coffman, Ernst W. Mayr, and Uwe Schwiegelshohn. In this event, 29 researchers from 10 countries participated. In 27 talks they presented their latest results on scheduling, covering a wide range of topics. The abstracts of these talks have been collected in this report.

Special events were a hiking tour on Wednesday afternoon and an open problems session held on Thursday evening. Most of the open problems presented there have been included at the end of this report.

Due to the outstanding facilities at Schloß Dagstuhl, this seminar was a most enjoyable and memorable event.


In the series Dagstuhl Reports each Dagstuhl Seminar and Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshop is documented. The seminar organizers, in cooperation with the collector, prepare a report that includes contributions from the participants' talks together with a summary of the seminar.
