How does A.I. optimize your agenda?

NoConf’s optimization engine generates schedules based on constraints. You can turn a constraint on or off at any moment. Feel free to choose which properties your schedule are must have - requirements, and which ones are just nice to have - preferences.

Requirements

For the A.I. engine, satisfying the requirements is the highest priority. Whenever a requirement is not met it is respectively highlighted in an agenda view, so you won’t miss it. Through requirements, you make sure that the most important qualities of your schedule are in place.

  • Respect speaker availability (days and time slots) when scheduling their talks
  • Schedule talks at specific days, rooms or time slots
  • Prevent two talks of the same speaker to be scheduled at the same time
  • Require minimal pause time between two talks of the same speaker
  • Require sessions to be scheduled in particular order

Preferences

Preferences are properties of a schedule that the algorithm tries to satisfy as much as possible, while meeting all of the requirements. You can prioritize the importance of each preference. With each agenda, you obtain a preference scoring, which describes how well the properties are optimized.

  • More popular talks in bigger rooms
  • Diversity in topics or difficulty of talks scheduled at the same time
  • Minimize the overall length of a conference or needed venue space
  • Schedule grouped talks in a particular room or day
  • Schedule easier talks before more advanced ones
