Referee assignment for volleyball championship: A competition between three local search heuristics
We model the problem of assigning referees to matches of volleyball championships as a combinatorial optimization problem. To solve it, we adapt three local search heuristics and study their behavior as a funtion of their parameters. We show the limitations of these algorithms and that the use of refined initialization algorithms and an "endgame" strategy can significantly enhance their efficiency.
