NEW RESULTS in frequency assignment planning, obtained in the years following the CALMA project can be found at the Maastricht WEBsite.
CALMA is the name of a research project setting out to determine strengths and weaknesses of a range of solution approaches to combinatorial problems.
The project has been financed by the Ministeries of Defence of the Netherlands, France, and the United Kingdom in the EUCLID programme RTP 6-4 as part of CEPA 6 (Artificial Intelligence).

The enhanced versions of proposed algorithms perform close to the lower bounds while running for a reasonable duration.
Another novelty of our study is its consideration of the net filter discrimination effects in the communication model.
