The Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation at Technische UniversitšatWien has recently developed a new scheduling software called VieSched++ as part of the Vienna VLBI and Satellite Software (VieVS). VieSched++ is written in C++, it features an elaborate backward fill-in mode for minimizing station idle time and runs multiple versions of the same schedule in a fast batch mode using different optimization criteria and parameters. Large scale Monte-Carlo simulations with VieVS can then be used for selecting the best schedule for the purpose of the session within this sample. In particular, the schedules can be optimized for the given network, source list, observing mode and scientific goal. VieSched++ has already been successfully used for scheduling multiple official IVS sessions.
