The Local Organizing Committee and the Executive Committee of the IPT takes the distribution of jurors very seriously. For those who are interested in the details here is a short summary.
To avoid human bias in creating the schedule we have resorted to computer generation of the distribution of the jurors between the rooms. Hence, it was determined by minimizing the number of duplicate juror and team encounters using a stochastic method (in this case a genetic algorithm). The full encounter matrix for the converged solution we are using is shown below.
