  abstract     = {{MACE Scheduler software generates automated schedule for the observations of preloaded high energy gamma-ray sources. The paper presents the design of MACE Scheduler software covering; source rise/set time calculation algorithms; auto and manual schedule generation; various data visualizations provided for schedule and source visibility reports. The schedule generation for a specific period is automated using a filter workflow. The sources are selected for scheduling by processing the sources through a series of customizable user defined filters; source visibility filter, priority filter, priority resolution filter. The workflow provides flexibility to apply any user tailored filter criteria that can be loaded dynamically using XML schema. Loosely coupled design allowed decoupling the astronomical timing calculation algorithms from schedule preparation workflow. Scheduler provides metro UI based interface for source filtering workflow generating auto-schedule, updating the generated schedules. Tree-map visualization helped to represent hierarchical multi-dimensional schedule information for the selected date range. WPF flat UI control templates focused more on content than chrome}},
