Nomination for the logistics award 2013

One of our projects that we worked on in the Josef Ressel Centre Heureka! together with our partner Rosenbauer International AG has been nominated for the logistics award 2013. The project treats the optimization of the storage location for items in a high rack warehouse identifying items that are going to be picked together and that should be stored together. We are very proud of this nomination and would like to share the video that was created to describe the project.

Invited Talk and HeuristicLab Demo at GPTP

Michael Affenzeller's invited talk on symbolic regression and genetic programming has been very well received by the participants of the prestigious GPTP-workshop (Genetic Programming in Theory and Practice) in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Stefan Wagner got a chance to give a live demonstration of our latest version of the HeuristicLab software and it's features for symbolic regression and genetic programming.

Following the talk, many interesting discussions revolved around research topics that we have been working on in the last years, also within the Josef Ressel center "Heureka!". In particular, our developments to improve the applicability of symbolic regression to real-worlds problems hit a nerve of with many participants and led to many insightful discussions. We are looking forward to next year's workshop!

Stephan Winkler visiting the University of Alcalá de Henares in Spain

Stephan Winkler spent some days at the Department of Physics and Mathematics of the University of Alcalá de Henares. Together with Prof. Bonifacio Castaño he worked on prognosis models for stocks, indices and trading rules optimization implemented in HeuristicLab; in cooperation with Prof. J. Rafael Sendra he also researched on the optimization of polynomials using evolutionary algorithms. We look forward to seeing the results of this work in the future in the form of joint research articles and project proposals!
