HeuristicLab on the shortlist of Microsoft's Innovation Award!

Hooray! We are proud to announce that HeuristicLab is on the shortlist of 12 finalists competing for Microsoft's Innovation Award 2009. From 64 submissions 12 projects have been selected of which a jury will further select and create a ranking.

Further conference reports

Gabriel Kronberger is currently attending the EuroGP conference in Tübingen, Germany presenting his study "On Crossover Success Rate in Genetic Programming with Offspring Selection".

The EuroGP continues from today until Friday, April 17th 2009.

Conference Attendances

Our colleague Stephan Winkler is going to represent our research group on heuristic and evolutionary optimization at two conferences in the near future: At the Science Symposium of the Austrian Universities for Applied Sciences 2009 in Villach, Carinthia, he is going to present the paper "Analyse von Patientendaten und Evolutionäres Design von Virtuellen Sensoren für Erkrankungen" ("Analysis of Medical Data of Patients and the Design of Virtual Ssensors for Diseases"), and at the International Workshop on Nature Inspired Distributed Computing (organized within the 23rd IEEE International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium in Rome, Italy) he is going to present the paper "Fine Grained Population Diversity Analysis for Parallel Genetic Programming".

New team member

Erik Pitzer

We are proud to welcome another official member to the Heureka/HeuristicLab team. Erik Pitzer has already been an active developer on the 2nd iteration of the HeuristicLab architecture, but took the chance to go to Harvard Medical School in the mean time. He is now back and working on structure identification problems within Heureka as well as working actively on the next version of the HeuristicLab architecture, which is scheduled for release in the beginning of next year.

Open day at the FH OÖ

Members of the Heureka Team talked to students about their research and education work during the annual open day in Hagenberg. Interested people were introduced into the world of heuristic optimization. We talked a lot about the importance and the inspiration that comes from nature for deriving new optimization techniques as well as giving an overview of the range of applications from route planning, to schedule optimization and system identification.
