GPTP 2013 Workshops

Michael Affenzeller and Stefan Wagner are going to attend this years GPTP 2013 workshop which takes place at the campus of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. The GPTP workshop is a small invite-only event and offers a good opportunity to discuss in depth important challenges and approaches in the field of genetic programming. Prof. Affenzeller will give a keynote talk on symbolic regression and Prof. Wagner will hold a HeuristicLab tutorial showing some of the useful data analysis and genetic programming features built into HL.

Stephan Hutterer at the IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence

HEAL researcher Stephan Hutterer attended the IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence which took place in Singapore. The IEEE SSCI is one of the flagship international events sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (IEEE CIS), promoting all aspects of the theory and applications of computational intelligence. Stephan is very happy to have presented his work on intelligent electric vehicle charging control in front of the audience at the "Symposium on Computational Intelligence Applications in Smart Grid".

Stephan also took the opportunity to join the meeting of the CIS task force on smart grid, discussing future aspects of smart grids as well as activities of the task force.

HEAL researchers at Evo* 2013 in Vienna, Austria

HEAL members Stefan Wagner, Erik Pitzer, Gabriel Kronberger, Stephan Hutterer and Andreas Beham have been attending Evo* 2013 to present their work and discuss the state of metaheuristic methods, optimization problems, and industry-relevant applications.

EvoStar comprises of five co-located conferences run each spring at different locations throughout Europe. These events arose out of workshops originally developed by EvoNet, the Network of Excellence in Evolutionary Computing, established by the Information Societies Technology Programme of the European Commission, and they represent a continuity of research collaboration stretching back nearly 20 years.

We hope to meet again at next year's Evo* in Baeza, Spain.

Monika Kofler in Australia

HEAL researcher Monika Kofler is leaving for Australia where she will be staying for the next year. We would like to thank Monika for the great time that she has already been with us and the many hours that she has devoted to establish and grow our group. We wish her an enjoyable and successful time down under! Monika is determined to complete her thesis and deepen the ties with the University of Technology, Sydney.

Looking back at Eurocast 2013

Our group members had a great time at the Eurocast 2013 conference in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria. We used the opportunity to meet up with fellow researchers such as Günther Raidl and his team from the Vienna University of Technology, Richard F. Hartl from the University of Vienna, Zenon Chaczko from UTS Sydney, Carmen Paz Suárez Araujo from the Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria as well as Jan Nikodem and Ryszard Klempous from Wroclaw University of Technology. Stephan Winkler even managed to get a picture with guest speaker and legendary system theorist Rudolf E. Kalman.

Eurocast is a biannual conference which takes place every odd year. Since last year the conference has a "younger sibling" called APCast, which takes place every even year in the Asia Pacific region.
