The APCASE is organized by Zenon Chaczko from the University of Technology, Sydney, Australia and Ford Lumban Gaol, IEEE Indonesia Section, Indonesia.

A HeuristicLab tutorial will be given alongside several talks concerning challenges in heuristic optimization.

Logistics Research Austria founded

The founding members of the Logistics Research Austria (LRA) gathered on Tuesday to officially found the association as a registered society. LRA members aim to further the knowledge in logistics research through cooperative projects. Members of this association come from several important research institutions in Austria including university departments, research groups at applied universities as well as members of research oriented companies. The head of LRA is Dr. Friedrich Starkl from the Logistikum in Steyr, Upper Austria.

Institutions that aim to cooperate in logistics research projects and seek partners in Austria are invited to contact LRA.

HEAL visits Grupo Integrada de Ingeniera

Following research visits by Pilar Caamano from the Grupo Integrada de Ingeneria (GII) at the HEAL laboratory in Hagenberg earlier this year, Michael Affenzeller, Erik Pitzer, and Andreas Beham have been visiting the GII in their laboratories in Ferrol, Spain last week. In their short trip they got to know the members, projects, and approaches of the group that is coordinated by Richard Duro in more detail. The visit was topped off with several presentations from our side regarding our activities, projects, and research interests as well as the HeuristicLab optimization software.

Dr. Stephan Hutterer

We would like to congratulate our colleague Stephan Hutterer as he today successfully defended his PhD thesis! Stephan joined us a couple of years ago and is doing research in smart grids and energy networks. As one of the milestones in his young career was the first place in the GECCO 2012 industrial challenge. The PhD is well earned!

Heureka! finishing event

After 5 years of intensive work the Ressel Center Heureka! finishes. Michael Affenzeller organized a lunch at the Promenadenhof in Linz where the partners came together. It was a hard-working time with many insights and discoveries, finished PhD theses, and with results that have been achieved by implementing the findings at our partners locations. We are happy to have expanded our international cooperation network and that the research group grew more visible with the work that we have been doing.

Project partners got together for a final lunch, to celebrate the end of Heureka! and to discuss and forge new ideas for proposed and future projects
