The best of both worlds: Combining the Flexibility of Modeling & Simulation with Optimization by Evolutionary Algorithms

Michael Affenzeller as keynote speaker at the I3M conference in Barcelona!

Every year, the I3M Multiconference renovates the opportunity to bring together researchers, scientists and practitioners, from the Mediterranean Area, Latin & North Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia, who are concerned with Modeling and Simulation in Industry and Academia.

Affenzeller's presentation will cover theoretical aspects as well as real world examples demonstrating how the open source framework HeuristicLab can be used for modeling, optimization and machine learning tasks for concrete challenges in the domain of production, logistics and systems research.

Evolutionary Algorithms Pioneer Nic McPhee visiting Hagenberg campus

We are glad to announce that Nicolas Freitag McPhee from the University of Minnesota, Morris visited our campus after the Berlin GECCO giving many valuable hints to Patrik Kimmeswenger, who is implementing PushGP in HeuristicLab in his master thesis. Nic McPhee has authored and co-authored many relevant publications especially in the field of genetic programming like the field guide to genetic programming; his recent research interests include the analysis of GP ancestry which brought us in contact as our colleague Bogdan Burlacu has also been working in this field over the last years within the scope of his PhD thesis and has spent a research visit in Morris last year.

Another Award for Viktoria Hauder @ Sigevo Summer School 2017

SIGEVO is a special interest group of ACM who is always looking for new ways to improve research and learning on genetic and evolutionary calculations.
In this search for the spread of knowledge and experience in this area, a summer school around GECCO 2017 in Berlin was organized for the first time this year: S3 (Sigevo Summer School).

Our researcher Viktoria Hauder was again awarded the prize for "Best assignment resolution of appreciation 2nd place​". ( with Dr. Manuel Lopez-Ibanez​, 2. photo with Prof. Enrique Alba and Dennis Wilson)

We would like to congratulate you on this award!
