Jan Zenisek won Gianni Cantice Award for Gifted Simulation Students at I3M conference

Our research group member Jan Zenisek won the VI Edition of Gianni Cantice Award for Gifted Simulation Students for his submission "Smart Maintenance Lifecylce Management: A Design Proposal". 

The  Award  Winner  is  announced,  as  each  year,  during  I3M  Conference  (2016  Cyprus,  2015  Bergeggi,  2014  Bordeaux, 2013 Athens, 2012 Wien) as best simulation student(s) among the applicants. The Award is entitled to Col. Gianni Cantice as recognition for his long activity in Simulation. Requirements: Students (e.g. engineering, mathematics, physics, etc.) enrolled in Simulation Researches in Institute, Universities & Agencies are entitled to participate. Students from all countries are invited to send R&D Papers & Applications. The prize also includes the next I3M-conference fee for 2018's edition. 

We would like to congratulate you, Jan, on this award!

Dr. Bogdan Burlacu - Congratulations!

Dr. Bogdan Burlacu

We would like to congratulate our colleague Bogdan Burlacu who successfully defended his PhD thesis yesterday! Bogdan joined us a couple of years ago and is doing research in genetic programming. He has done his PhD within the international PhD program jointly organized by JKU and FH Upper Austria and finished his PhD studies with distinction.

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.

Looking for researchers

We are looking for staff again - find the necessary information in the profile description.

Do not hesitate to contact us! We are looking forward to your application.


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.
