Josef Ressel Centre Heureka!

Project Duration: 
Wednesday, October 1, 2008 to Monday, September 30, 2013

Research at HEUREKA! will be focused on the topic of metaheuristics. These generic methods are able to solve combinatorial problems as well as problems in non-linear structure identification, such as classification or time series analyses, which are all relevant for the industries. Metaheuristics can provide good solutions to such problems quickly but it cannot be guaranteed that the global optimal solution is found. Not all of these methods perform equally well on all problems and thus a number of specialized heuristic approaches have been developed that employ different strategies. We plan to study the application of existing generic enhancements as well as develop new advanced self adaptive concepts which increase the robustness of the developed algorithms.
