Optimization Group Meetings
You can subscribe to an iCalendar of these meetings at http://iridia.ulb.ac.be/Calendars/publish.php/_NUC_Optimization.ics
Breakfast meetings are informal meetings where there is a general discussion or someone presents their work. And additional goal is to have breakfast together.
- Send an email to the responsible of Optimization Meetings. Mention your name, your affiliation, the date, time and room, and a short summary of what you are going to talk about.
- Add a new entry to the table below.
- Bring breakfast.
History of Breakfast Meetings
|2010-12-21||Paola Pellegrini||Off-line vs. On-line Tuning: A Study on MAX-MIN Ant System for the TSP|
|2010-10-19||Stefano Benedettini||Experiments on Boolean Network Design by Local Search Algorithms.|
|2010-05-20||Marco Montes de Oca||The social learning strategies tournament, organized as part of the cultaptation project, and its results were described. No ideas about algorithm portfolios were discussed.|

|2010-03-18||Sabrina Oliveira||Achieved results from the application of the Population Based Ant Colony Optimisation algorithm to TSP.|
|2010-02-11||Sara Ceschia||An overview of Container Loading Problems.|
|2010-01-21||Yuan, Zhi (Eric)||Rice cooker vs. the idea of tuning.|
|2010-01-07||Thomas StÃ¼ztle||General discussion about the optimization group.|
The goal of the Literature Sessions is to examine and discuss particularly interesting papers from the research literature. For each session, one paper will be selected, there will be a short presentation (10-15 minutes) about the contents, and a discussion will ensue. Sessions will last around 40-45 minutes. Attendants should read the paper before the session in order to have a productive discussion.
- Book a room (ask Muriel).
- Send an email to the responsible of Optimization Meetings. Mention your name, your affiliation, the date, time and room, a reference to the paper and the URL where it can be obtained. Also, attach the paper in PDF.
- Add a new entry to the table below. Use YYY-MM-DD (year-month-day) format for the date. Please add a complete bibliographic reference (you may find it in the homepages of the authors) and a hyperlink to a PDF (links to http://dx.doi.org are preferred).
