Most of my papers are also listed in DB/LP; you may also check my google scholar profile for a list of my publications according to number of citations.

Many publications are also available from my publication page.


I'm associate editor of
Computational Intelligence and Swarm Intelligence and member of the editorial board of the journals European Journal of Industrial Engineering, Evolutionary Computation, Soft Computing, and International Journal of Applied Metaheuristic Computing.

I'm track chair of the Evolutionary Combinatorial Optimization and Metaheuristics track at GECCO 2014. I'm a programme committee member of the following events: AAAI 2014, CEC 2014, ECAI 2014, EvoCOP 2014, HM 2014, ICAART 2014, ICORES 2014, KI 2014, LION 8, META 2014, ORBEL 28, and PPSN 2014. Together with Holger Hoos I have created SATLIB, an online collection of benchmark instances and solvers for propositional satisfiability problems.
For details on other activities, please see my CV (January 2013)


The second semester of the academic year 2014/15 I'm teaching
The course introduces heuristic techniques for the effective solution of hard decision and optimization problems. A main focus of the course is on stochastic local search methods.
