Many 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.

Publications are also available from my publication page (though not updated very frequently).


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

Together with Holger Hoos I have created SATLIB, an online collection of benchmark instances and solvers for propositional satisfiability problems.


The second semester of the academic year 2017/18 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.
