--------------------- INTROS 2003: Call For Participation -----------------------------
(our apologies for multiple receipts of this e-mail)
INtroductory TutoRials in Optimization and Search Methodologies (INTROS)
Tuesday 12th August 2003, Nottingham, UK
Being held in association with MISTA 2003. However, this is a separate event and
you can register for one without registering for the other.
On Tuesday 12th August 2003, just before the MISTA conference, there is a tutorial day
that will allow leading reseachers to present some of the modern optimization
techniques that are being used today. Each tutorial will last one and a half hours.
The tutorials are being aimed at a level applicable to students in the first year
of their PhD and, as such, will be applicable to many people including those from
industry, researchers who do not work in this field but who wish to find out more
about these techniques, as well as those working in the field who, perhaps,
need a refresher.
The running order for the day can be seen here. Registartion details can be seen here.
Student Bursaries can be seen here.
There there also be a book from the event, which we hope will be published about
one month after. This book will have a chapter for each speaker/author. The book will be
published by Kluwer.
Places will be strictly limited, so early registration is essential.
The confirmed speakers/authors so far are:
1.Dipankar Dasgupta* : Artificial Immune Systems
2.Kalyanmoy Deb* : Multi-objective Optimization
3.Eugene Freuder% & Mark Wallace* : Constraint Reasoning
4.Michel Gendreau* : Tabu Search
5.David Goldberg* : Genetic Algorithms
6.Pierre Hansen* & Nenad Mladenovic%: Variable Neighborhood Search
7.John Koza% & Riccardo Poli* : Genetic Programming
8.Roman Slowinski* : Rough Set Based Decision Support
9.Mike Trick* & Robert Bosch% : Integer Programming
10.Darrell Whitley* & John-Paul Watson%: Complexity Theory and The No Free Lunch Theorem
11.Xin Yao* : Machine Learning
