  Bridging the Gap Between Industry and Academia in Optimisation 
                               (GECCO 2013 - Workshop) 
   
  http://www.soc.napier.ac.uk/~cs378/GECCO2013Workshop/index.html 
     
                               to be held as part of the 
  2013 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO-2013) 
                         July 6-10, Amsterdam, The Netherlands 

                
Submission Deadline : March 28th, 2013 
              

Description 
This workshop, to be held during GECCO 2013 in Amsterdam, 
The Netherlands between July 06-10, aims to address the gap between 
current state-of-the art optimization techniques emerging in the 
academic literature and the real concerns of those in industry who would 
like to use the techniques. 

Meta-heuristic optimisation techniques have been widely applied 
to solving many practical problems arising in industrial domains, with 
much success reported in the literature. However, there remains a 
worrying void between scientific research into optimisation techniques 
and those problems faced by end-users and addressed by commercial 
optimisation software vendors. From a commercial perspective, the 
problems addressed by academia are often too simplistic compared to 
those faced in the real-world, failing to embrace many real-world 
constraints (For example, even ‘rich-vehicle routing’ research fails to 
address concerns of customers regarding non-trivial loading problems, 
working-time legislation, rush-hour speed modelling and asymmetric 
distance networks). From the scientific perspective, there is a lack of 
advanced meta-heuristic techniques apparent in commercial software, that 
has been attributed in part to the academic community failing to 
demonstrate that their solutions are applicable to the needs of the 
commercial world, and in part to academics failing to impart their 
message the industrial community. 

This workshop aims to address the gap between current state-of-the art 
optimization techniques emerging in the academic literature and the real 
concerns of those in industry who would like to use the techniques by 
providing an opportunity for researchers to discuss: 

Development of new benchmark sets of data that include relevant 
real-world constraints to demonstrate relevance of academic techniques. 
Metrics by which problems should be evaluated relevant to practitioners. 
Methods for comparing algorithms that address concerns of practitioners. 
Discussion of real-world problem constraints. 

Papers are likely (but not limited to) to address one of the following : 

Generation of new problems 
- Creation of standards and metrics for evaluating and comparing algorithms 
- Frameworks for comparing algorithms. 
- Real-world constraints in a variety of domains. 
- Practical applications of optimization algorithms 

Workshop Chairs 

Prof Emma Hart is an experienced researcher in the area of optmisation 
and hyper-heuristics, being one of the original authors of the term 
’hyper-heuristics’ in the early 2000s. She has published widely on 
the use of evolutionary algorithms applied to scheduling and timetabling 
problems, as well as in hyper-heuristics applied to a variety of  domains. 
She is currently the holder of a large national research grant, 
investigating the use of hyper-heuristics that continuously learn and 
improve over time, which has collaborators from the logistics and 
forestry industry. 

Kevin Sim is a researcher who works in the field of hyper-heuristics and 
problem-classification algorithms, and works with Prof. Hart on a large 
national grant on hyper-heuristics. He is also co-chair of a workshop at 
Evo-Star 2013 called EvoIndustry.
