Conferences

International Conference on Metaheuristics and Nature Inspired Computing (META 2018)

Organized by El-Ghazali Talbi

Marrakech, 27-31 October 2018

META is one of the most popular conference focusing in the area of metaheuristics and their applications. As in the previous six editions, META'2018 will provide an opportunity to the international research community in metaheuristics for optimization and machine learning to discuss recent research results, to develop new ideas and collaborations, and to meet researchers from diverse countries in a friendly and excellent atmosphere.

META'2018 welcomes submissions that cover any aspects of metaheuristic research such as new algorithmic design and implementation, real-life and academic applications in science and industry, theoretical developments, and experimental analysis. META'2018 strives for a high-quality program completed by a number of tutorials, workshops and special sessions.

International Conference on High-Performance Optimization in Industry (HPOI 2018)

Organized by Bogdan Filipič and Thomas Bartz-Beielstein

Ljubljana, 8 October 2018

HPOI will be part of the International Multi-conference on Information Society (IS 2018). It will be a forum for presenting use cases and exchanging experience among industrial partners already deploying high-performance optimization, as well as stimulating further proliferation of the methodology through promotional activities, and establishing direct collaboration between academia and industry.

HPOI 2018 welcomes papers that cover any aspects of high-performance optimization research and its deployment in industry. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to high-performance computing, single- and multiobjective optimization, evolutionary computation, surrogate modeling, surrogate-based optimization, and industrial applications.

Bioinspired Optimization and their Applications (BIOMA 2018)

Organized by El-Ghazali Talbi, Peter Korošec, and Nouredine Melab

Paris, 16-18 May 2018

BIOMA is one of the main events focusing on the progress of the area of bioinspired optimization methods and their applications. As in the seven previous editions, BIOMA 2018 will provide an opportunity to the international research community in bioinspired optimization to discuss recent research results and to develop new ideas and collaborations in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

BIOMA 2018 welcomes presentations that cover any aspects of bioinspired optimization research such as new algorithmic developments, high-impact applications, new research challenges, theoretical developments, implementation issues, and experimental studies. BIOMA 2018 strives for a high-quality program that will be completed by a number of invited talks and special sessions.

The conference proceedings are published as part of the Springer LNCS (Lectures Notes in Computer Science) series and available HERE.
