Workshop on Theory and Applications of Metaheuristic Algorithms

October 8, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Workshop on Theory and Applications of Metaheuristic Algorithms as part of the 17th Int. Conference on Computer Aided Systems Theory

Location: Las Palmas, Canary Islands, Spain, February 17-22, 2019
Further information: http://eurocast2019.fulp.ulpgc.es/workshops-and-participation

Deadline for 2-page abstracts: November 15, 2018


Workshop Scope

The workshop invites original work concerning all aspects of metaheuristics and heuristic problem solving, in particular:

  • Theory and applications of metaheuristics such as Evolutionary Algorithms, GRASP, Iterated Greedy, Iterated Local Search, Large Neighborhood Search, Scatter Search, Simulated Annealing, Swarm Algorithms, Tabu Search, and Variable Neighborhood Search
  • New algorithmic developments
  • Hybrid approaches
  • Mathematical programming based approaches, e.g. Matheuristics
  • Constraint programming based approaches
  • Parallel metaheuristics
  • Machine learning and simulation
  • Data driven modeling and prediction
  • Simulation based heuristic optimization
  • Applications of simulation based soft computing
  • Applications in combinatorial optimization, bio-and medical informatics, networks and telecommunications, logistics, scheduling, and transportation


An extended two-pages abstract, including references, with indication
of the workshop (Theory and Applications of Metaheuristic Algorithms)
must be submitted at http://eurocast2019.fulp.ulpgc.es by *November 15, 2018*.
Please follow the author instructions for Springer Lecture Notes on Computer
Science Series (LNCS). Authors will be notified of acceptance
around December 1, 2018.

After the conference full papers will be invited and accepted ones will
be published in a *post-conference volume*. It is anticipated that these
final papers will be published in line with prior Eurocast meetings in
the Springer LNCS Series. These full papers will have to be submitted by
*April 30, 2019*.
