META'2018 International Conference on Metaheuristics and Nature Inspired Computing

Venue: Marrakech, Morocco
Speaker: Various
TBC

META is one of the main event focusing on the progress of the area of metaheuristics and their applications. As in previous editions, META’2018 will provide an opportunity to the international research community in metaheuristics to discuss recent research results, to develop new ideas and collaborations, and to meet old friends and make new ones in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

 All selected papers will be published in the conference proceedings.  Following the tradition, selected long papers will be published in a postponed Springer book as in META'2014 and META'2016.


Eleventh International Conference on Swarm Intelligence

Venue: Rome, Italy
Speaker: Various
TBC

Swarm intelligence is the discipline that deals with the study of self-organizing processes both in nature and in artificial systems. Researchers in ethology and animal behavior have proposed a number of models to explain interesting aspects of collective behaviors such as movement coordination, shape-formation or decision making. Recently, algorithms and methods inspired by these models have been proposed to solve difficult problems in many domains. Among these, it is worth mentioning ant colony optimization (ACO) and particle swarm optimization (PSO), focusing respectively on discrete and continuous optimisation problems. Also, Swarm robotics represents another application of techniques derived from swarm intelligence for the design of collaborative multi-robot systems featuring enhanced efficiency, robustness and scalability.

Maths is FUNdamental - The OR Society Volunteer Training

Venue: Leicester, United Kingdom
Speaker: Various
Date: 29 Oct 2018

Think maths is important but not sure how you could promote it?

 Do you want to help inspire school students but not sure where to start?

2018 Winter Simulation Conference

Venue: Gothenberg, Sweden
Speaker: Various
Date: 09 - 12 Dec 2018

Track Coordinators: Navonil Mustafee, Tillal Eldabi and Anatoli Djanatliev

 

The Hybrid Simulation track welcomes submission from authors that have used a combination of analytical approaches, including simulation, with the objective of overcoming the limitations associated with individual methods and techniques. Unlike the conventional M&S approach, where particular techniques have often been applied in isolation, the submissions we wish to attract will have conducted original research in the combined application of multiple methods, with the objective of achieving synergies across individual approaches and, thereby, providing greater insights to problem-solving. More specifically, our track is interested in attracting submissions that have used either:

Hybrid Simulation (HS), which is the combined application of different simulation techniques, e.g., Discrete-Event Simulation, Monte Carlo simulation, System Dynamics, Agent-Based Simulation.

Hybrid Systems Modelling (HSM), which is thecombined application of M&S with methods and techniques from disciplines such as Computer Science/Applied Computing, Business Analytics, Data Science, Operations Research, Systems Engineering, Economics, Humanities and Psychology. Examples include the combined application of qualitative system dynamics, problem structuring methods, forecasting, classical optimisation techniques, process mining, data mining, machine learning, game-theoretic modelling, etc. with computer simulation. The mixed method approach could be applied to different stages of an M&S study (problem formulation, model implementation, V&V, experimentation, etc.).
