RWACMO, GECCO 2020 : RWACMO, GECCO 2020: Workshop on Real-world Applications of Continuous and Mixed-integer Optimization, GECCO 2020
Call For Papers
INVITED TALK :
Tapabrata Ray (University of New South Wales, Australia)
Title: “Multidisciplinary Design Optimization: Some Developments and Challenges”
CALL FOR PAPERS:
We invite the submission of original, full papers up to 8 pages to be orally presented at the workshop. Position papers up to 2 pages that present exploratory topics with preliminary results are also welcome. Contributions regarding the algorithmic development of EC/related techniques for continuous/mixed integer optimization with real-world applications in mind are highly welcomed; for example, how the need for solving real-world applications affect and contributes to the process of algorithmic development and design. Implementation aspects and applications on a specific discipline are also highly welcome. It is expected that submissions with a focus on application should also include aspects and knowledge that could be transferred to general audiences. We welcome submissions from diverse fields of study and background (e.g. engineering, computer science, science) in order to encourage multidisciplinary discussion during the workshop.
Within the context of continuous and mixed-integer optimization, the topics for the paper submission include (but are not limited to):
- Real-world applications in a specific field either in academia or industry.
- Algorithmic development for solving real-world applications.
- Design exploration, data mining, machine learning and their synergy with EC/related techniques.
- Applications of multi- and many-objective EC/related techniques in real-world problems.
- Real-world optimization/design under the presence of uncertainties.
- Known issues and challenges in real-world implementations and how to tackle them.
- Review paper on the applications of EC/related techniques in a specific discipline.
- Competitiveness and disadvantages of EC/related techniques compared to other techniques such as gradient-based methods.
- Comparison and performance assessment of various EC/related techniques for solving real-world problems.
