Call For Papers

Learning and Intelligent OptimizatioN Conference.
LION 5, Jan 17-21, 2011, Rome, Italy

More details and up-to-date information at

The LION conference aims at exploring the intersections between machine learning,
artificial intelligence, mathematical programming and algorithms for hard
optimization problems. The main purpose of the event is to bring together
experts from all these areas to present and discuss new ideas, new methods,
general trends, challenges and opportunities in applications as well as in
research aiming at algorithmic advances. The conference program will consist
of plenary presentations, introductory and advanced tutorials, technical
presentations, and it will give ample time for discussions.

Important Dates

Submission deadline *** October 16, 2010 ***
Notification of acceptance November 27, 2010
Conference January 17-21, 2011
Camera ready for post-proceedings February 18, 2011

Relevant Research Areas

LION 5 solicits contributions dealing with all aspects of learning and intelligent
optimization. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

-Metaheuristics such as tabu search, iterated local search, evolutionary algorithms,
memetic algorithms, ant colony optimization, and particle swarm optimization
-Hybridizations of metaheuristics with other techniques for optimization
-Supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement learning applied to heuristic search
-Reactive search optimization
-Self-adaptive algorithms
-Algorithm portfolios and off-line tuning methods
-Multiscale and multilevel methods
-Algorithms for dynamic, stochastic and multi-objective problems
-Interface(s) between discrete and continuous optimization
-Experimental analysis and modeling of algorithms
-Theoretical foundations
-Parallelization of optimization algorithms
-Memory-based optimization
-Software engineering of learning and intelligent optimization methods.

High-quality scientific contributions to these topics are solicited, in addition to
advanced case studies from interesting, high-impact application areas.
We also welcome proposals for advanced tutorial presentations

Special Sessions

The followign special sessions are already planned
(please email if you are interested
in organizing additional sessions)

"Performance Prediction" (LION-PP)
Organizers: Professor Kate Smith-Miles and Dr. Leo Lopes, Monash University, Australia

"Self-tuning, self-configuring and self-generating evolutionary algorithms" (Self* EAs)
Organizers: Gabriela Ochoa University of Nottingham, UK, and Marc Schoenauer,
INRIA Saclay - Ile-de-France and Microsoft/INRIA joint center, Saclay, France.

Submission Details

LION 5 accepts the following three submission types:

-Long paper: original novel and unpublished work (max. 15 pages in Springer LNCS format);
-Short paper: an extended abstract of novel work (max. 4 pages in Springer LNCS format);
-Work for oral presentation only (in any Latex format, no page restriction).
For example work already published elsewhere, which is relevant and which may solicit
fruitful discussion at the conference.

Each submission will be evaluated according to its relevance to the meeting,
novelty, technical quality, and presentation. Accepted long papers will
appear in the LNCS post-conference proceedings (max 15 pages).
Accepted short papers papers will appear in the LNCS post-conference proceedings (max 4 pages).
The post-conference proceedings will be published as a volume of Springer's
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

Best Paper Award
A best paper award will be presented at the conference.
