Why Nature-inspired meta-heuristics?
- It is promising approach to solve hard and realistic optimization problems.
- Interesting computational model inspired by nature.
Our short and long term objectives in meta-heuristics research:
- How different meta-heuristics perform the search? Can we compare different meta-heuristics based on exploration and exploitation measures?
- Comparison of tuning approaches with adaptive and self-adaptive approaches.
- Ranking of meta-heuristics.
- Multi-objective optimization.
- Application of meta-heuristics (e.g., Grammatical Inference, Textile Simulation Model).
