“Springer Handbook of Computational Intelligence”: E-Book Available at TH Köln

springer Handbook
Springer announces this handbook as follows:
“The Springer Handbook of Computational Intelligence is the first book covering the basics, the state-of-the-art and important applications of the dynamic and rapidly expanding discipline of computational intelligence. This comprehensive handbook makes readers familiar with a broad spectrum of approaches to solve various problems in science and technology. Possible approaches include, for example, those being inspired by biology, living organisms and animate systems. Content is organized in seven parts: foundations; fuzzy logic; rough sets; evolutionary computation; neural networks; swarm intelligence and hybrid computational intelligence systems. Each Part is supervised by its own Part Editor(s) so that high-quality content as well as completeness are assured.”
Frank Neumann, Carsten Witt, Peter Merz, Carlos A. Coello Coello, Thomas Bartz-Beielstein, Oliver Schütze, Jörn Mehnen, and Günther Rail served as part editors for Evolutionary Computation”. Here is the official Springer link: http://www.springer.com/de/book/9783662435045 Continue reading

GECCO 2016: Preliminary version of detailed program available

The preliminary version of the GECCO 2016 detailed program is available. In addition, the
GECCO 2016 Industrial Applications & EC in Practice Day program us available, too.
The GECCO 2016 Industrial Applications & EC in Practice Day is dedicated to the discussion of issues related to practical applications of Evolutionary Computation. During one day (Wednesday July 20, 2016), the most relevant topics related to real-world applications are discussed from various perspectives. It is a great forum for meeting the leading experts in this important field. This day starts with the “Industrial Applications of Metaheuristics” workshop, followed by two “Evolutionary Computation in Practice” sessions. A panel discussion with experts concludes this day. More: http://www.spotseven.de/program-available-industrial-applications-evolutionary-computation-in-practice-day-at-gecco-2016/

 

Multi-fidelity Modeling and Optimization of Biogas Plants

The unformatted and unedited PDF of the article “Multi-fidelity Modeling and Optimization of Biogas Plants” (Martin Zaefferer, Daniel Gaida, Thomas Bartz-Beielstein) is now available online at
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1568494616302575
Highlights of this article include
• Accurate and fast simulation models mandatory for the optimization of biogas plants
• Improve precision of simulation models without increasing the number of evaluations
• Combining results: complex simulator, simple estimation-based model & surrogate model
• Advantages and limitations of multi-fidelity modeling approaches are discussed
