“Hurricane Sandy Land Wind Speed and Kriging” is the title of an article on R-bloggers, which describes a real-world application of Kriging.This article was first published on Statistical Research » R Continue reading
A couple of minutes ago, I updated my registration as an independent expert for European research and innovation. Serving as an expert might increase the chances for our own EU applications.
Until now, the SPOTSeven team has successfully applied for several BMBF (Federal Ministry of Education and Research) funded research projects (FIWA, MCIOP, and CIMO).
The 2013 EU/MEeting, the official (14th) meeting of EU/ME, the metaheuristics community, will be in Hamburg, Germany. The dates are:
February 28th – March 1st, 2013.
A workshop webpage has been set up under
Edudemic reports about “Flipped Classrooms“. The general idea behind Flipped Classrooms is that students work at their own pace, receiving lectures at home via online video or podcasts and then devoting class time to more in-depth discussion and traditional “homework.” Creating short videos to illustrate the fundamental ideas presented in my lectures is appreciated by my students. Further tools to enable students to work at their own place are under development.
The slides from the talk “Beyond Particular Problem Instances: How to Create Meaningful and Generalizable Results”, which was presented during the “First Workshop on Applied Meta-Modeling”, are available for download on SPOTSeven’s publication page. Note, the related paper can be downloaded as well.
Prof. Hartmut Westenberger describes the new program “Master of Computer Science with Specialization on Information Systems” at Cologne University of Applied Sciences. The program should start in autumn 2013.
The First Workshop On Applied Meta-Modeling at Cologne University of Applied Sciences, Faculty of Computer Science and Engineering Science in Gummersbach on Friday, 16 November 2012, was a great success. The workshop continues the tradition started at Tilburg University, Netherlands, in 2005. Here are some photos, which reflect the inspiring atmosphere.
The technical report “Beyond Particular Problem Instances: How to Create Meaningful and Generalizable Results” can be downloaded from Cologne Open Science. This report, which was written by Thomas Bartz-Beielstein, illustrates ideas presented during several workshops and tutorials and is based on Marco Chiarandini’s and Yuri Goegebeur’s seminal publication “Mixed models for the analysis of optimization algorithms” .
