The COST Action CA15140 ‘Improving Applicability of Nature-Inspired Optimisation by Joining Theory and Practice (ImAppNIO)’ is organising a training school on the theme of the COST Action: bridging the gap between theory and practice and making nature-inspired search and optimisation heuristics (like for example evolutionary algorithms) more applicable. Participation is free but the number of participants is limited. Application deadline is the 1st of September 2017. Continue reading

Here is the link to this year’s useR! talk about Sequential Parameter Optimization presented by Sebastian Krey:
The Revised Sequential Parameter Optimization Toolbox
Last week the useR! 2017 conference took place in Brussels, Belgium. The annual useR! conference is the main meeting of the international R user and developer community. Over 1000 participants came to listen to a broad spectrum of talks ranging from technical and R-related computing issues to general statistical topics of current interest .
Here you find some impressions from the conference: Pictures
The SPOTSeven team gave two presentations:
- How to deal with Missing Data in Time Series and the imputeTS package – Steffen Moritz
- The Revised Sequential Parameter Optimization Toolbox – Sebastian Krey
Here you can find the slides:
The talks enjoyed great participation and resulted in lots of interesting discussions afterwards.
