In the Evolutionary Computation in Practice (ECiP) track, well-known speakers with outstanding reputation in academia and industry present background and insider information on how to establish reliable cooperation with industrial partners. They actually run companies or are involved in cooperations between academia and industry. If you attend, you will learn multiple ways to extend EC practice beyond the approaches found in textbooks. Experts in real-world optimization with decades of experience share their approaches to creating successful projects for real-world clients. Some of what they do is based on sound project management principles, and some is specific to our type of optimization projects. In this session a panel of experts describes a range of techniques you can use to identify, design, manage, and successfully complete an EA project for a client. If you are working in academia and are interested in managing industrial projects, you will receive valuable hints for your own research projects.
