Prof. Bartz-Beielstein was invited as a COST Action trainer to give a lecture at Sorbonne Universités – Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC).
The COST Action CA15140 “Improving Applicability of Nature-Inspired Optimisation by Joining Theory and Practice (ImAppNIO)” organized a training school on the theme of the COST Action: bridging the gap between theory and practice and making nature-inspired search and optimization heuristics (like for example evolutionary algorithms) more applicable.Prof. Bartz-Beielstein talked about “Statistical Analysis of Algorithms for the Optimization of Real-World Problems”. Frederik Rehbach, who is also a member of the SPOTSeven lab, presented results from his current work about the Electrostatic Percipitator (ESP) problem. After an introduction to sequential parameter optimization (SPO) and to the ESP problem in the morning, the PhD students worked in teams. They learned basic principles of the sequential parameter optimization approach and applied the toolbox SPOT.
Here are some pictures from the training school.
