Industrial Applications of Metaheuristics

chair: Angel Juan (ajuanp@uoc.edu).
In a smarter world, metaheuristic optimization algorithms are becoming a key tool for many industries around the world that need to increase their efficiency level and become more environmental friendly. This includes service industries (e.g., logistics & transportation, health care, finance and insurance, telecommunications, energy, smart cities, etc.) as well as manufacturing industries (e.g., automotive, robotics, etc.). Metaheuristic algorithms are used today in all these industries to support informed decisions by providing optimal or near-optimal solutions to complex strategical, tactical, and operational problems. Metaheuristics work together with business analytics, business intelligence, and big data in order to provide competitive advantage to your company.

The MIC’17/MAEB’17 Industrial Track will provide an excellent opportunity for all kind of enterprises to interact with the most prominent researchers in the area of metaheuristics optimization and their industrial applications, as well as to explore cooperation opportunities with R&D groups that contribute to make your company more efficient and competitive by optimizing critical processes and systems with the help of intelligent algorithms, operations research, computer science, and analytics.
