EU/MEeting on Design and Analysis of Metaheuristics March 17-18, 2016 – Antwerp, Belgium The Antwerp Operations Research Group ANT/OR is looking forward to welcome you at the 17th EU/ME workshop on “Design and Analysis of Metaheuristics”. The conference will be
Optimization and horizontal collaboration The freight transportation sector accounts for a major percentage of the global economy. According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, the transportation of goods and services contributed 1156 billion dollars to the US economy
On November 20th, we had a invited speaker for one of the ANT/OR sessions. Bart Braem gave a presentation about the MOSAIC (MOdeling of Systems And Internet Communication) group and the research they carry out. Below, you can find the slides and more
On October 29th, we had a special guest for one of the ANT/OR sessions. Willy Van den Driessche gave a very interesting presentation about software patterns in software engineering and their application in the development of metaheuristics. Below, you can
A set of test instances. 2 different types of nodes (labelled as type 1 or type 2), randomly generated around cluster centers, density is normally distributed. Possible applications: network generation/network optimization for telecommunications networks, electricity networks, water distribution networks, gas
Bagana fragments generated in “Generating structured music for bagana using quality metrics based on Markov models”
Below are the example bagana fragments generated by the VNS described in the paper D. Herremans, S. Weisser, K. Sörensen, and D. Conklin, “Generating structured music for bagana using quality metrics based on markov models,” Expert systems with applications, vol.
Kenneth Sörensen was interviewed as a part of a short clip describing the research carried out at the University of Antwerp. In this opportunity: the port of Antwerp, transportation and logistics.
Instances in the paper “Multi-objective microzone-based vehicle routing for courier companies: From tactical to operational planning”
Distribution companies that serve a very large number of customers, courier companies for example, often partition the geographical region served by a depot into zones. Each zone is assigned to a single vehicle and each vehicle serves a single zone.
Luca Talarico successfully defended his PhD in February 2015. The title of his dissertation is “Secure Vehicle Routing: models and algorithms to increase security and reduce costs in the cash-in-transit sector”. Below, you can find his dissertation, the presentation for his public defense and a set
On this page we present test instances for 3 papers: J. Janssens, L. Talarico, and K. Sörensen, “A hybridised variable neighbourhood tabu search heuristic to increase security in a utility network,” Reliability engineering & system safety, vol. 145, pp. 221-230,
