Kenneth and Daniel were part of the organizing committee of EPS2016: a PhD school in matheuristics that took place in Lorient (France) in April, 2016. They also coordinated the lab sessions, in which the students had the chance to develop optimization methods to
Complex problems are entangled with our everyday life, usually without us noticing. We rely on fast-speed internet, where each package traverses several routers around the globe. We use transportation systems and rely on train and airport providers to reliably schedule
On March 17th and 18th, the EU/MEeeting 2016 took place at the University of Antwerp. The workshop was a great success, with many interesting talks and long discussions about the design and analysis of metaheuristics. Below, you can find the presentations of Florian, Renata and Daniel. F.

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
