Name:Hybrid Metaheuristics 2013
Description:HM 2013, the 8th International Workshop on Hybrid Metaheuristics is intended to be an international forum for researchers in the area of design, analysis, and experimental evaluation of metaheuristics. Metaheuristics, such as simulated annealing, evolutionary algorithms, tabu search, ant colony optimization, scatter search and iterated local search, are considered state-of-the-art methods for many problems. In recent years, however, it has become evident that the concentration on a sole metaheuristic is rather restrictive. A skilled combination of concepts from different optimization techniques can provide a more efficient behavior and a higher flexibility when dealing with real-world and large-scale problems. Hybrid Metaheuristics are such techniques for optimization that combine different metaheuristics or integrate AI/OR techniques into metaheuristics. URL of home page (for more information):
