Two Day FDP on Metaheuristics and its Applications 27th and 28th May 2011

TWO DAY FACULTY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME ON METAHEURISTICS AND ITS APPLICATION ON 27th & 28th May 2011

In many real life applications, there is dire need to find high quality solutions for hard optimization problem in short amount of computational time. Due to the practical importance of such optimization problems in industries,practitioners and researchers have focused on developing methodologies to state those problems. Meta-heuristics are important class of solution techniques that uses constructive procedure,local search and population-based algorithms to effectively solve such hard problems. Genetic Algorithm(GA), Simulated Annealing(SA), Tabu Search(TS), Ant Colony Optimization(ACO), Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) are widely used among them.

The main objectives of this two day faculty development programme (FDP) is to discuss the details and applications of meta-heuristics such as network design in supply chain management, Routing Problem, Distributed Computing and Image Processing.

Topics include:
1. Introduction to Meta-heuristics.
2. General framework of Genetic Algorithm, Stimulated Annealing.
3. Tabu Search, ACO and PSO.
4. Applications of meta-heuristics to optimization problems.
5. Hands-on working session for sample problems.
