Acronym COMEX
Name Combinatorial Optimization: Metaheuristics and Exact Methods
Home Page
Description The Combinatorial Optimization: Metaheuristics and EXact methods (COMEX) project is an Inter-university attraction pole funded by BELSPO. The main objectives of this project are:
- Bring together the available Belgian expertise on combinatorial optimization problems, exploit synergies between the partner research groups, and create a network with a sufficient mass to attract young and experienced top-level scientists in Belgium, and further financing for research in the field.
- Train young researchers in the field of combinatorial optimization. These profiles are in high demand, both in academic research centers worldwide and in private organizations.
- Develop new models, algorithmic techniques and implementations for complex, large-scale combinatorial optimization problems.
- Develop new international collaborations with other large teams working in the field of combinatorial optimization.
Keywords Combinatorial Optimization, automatic algorithm configuration, metaheuristics, swarm intelligence
