F. Hutter and M. Montes de Oca. SLS-DS 2009: Doctoral Symposium on Engineering Stochastic Local Search Algorithms. Technical Report TR/IRIDIA/2009-024, IRIDIA, Université Libre de Bruxelles, Brussels, Belgium, August 2009.

Abstract

The second Doctoral Symposium on Engineering Stochastic Local Search Algorithms (SLS-DS) was held at the Universite Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium on 4 September 2009 integrated into the SLS 2009 Workshop. SLS-DS consists of a series of short presentations followed by a poster session. It thereby provides a forum for doctoral students to present their work, obtain guidance from fellow researchers, and to network with other students at a similar stage in their careers. The symposium exposes students to helpful criticism and fosters discussions related to future career perspectives. The extended abstracts in these proceedings were selected based on relevance, significance, quality, and clarity of presentation. They provide a useful guide to emerging research and new trends in the stochastic local search field. The topics covered include: • Methodological developments for the implementation of SLS algorithms. • Automated procedures for selecting operators and tuning parameters of SLS algorithms • Multi-objective optimization • In-depth experimental studies of SLS algorithms • Studies of problem characteristics
