ThRaSH'2012 - Call for abstracts and participation

6th Workshop on Theory of Randomized Search Heuristics (ThRaSH'2012)

May 2-3, 2012, Lille/Villeneuve d'Ascq, France

Deadline for abstract submission: March 16, 2012
Registration deadline: April 6, 2012

Following the workshops in Wroclaw, Dortmund, Birmingham, Paris, and
Copenhagen, the 6th workshop on Theory of Randomized Search Heuristics
(ThRaSH'2012) will take place in Villeneuve d'Ascq in the north of France

on the 2nd and 3rd of May 2012. The purpose of the workshop is to address

questions related to the theory of randomized search heuristics such as
evolutionary algorithms, ant colony optimization, or simulated annealing
for both combinatorial and numerical optimization. The primary focus lies

on discussing recent ideas and detecting challenging topics for future
work, rather than on the presentation of final results.

Researchers working on theoretical aspects of randomized search heuristic
are invited to submit a short abstract (one single page) by email to
"". No registration fee will be charged but participan
are asked to register before the workshop.
