[DMANET] IFORS 2017 streams on Data Science meets Optimisation, and also Hyperheuristics

Dear all,

A quick last-minute reminder of a few streams/sessions at IFORS that could be of interest to anyone interested in
the overlap and intersections of statistics/machine learning (within
data science) and optimisation and metaheuristics.

Note, the conference talks place in Quebec City in Canada during July
17-21, 2017.

In particular, abstracts are welcome for work that either

- uses machine learning / statistics to improve optimisation techniques
using a variety of ideas that can appear under many different names
including adaptive or reactive search, hyper-heuristics, data analytics
for search, etc.


- uses advanced optimisation/search techniques such as mathematical
programming or heuristics/metaheuristics in order to increase the
performance of methods to solve machine-learning or statistics problems.

Note that the abstract submission process is very lightweight just
requiring a short abstract, not an extended abstract.

Please consider to submit an abstract to one of the following streams,
using the IFORS submission site:

Stream: Data Science meets Optimisation Data Science meets Optimisation
At the IFORS website use the code 7eb193df

Stream: Hyperheuristics (which is intended to include any
general-method method to accelerate metaheuristics and not only the
specific meaning of hyperheuristics).
At the IFORS website use the code d47b063f
