A mathematical model and a metaheuristic approach for a memory allocation problem

by María Soto, André Rossi and Marc Sevaux


Memory allocation in embedded systems is one of the main challenges that electronic designers have to face. This part, rather difficult to handle is often left to the compiler with which automatic rules are applied. Nevertheless, an optimal allocation of data to memory banks may lead to great savings in terms of running time and energy consumption. This paper introduces an exact approach and a vns-based metaheuristic for addressing a memory allocation problem. Numerical experiments have been conducted on real instances from the electronic community and on dimacs instances expanded for our specific problem.

As usual, EU/ME will have a free of charge meeting at the beginning of the  year. This meeting will take place in Lyngby, close to Copenhagen, Denmark. It will be organized by Jesper Larser on May 10-11, 2012. Submission deadline is January 30, 2012.

Metaheuristics for Global Challenges

We are in the world of today faced with a number of challenges, that may at first seem daunting, but are also seen from a research point-of-view highly interesting. We talk about sustainability in a number of situations eg. sustainability in the way we treat resources on the earth. Other challenges could be urbanisation and the pressure it puts on transport, planning of the environment etc. There are many more global challenges, challenges that are basically identical around the world and that to more or less extent reach beyond the boundaries of states and countries. Here metaheuristics (and Operations Research in general) can play an active role in coming up with solutions.

2nd Mini EURO Conference on Variable Neighborhood Search MEC-VNS 2012

E-mail Print PDF

The 2nd Mini EURO Conference dedicated to Variable Neighborhood Search (MEC-VNS) will be held in Herceg Novi (Montenegro) October 4-7, 2012.

The Mini EURO Conferences (MEC) constitute one of the instruments provided by EURO (the Association of European Operational Research societies) to promote the research in its field of interest. Each MEC is an specialized conference focusing a particular promising OR theme of research. These events are organized to allow specialists and practitioners of the selected topic of research to effectively screen papers participate in lively debates.

VNS is a metaheuristic based on systematic changes in the neighbour-rhood structure within a search, for solving optimization problems and related tasks. The main goal of the 2nd MEC-VNS is to provide a stimulating environment in which researchers coming from various scientific fields can share and discuss their knowledge, expertise and ideas related to the VNS Metaheuristic and its applications.
