IESM2015 - Call for participation
Session on 'Variable Neighborhood Search in Maintenance and Manufacturing'
- Nenad Mladenovic, University of Valenciennes,
- Emilio Carrizosa, University of Seville,
- Rita Macedo, University of Valenciennes.
Variable Neighborhood Search (VNS) is a metaheuristic for solving combinatorial and global optimization problems. It is based on a systematic change of the neighborhood structures within a search. The main goal of this session or track is
to present applied aspects of Variable Neighborhood Search in Industrial engineering and System Sciences with special attention to Maintenance problems. Researches coming from various scientific fields can contribute their knowledge, expertise, and ideas related to the VNS metaheuristic and its applications.
