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 thesis addresses various versions of the memory allocation problem. For each studied version, the number of constraints in the problem increases and thus the complexity and difficulty to solve it. The number of memory banks, the bank capacities, the size and number of access to data structures, and the conflicting data structures at each time interval are the main constraints presented in the memory allocation problem. In this work, besides some theoretical properties and results, we present ILP formulations and some metaheuristics implemented for each version of the memory allocation problem. Also, we assess the effectiveness of our metaheuristics with the exact methods and other literature metaheuristics with the aim of highlighting what makes the success of metaheuristics for this problem.

CFP - Mini Symposium Meta-heuristic Approaches in Design and Analysis of Structures

E-mail Print PDF

Since designers and managers want to find the “best” solutions, design problems and management decisions are always coupled with optimization. That is why meta-heuristic techniques are being increasingly used for solving structural design and maintenance management problems. Meanwhile, application of meta-heuristic algorithms to analysis problems formed an emerging method in combination with the use of minimum energy principle and the resulting method has proved to be very promising in being an alternative to classical methods. This mini symposium aims to bring together structural designers, managers and structural analists who use meta-heuristic algorithms in their works.

Complex systems are ubiquitous in physics, economics, sociology, biology, computer science, and many other scientific areas. Typically, a complex system is composed of smaller aggregated components, whose interaction and interconnectedness are non-trivial (e.g., interactions can be high-dimensional and non-linear, and/or the connectivity can exhibit non-trivial topological features such as power-law degree distribution, and high clustering coefficient). This leads to emergent properties of the system, not anticipated by its isolated components. Furthermore, when the system behaviour is studied form a temporal perspective, self-organisation patterns typically arise.

Pre-doctoral researcher in safe vehicle routing problems

E-mail Print PDF

At the University of Antwerp (Belgium), there is a vacant position for a pre-doctoral researcher in operations research (vehicle routing) at the Faculty of Applied Economics. The ideal candidate has a good background in operations research ( and mathematics, including good programming skills and a good command of the English language.

The position is meant to conduct research on vehicle routing problems in which safety considerations are important. The work, which involves the implementation and testing of heuristic optimization strategies, will be carried out in close collaboration with Kenneth Sörensen and Johan Springael. The candidate is expected to enroll the university's Ph.D. program and to obtain a Ph.D. at the end of the project. A short project description can be found below. We offer a four-year position (with annual evaluation), a net monthly grant of over 1900 euro, and a stimulating working environment in a lively cosmopolitan city.
