Techniques based on metaheuristics and nature-inspired paradigms can provide efficient solutions to a wide variety of problems. Moreover, parallel and distributed metaheuristics can be used to provide more powerful problem solving environments in a variety of fields, ranging, for example, from finance to bio- and health-informatics.This workshop seeks to provide an opportunity for researchers to explore the connection between metaheuristics and the development of solutions to problems that arise in operations research, parallel computing, telecommunications, and many others. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Nature-inspired methods (e.g. ant colonies, GAs, cellular automata, DNA and molecular computing, local search, etc) for problem solving environments.
- Parallel and distributed metaheuristics techniques (algorithms, technologies and tools).
- Applications combining traditional parallel and distributed computing and optimization techniques as well as theoretical issues (convergence, complexity, etc).
- Other algorithms and applications relating the above mentioned research areas.
Prospective authors of original, unpublished high quality research articles are invited to submit their contributions. NIDISC papers should not exceed 10 two-column pages including figures and references in the traditional IEEE format used in IPDPS. Authors can purchase up to two additional pages for camera-ready after acceptance.
Authors should submit a PDF or Word file through the EDAS system: http://edas.info/N21672.
Paper submission indicates the intention of the author to present the paper at the NIDISC 2016 workshop.
Proceedings of the workshops are distributed at the conference and are submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library after the conference.
Selected group of papers from the workshop will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue of an international high-quality journal (to be defined).
In case of questions, please contact the NIDISC workshop organizers: email@example.com
