SEAL 2010 Papers I liked reading

by Amit

SEAL 2010 is happening at IIT Kanpur, India from the 1st to 4th December, 2010. As someone who was a part of the initial arrangements and was part of the lab hosting it, it is surely going to be legendary what with people like Narendra Karmarkar delivering keynote lectures. Needless to say, it would have been great to be present.

The papers are up on the Springer website and here are some papers I liked reading:

  • Improving Differential Evolution by Altering Steps in EC: This is a very approachable paper where the authors describe their experiments by modifying a standard DE algorithm my incorporating relevant ideas from another EA, G3-PCX. The bigger picture is to move towards unified approach to Evolutionary Computing
  • Bayesian Reliability Analysis under Incomplete Information Using Evolutionary Algorithms
  • Metamodels for Fast Multi-objective Optimization: Trading off Global Exploration and Local Exploitation
  • Generating Sequential Space-Filling Designs Using Genetic Algorithms and Monte Carlo Methods
  • And a paper which I would have surely liked, had I udnerstood the paper fully would be Beyond Convexity: New Perspectives in Computational Optimization

The papers are available online at
