Application and Analysis of Metaheuristic Algorithms for Simulation-based Optimization with HeuristicLab
In this seminar we demonstrate how HeuristicLab can be used to solve optimization problems implemented in different applications. HeuristicLab includes a generic protocol that facilitates data exchange with arbitrary applications as well as customized interfaces that exchange data with specific programs. In the seminar a brief overview of HeuristicLab and its concepts will be given after which several concrete use cases will be presented and demonstrated.
Participants will learn different ways to connect arbitrary applications to HeuristicLab such that they can be used for solution evaluation. They will also get to know how to apply metaheuristic optimiza-tion algorithms in HeuristicLab to solve optimization problems defined in HeuristicLab, or in another application.
Andreas Beham received his MSc in computer science in 2007 and his PhD in engineering sciences in 2019, both from Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria. He works as senior researcher at the R&D facility at University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, Hagenberg Campus and is leading several funded research projects. Dr. Beham is co-architect of the open source software environment Heu-risticLab and member of the Heuristic and Evolutionary Algorithms Laboratory (HEAL) research group led by Dr. Affenzeller. He has published more than 80 documents indexed by SCOPUS and applied evolutionary algorithms, metaheuristics, mathematical optimization, data analysis, and sim-ulation-based optimization in industrial research projects. His research interests include applying dynamic optimization problems, algorithm selection, and simulation-based optimization and inno-vization approaches in practical relevant projects.

Best Presentation Award
The Best Presentation Award is given by the ISM 2022 IDW Organizing Board to the most outstanding presentation based on the score of the secret voting by all discussants. Student presentations will be judged on criteria relating to the academic content and professional presentation. Following the judging, the winning student will be presented with their award at the conference and will receive a certificate.
