I’m putting together a track at the upcoming 10th Metaheuristics International Conference. The conference will be held August 5-8, 2013 in Singapore. The conference website is http://www2.sis.smu.edu.sg/mic2013/
The topic of the Track is Metaheuristics and Optimization/Constraint Programming. There has been a lot of work recently on combining metaheuristics with exact methods. I think it is a very exciting area: faster optimization codes and speedier computers make it easier to use optimization or constraint programming as part of a metaheuristic approach to problems.
If you have some work that you would like to present at the conference, I encourage you to submit that work to the track. Submissions can be in the form of 10 page full papers or 3 page extended abstracts. All submissions are thoroughly reviewed. More information on submission is at the general Call for Papers: http://www2.sis.smu.edu.sg/mic2013/call_for_papers.htm
You will submit your paper through ConfTool at https://www.conftool.net/mic2013/ Note that you will have the opportunity to select the track “Special Session on Meta-Heuristics and Constraint Programming” (or similar: the track is not limited to CP).
The submission deadline is February 28. Please let me know if you have any questions.
