This workshop will bring together researchers from different areas of AI and Operations Research in order to discuss various topics in stochastic search techniques.
Workshop topics will include:
The organisers aim to create a forum for sharing and discussing
the latest results as well as fundamental issues in this
highly dynamic and fast growing area of AI research.
This one day workshop is organised by Holger H. Hoos and Thomas Stützle;
it is co-ordinated with the
IJCAI-01 Workshop "Empirical Methods in Artificial Intelligence"
and the IJCAI-01 Tutorial "Stochastic Search Algorithms" (also
organised / presented by Holger H. Hoos and Thomas Stützle).
|Submission deadline:||23 March 2001|
|Notification of acceptance:||9 April 2001|
|Camera-ready copy deadline:||17 April 2001|
|Workshop:||6 August 2001|
We ask authors to submit technical papers either in Postscript or
Every participant is expected to
submit at least a 1-page statement of interest.
Technical papers should address one or more of the workshop topics (see above). The papers should be reasonably concise; we expect that about 4-6 pages in IJCAI conference style will suffice for technical papers, but you may use more space if you need it. Submissions should be printed on 8.5" x 11" or A4 paper with at least 1 inch margins on all sides. The first page of the paper should include the title, a brief abstract, and author names, affiliations, postal addresses, electronic mail addresses, and telephone and fax numbers. We strongly encourage authors to submit papers in IJCAI conference style (formatting instructions are available at http://ijcai.org/data).
To submit a paper, email it (or a URL pointer to it) to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
The number of participants is limited; participants will be selected based on the submitted papers and statements of interest. All participants are expected to contribute to the discussions in the workshop.
Note that all workshop participants are expected to register for the main IJCAI-01 conference
