      Problem Solving using Evolutionary Computation - 2004

      An Intensive 5-Day Course

      The Centre of Excellence for Research in Computational Intelligence and
      Applications (CERCIA) will be running an intensive 5-Day course on
      Evolutionary Computation from Monday, 19th of Janauary to Friday, 23rd of
      Janauary, 2004.

      This course assumes no background in Evolutionary Computation and builds a
      rigorous foundation from scratch. The course is especially useful for those
      who are working in Industry and wish to get practical skills that will help
      them solve complex problems to which no satisfactory solutions exist. The
      participant is introduced to Evolutionary Computation and is coached by our
      team of experts to solve problems like: -
      ++Parameter Tuning and Optimisation
      ++Shortest Path finding
      ++Solving problems with Multiple Objectives
      ++Creative Design

      CERCIA is one of the world's leading centres for research in Computational
      Intelligence (CI) technologies and regularly organises short courses for
      students and those working in industry. These courses are taught by experts
      in their respective fields and are designed to either introduce or impart
      advanced knowledge in the field of CI.

      Course Details
      This course does not assume any previous knowledge in Evolutionary
      Computation. Some programming experience in an object oriented programming
      language (like JAVA) is recommended but not necessary. The course begins
      with a thorough introduction to the field of Evolutionary Computation (EC)
      and on each subsequent day covers one application area of the technique. The
      course format places great emphasis on learning-by-doing and on each day
      lecture sessions are followed by tutored lab session in which the student
      solves practical problems using EC techniques covered earlier in the day. We
      strongly feel that on completion of this course the student will be able to
      apply EC techniques to practical problems. For a detailed time-table of the
      course please see overleaf.

      The cost of the course is £650 (this includes Lunch and Coffee). There are
      20 full scholarships (available on a first-come first-serve basis) and
      several partial scholarships available to West-Midlands residents and
      businesses. Partial scholarships are also available for full-time students
      and academics. Please visit the CERCIA website (www.cercia.ac.uk) or contact
      CERCIA for further details.
