      Call For Paper
      "Autonomous Control for Search Algorithms" (LION-S*EA)
      Special session at the Learning and Intelligent OptimizatioN  conference
      LION 6, Paris, Jan 16-20, 2012
      Organizers: Organizers: Frédéric Lardeux, University of Angers, France,
      Frédéric Saubion , University of Angers, France, Sébastien Verel, University
      of Nice Sophia-Antipolis, France
      This special session is devoted to autonomous control techniques (we use the
      word autonomous in order to gather different existing taxonomies). The general
      purpose of control is to provide more autonomous algorithms whose behaviour is
      dynamically adjusted with regards to the solving goal to achieve.
      Reinforcement leaning techniques may then be used to benefit from the
      information collected along the search. Of course many other control methods
      can be considered, including the use of external knowledge. Let us note that
      the notion of parameter includes classic numerical parameters that manage the
      general behaviour of the algorithms but also structural parameters that are
      more related to the design of the algorithm itself, such as basic search
      heuristics or neighbourhood functions.
      This  session would address the following topics (not limited to):
          * Adaptive parameter control in evolutionary algorithms
          * Reactive prohibition mechanisms in local search algorithms
          * Adaptive multiple neighbourhood management in local search algorithms
          * Heuristics control in hyper heuristics based algorithms
          * Control for parallel and distributed algorithms (parallel constraint
      solvers, island models...)
          * Dynamic heuristics selection in tree based constraint solvers
      Submission Details
      Authors should submit papers via the online submission system of LION 6.
      Authors are advised to be careful when selecting a paper category.
      The paper categories for LION-S*EA are
      (1) LION-S*EA: Regular Paper, original novel and unpublished work (max. 15
      pages in Springer LNCS format
      (2) LION-S*EA: Short paper an extended abstract of novel work (max. 4 pages in
      Springer LNCS format);
      (3) LION-S*EA: Work for oral presentation only. (in any Latex format, no page
      restriction). For example work already published elsewhere, which is relevant
      and which may solicit fruitful discussion at the conference.
