A Hybrid Column Generation Approach for the Berth Allocation Problem
Abstract. The Berth Allocation Problem (BAP) consists on programming and allocating ships to berthing areas along a quay. The BAP is modeled as a vehicle routing problem and a rece...

Improving Metaheuristic Performance by Evolving a Variable Fitness Function
In this paper we study a complex real world workforce scheduling problem. We apply constructive search and variable neighbourhood search (VNS) metaheuristics and enhance these meth...

Learning Gaussian Graphical Models of Gene Networks with False Discovery Rate Control
In many cases what matters is not whether a false discovery is made or not but the expected proportion of false discoveries among all the discoveries made, i.e. the so-called false...
