BIOMA 2016: Prof. Bartz-Beielstein Serves as Keynote Speaker


BIOMA 2016, the 7th International Conference on Bioinspired Optimization Methods and their Applications will be held in Bled, Slovenia, 18-20 May 2016. The purpose of the conference is to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of the latest theoretical and applied results in bioinspired optimization methodology and its applications. Areas of interest include genetic algorithms, evolution strategies, evolutionary programming, genetic programming, ant colony optimization, swarm optimization and related bioinspired methods, and their applications in science, engineering, and business. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, and extended versions of selected papers will be invited for submission to Applied Soft Computing (Elsevier). The conference is organized by the Jožef Stefan Institute and supported by SLAIS. Prof. Bartz-Beielstein accepted to be the conference keynote speaker.
BIOMA 2016 is organized by Jurij Šilc (Chair), Bogdan Filipič, Vesna Koricki Špetič, Peter Korošec, and Vida Vukašinović.

Einladung zum Expertenseminar nach Brüssel

Screen Shot 2015-04-15 at 23.51.30Prof. Bartz-Beielstein wurde vom DAAD als Referent für das in Brüssel stattfindende europäische Expertenseminar “Dual Learning – Combining Practice-Orientated and Theoretical Learning in Higher Education” eingeladen. Im Rahmen dieses Seminars werden ca. 25-30 europäische Experten (insbesondere Vertreter aus den Ministerien der EU Mitgliedstaaten und der Ständigen Vertretungen in Brüssel) zusammenkommen, um sich zu den unterschiedlichen Formen der aus Praxis und Theorie kombinierten Studienprogrammen auszutauschen. Von deutscher Seite sollen sowohl die klassischen dualen Studiengänge, als auch Studiengänge, die in anderer strukturierter Form Praxis und Theorie miteinander verbinden, vorgestellt werden.
Von besonderem Interesse ist dabei die enge Verzahnung von Theorie und Praxis in den Studiengängen, zu der auch der Forschungsschwerpunkt CIplus durch seine vielfältigen Industriekontakte beiträgt. Ein Ziel des Seminar besteht darin, interessierten Partnerländern aufzuzeigen, welche unterschiedlichen Wege in der Einführung praxisorientierter Hochschulbildung gegangen werden können.
