The MIC conference series was established in 1995 and this is its 12th edition. MIC is the main event focusing on the progress of the area of Metaheuristics and their applications. As in previous editions, MIC 2017 will provide an opportunity to the international research community in Metaheuristics to discuss recent research results, to develop new ideas and collaborations, and to meet old and make new friends in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Presentations covering all aspects of Metaheuristic research such as new algorithmic developments, industrial applications, new research challenges, theoretical developments, implementation issues, in-depth experimental studies, hybrid metaheuristics, etc. are welcome.
The MIC 2017 will be organized jointly with the MAEB (Metaheurísticas, Algoritmos Evolutivos y Bioinspirados), the most well known conference in the area of Metaheuristics, Evolutionary and Bio-Inspired Algorithms.
