28 November - 1 December 2016, 23rd RCRA International Workshop on Experimental Evaluation of Algorithms for Solving Problems with Combinatorial Explosion (RCRA 2016), Genova, Italy

Date: 28 November - 1 December 2016
Location: Genova, Italy
Deadline: 8 September 2016

Many problems in Artificial Intelligence show an exponential explosion of the search space. Although stemming from different research areas in AI, such problems are often addressed with algorithms that have a common goal: the effective exploration of huge state spaces. Many algorithms developed in one research area are applicable to other problems, or can be hybridized with techniques in other areas. Artificial Intelligence tools often exploit or hybridize techniques developed by other research communities, such as Operations Research. In recent years, research in Artificial Intelligence has more and more focused on experimental evaluation of algorithms, the development of suitable methodologies for experimentation and analysis, the study of languages and the implementation of systems for the definition and solution of problems.

Scope of the workshop is fostering the cross-fertilization of ideas stemming from different areas, proposing benchmarks for new challenging problems, comparing models and algorithms from an experimental viewpoint, and, in general, comparing different approaches with respect to efficiency, problem modeling, and ease of development.

Authors are invited to submit either original (full or short) papers, or papers that appear on conference proceedings. Publications showing negative results are welcome, provided that the approach was original and very promising in principle, the experimentation was well-conducted, the results obtained were unforeseeable and gave important hints in the comprehension of the target problem, helping other researchers to avoid unsuccessful paths. Paper submission deadline: September 8th, 2016.
