Last July, the Universitat Pompeu Fabra host the 12th edition of the Metaheuristics International Conference (MIC 2017) and the XII Metaheurísticas, Algoritmos Evolutivos y Bioinspirados (MAEB 2017) ( 4th to 7th July 2017).
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 provided 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.
MAEB 2017 is the annually Spanish more relevant congress in Metaheuristics and Bio-inspired Algorithms.
Helena Ramalhinho, together with Angel Juan, Abraham Duarte, Ana Viana and Belén Mélian were the chairs of the conferences. More than 300 researchers from all over the world assist to the conference.
