Prof. Dr. Tobias Friedrich


Best Paper Award at GECCO

We are proud to announce that the paper Crossover for Cardinality Constrained Optimization which resulted from the Master Project of our students Leon Schiller, Georg Tennigkeit, and Simon Wietheger received the Best Paper Award in the Theory Track. In addition to our students, the paper was also co-written by Tobias Friedrich, Timo Kötzing, Aishwarya Radhakrishnan, and Martin Schirneck who advised the project. The paper investigates how crossover can speed up the optimization process for combinatorial problems whose instances are under a cardinality constraint.

Since 1999, the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO) hosts the latest high-quality results in genetic algorithms, ant colony optimization and swarm intelligence, evolutionary combinatorial optimization and metaheuristics, evolutionary machine learning and many more. The Algorithm Engineering group contributed three papers to this year's edition, which was held from July 9-13, 2022, in a hybrid fashion in Boston, USA.

Congratulations to the authors!
