Metaphors and metaheuristics – a match made in hell
If you are wondering whether your next heuristic should be based on the principles of Yin and Yang, the FIFA world championship, or the behavior of the blind, naked mole rat, this talk is for you. Examining why the field of metaheuristics is so vulnerable to this kind of “research”, we come to the conclusion that the field’s lax standards might be the culprit. We propose some measures that could be implemented to turn the focus of metaheuristic research back in the right direction.

Future Trends in Logistics: Digital Transformation in Maritime Shipping
Digitalization is pushing the maritime industry beyond its traditional limits and provides many new opportunities to enhance the productivity, efficiency, and sustainability of logistics. Focusing on the crucial and challenging aspects of coordination and collaboration, we present a conceptual game theoretic framework that allows benefits and cost allocations considering inter-, intra-, and meta-organizational perspectives. We further demonstrate how this framework can be used to develop tools and methods for supporting strategic decision making for driving the digital transformation in seaports and addressing new economic issues and problems.
|13:50-14:35||Discussion Workshop on OR Questions|
|14:40-15:10||Coffee & networking|

Commercial Waste Route Planning – When Compactness is more important than distance
Commercial Waste Route planning is the art of creating static collection routes that services customers to 1 to 7 times a week with a number of complex sub challenges:
Besides multiple different objectives that pulls the solution in different direction, the problem is also challenging from the complexity of the business constraints and the size of the problem. And to a certain extend the problem is that we are not looking for the optimal solution but a nice looking solution close to the minimum. There are obviously tonnes of these – but they are hard to find as the success criteria is not a single cost. This talk will include a description of the problem, challenges and our approach for solving it.
