Main goal is to move the research
frontier considerably in design of novel integrated methods for solving complex discrete optimization
The expected results are innovative methods combining: exact methods, metaheuristics and
heterogeneous computing. AXIOM has four workplaces (WPs):
- WP1 starts from exact methods and analyzes how these methods can be extended and improved using
- WP2 investigates how exact methods are best utilized within a metaheuristic framework.
- WP3 develops algorithms that fully utilize all processing elements of modern PCs and are flexible and
- WP4 experimental data are collected, analyzed, and synthesized into new knowledge and understanding.
