Two papers accepted in conferences
Today, two papers were accepted for two IEEE conferences.
The first one, written in cooperation with Prof. Daniel A. Ashlock (University of Guelph, ON, Canada) and Dr. Paolo Cazzaniga (University of Bergamo, Italy) is titled “Dilation Functions in Global Optimization”. In this paper, we propose an intriguing general-purpose strategy for the semantic transformation of parameters in candidate solutions, able to “dilate” the promising regions of the fitness landscape and simplify the optimization. The paper was accepted for the forthcoming IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC 2019) in Wellington, New Zealand.
The second paper — written in cooperation with Prof. Uzay Kaymak and Caro Fuchs (Technology University of Eindhoven, The Netherlands) and Simone Spolaor (University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy) — is titled “A Swarm Intelligence Approach to Avoid Local Optima in Fuzzy C-means Clustering”. In this paper, we showed that the classic “local” approach used for FCM can be outperformed by using FST-PSO for the optimization (obviously, with the cost of a much larger computational effort). The paper was accepted for the forthcoming IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE 2019) in New Orleans, LA, USA.
