Benchmark functions vs parameter estimation: new paper accepted on Applied Soft Computing

For some real world problems, common algorithms can outperform the most advanced meta-heuristics.

New paper accepted at IEEE CIBCB 2019

Today our paper “ProCell: Investigating cell proliferation with Swarm Intelligence” was accepted for the forthcoming IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (CIBCB 2019) at Certosa di Pontignano (Siena, Italy). The paper, written in cooperation with the European Institute of Oncology, proposes an extended analysis of our tool ProCell, along with its …

New publication: COST action ‘cHiPSet’ book chapter

A book chapter about the Case Study “Towards Human Cell Simulation” lead by me was published today.

New paper published

A new paper of my group was published today on Lecture Notes on Computer Science. It is a conference paper that we presented at the 2017 International Meeting on Computational Intelligence Methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics. The paper, titled “Estimation of Kinetic Reaction Constants: Exploiting Reboot Strategies to Improve PSO’s Performance”, investigates the impact of …

Two papers accepted in conferences

Today, two papers were accepted for two IEEE conferences.

New paper published on Bioinformatics

A couple of years ago, we started a collaboration with the IEO (Istituto Europeo di Oncologia). Prof. Pelicci and his staff investigate Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), one of the most common hematological malignancies, characterized by high relapse and mortality rates. The guys at IEO are wonderful, brilliant, I learned a lot in these months and …

New PhD course about Global Optimization metaheuristics

A new PhD course about GO metaheuristics — organized by Dr. Luca Manzoni, Dr. Luca Mariot, and me — was given green light by our Department. Confirmed special guest for a seminar: Prof. Leonardo Vanneschi from the Universidade NOVA de Lisboa. The course, that will be probably 20 hours long, will focus on the main …
