Subject: KaHiP v2.00, Karlsruhe High Quality Graph Partitioning


We are proud to announce the release of a major update of our graph
partitioning framework KaHiP (Karlsruhe High Quality Graph
Partitioning). KaHiP is a family of high quality graph partitioning
programs. It contains various graph partitioning algorithms that can
be configured to either achieve the best known partitions for many
standard benchmark instances or to be a good tradeoff between
partition quality and running time. Since the last major release we
added:
- ParHIP: distributed memory parallel partitioning techniques designed
to partition hierarchically structured networks such as web graphs
or social networks.
- Mapping Algorithms: new algorithms to map the blocks of a partition
onto a specified processor network in order to minimize overall
communication time.
The software is released under the GPL 2.0 License.

- open source implementation/website: http://algo2.iti.kit.edu/kahip
- github: https://github.com/schulzchristian/KaHIP

We are glad for any comments and error reports (or even bug fixes)
that you send us.

Subject: New Book, Advances in Metaheuristics: Applications in Engineering Systems


Advances in Metaheuristics: Applications in Engineering Systems
provides details on current approaches utilized in engineering
optimization. It gives a comprehensive background on metaheuristic
applications, focusing on main engineering sectors such as energy,
process, and materials. It discusses topics such as algorithmic
enhancements and performance measurement approaches, and provides
insights into the implementation of metaheuristic strategies to
multi-objective optimization problems. With this book, readers can
learn to solve real-world engineering optimization problems
effectively using the appropriate techniques from emerging fields
including evolutionary and swarm intelligence, mathematical
programming, and multi-objective optimization. The ten chapters of
this book are divided into three parts. The first part discusses three
industrial applications in the energy sector. The second focusses on
process optimization and considers three engineering applications:
optimization of a three-phase separator, process plant, and a
pre-treatment process. The third and final part of this book covers
industrial applications in material engineering, with a particular
focus on sand mould-systems. It also includes discussions on the
potential improvement of algorithmic characteristics via strategic
algorithmic enhancements. This book helps fill the existing gap in
literature on the implementation of metaheuristics in engineering
applications and real-world engineering systems. It will be an
important resource for engineers and decision-makers selecting and
implementing metaheuristics to solve specific engineering problems.

Subject: Octave Conference, Switzerland, Mar 2017


We are happy to announce the upcoming Octave Conference 2017 to be
held at CERN [1], near Geneva, Switzerland, from March 20th until
March 22nd. Octave [2] is a fundamental tool of analysis and research
for hundreds of CERN scientists and, like CERN, promotes values of
openness, cooperation, diversity, quality and commitment.

The three-day event will be an opportunity for sharing experiences,
planning the future of Octave and promoting its use among the CERN
scientific community and beyond. There will two open sessions in the
CERN Main Auditorium, on Monday and Tuesday, showcasing Octave and
some interesting and successful Octave stories.

We are working out the details of the programme, and the call for
contributions and abstract is still open. You are all invited to
submit an abstract and present your experience with Octave at the
conference.

We are hopeful that the key members of the Octave development team
will make it, both from oversea and from Europe.

You can find more updated information on the programme in the CERN's
OctConf webpage [3] and in the Octave Wiki page [4]. Please visit the
official page of the conference [3] to register your attendance. Early
registrations are preferable to help us on the logistics side. Please
contact us with recommendations and if you have any further ideas,
recommendations or particular wishes.
