ADELAIDE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA, 25 May 2012 – SolveIT Software Pty Ltd, a leading provider of enterprise software solutions for supply & demand optimisation and predictive modelling, announced today that the company will sponsor the 12th International Conference on Parallel Problem Solving from Nature (PPSN XII) to be held in Taormina, Italy, from 1st to 5th September 2012.

This biennial meeting aims to bring together researchers and practitioners in the field of natural computing. Natural Computing is the study of computational systems which use ideas and get inspiration from natural systems, including biological, ecological, physical, chemical, and social systems. It is a fast-growing interdisciplinary field in which a range of techniques and methods are studied for dealing with large, complex, and dynamic problems with various sources of potential uncertainties.

PPSN XII will be a showcase of a wide range of topics in Natural Computing including, but not restricted to: Evolutionary Computation, Neural Computation, Molecular Computation, Quantum Computation, Artificial Life, Swarm Intelligence, Artificial Ant Systems, Artificial Immune Systems, Self-Organizing Systems, Emergent Behaviours, and Applications to Real-World Problems. PPSN XII will also feature workshops and tutorials covering advanced and fundamental topics in the field of natural computation.

“We are happy to sponsor PPSN, which is one of the best conferences in the areas of Evolutionary Computation and Modern Heuristic Methods,” said Dr. Zbigniew Michalewicz, SolveIT Software’s Chief Scientific Officer and Chairman of the Board, who also gave a keynote talk at the previous edition of PPSN conference in 2010. “SolveIT Software is the world’s largest company with software products based on modern heuristic methods – products that are in daily use in many international corporations to provide decision-support for their large-scale and complex operations. Sponsorship of PPSN will provide additional visibility for our research and development activities among the participants of the conference.”
