1 1 Investing the LANCS Resources Edmund Burke Nottingham / Stirling Sanja Petrovic LANCS Initiative Scientific and Industrial Advisory Board November , Cumberland Lodge Automated Scheduling, Optimisation and Planning Group (ASAP) School of Computer Science University of Nottingham

2 2 ASAP Group 7 members of academic staff 8 research fellows 1 industrial research associate 38 PhD students 1 MRes student 1 member of administrative support staff

3 3 LANCS Members 4 Lecturers 1 Transitional Fellow To be appointed: 1 Professor

4 4 Collaboration with Stirling Apply together for research funding in relevant research areas. Common supervision of PhD students and post-doctoral research students.

5 5 EPSRC Programme Grant Application A joint application for £6.7M between UCL, Stirling/Nottingham, Birmingham and York Successfully through to the final stage; interview in February Will address the challenge of adaptivity in search based software engineering by exploring hyper-heuristic methods Close synergy with LANCS 'Systems to Build Systems' cluster Strong support from partner universities Stirling and Nottingham plan to work closely together - joint supervisions - potential funding for both institutions Collaboration with Stirling (cont)

6 6 Sustainability of Research Capacity  How to ensure the sustainability of research capacity beyond the grant support ? MSc course on Operational Research  Unique feature: offered by the School of Computer Science  Syllabus would reflect our expertise in Operational Research, and Computer Science/Artificial Intelligence

7 7 Optimisation Healthcare Heuristic Understanding Systems to Build Systems Transport and Logistics Stochastic Modelling  + Southampton & Lancaster Understanding heuristics for communication of optimisation and simulation with application to A&E staffing  + Cardiff, Staff Rosters Solutions Better understanding of heuristics for nurse rostering  + Southampton, NATS and EUROCONTROL Improvement of airport operations  + Southampton have joined SINTEF in a consortium  Work on the real airport problems at Heathrow  +Optrak Real world vehicle routing problems  + Southampton & Portsmouth cooperative search  + Turkish university (hyper-)heuristics in dynamic environments  Landscape analysis of heuristics for stochastic optimisation problems  Formulation and understanding the landscape and heuristics for timetabling problems  Computer-based search methodologies available at reasonable cost to small organisations Research Between/Within Clusters  +City Hospital Nottingham Radiotherapy planning and scheduling

8 8 Questions ? All comments are very welcome!
