National Workshop: Swarm Intelligence - Theory and Applications 2012

The School of Electrical Sciences organized a national workshop on “Swarm Intelligence: Theory and Applications” from 25th  to 27th May 2012. The workshop was attended by 100 participants from all over the country. Prof. G. Panda, Head, School of Electrical Sciences was the workshop coordinator and chief resource person. The major topics covered during the workshop are genetic algorithm, particle swarm optimization, bacteria foraging optimization, cat swarm optimization, differential evolution and multi-objective optimization. Simulation based experiments for various applications were carried out in the laboratory for in-depth understanding of the theory taught during the workshop. The three days workshop was highly successful as evident from the feedback obtained from the participants.
