MSSANZ Occasional Seminar Series1:  Evolutionary Optimisation Algorithms in Water Resources: current status, research challenges and future directions

Wednesday, 19 November 2014, 4.00pm – 5.15pm

The University of Adelaide, North Terrace campus, Engineering South Building, Room S1122

Presented by : Holger Maier, Graeme Dandy, Aaron Zecchin, Matt Gibbs, Angela Marchi

The development and application of evolutionary algorithms (EAs) and other metaheuristics for the optimisation of water resources systems has been an active research field for over two decades. Research to date has emphasized algorithmic improvements and individual applications in specific areas (e.g. model calibration, water distribution systems, groundwater management, river‐basin planning and management etc.). However, there has been limited synthesis between shared problem traits, common EA challenges, and advances across major applications – which we argue is needed to advance this research field to the point where the undoubted potential of these powerful optimisation methods can be realised in practice.
