For further information, please email Natalia Hartono.

The International Workshop on the Bees Algorithm and its Applications (BAA) is an interdisciplinary forum for researchers and engineers to share the latest research results, ideas and developments relating to the popular bees-inspired optimisation technique and its applications. The First Workshop, to be held online on 29 September 2021, (8:30am – 3pm GMT), will focus on applications of the Bees Algorithm to Intelligent Production and Manufacturing.

Participants who participate in this free workshop will hear from speakers about their latest work. Their work will be published in a book entitled "Intelligent Production and Manufacturing Optimisation: The Bees Algorithm Approach.”

Participants who attend the workshop will receive a participation certificate.
