Research Themes

We are interested in stochastic search and optimization algorithms, which are often population based and typically derivative-free. We investigate aspects like local convergence, global search properties, noise in the objective function, adaptivity.


We are always interested in good candidates for internship, master thesis, or PhD. Please send an application to Anne DOT Auger AT inria DOT fr. A few internship topics are available here.


Former Activities

We organized the 4th Workshop on Theory of Randomized Search Heuristics ThRaSH'2010 on March 24 and 25, 2010 in Paris. We also co-organized the GECCO workshop on benchmarking of continuous black-box optimization algorithms BBOB 2012 in 2012, 2010 and 2009 and the GECCO workshop entitled Theoretical Aspects of Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimization in 2010.
