IEEE CIS Task Force on OMBB


My news
  • I have joined the Manchester Business School as a Lecturer.
  • I have become the Chair of the very active and exciting IEEE CIS Task Force on Optimization Methods in Bioinformatics and Bioengineering.
  • Our Task Force is organizing a Special Session on Optimization, Learning, and Decision-Making in Bioinformatics and Bioengineering at CEC 2016 in beautiful Vancouver, Canada. If your research is in this area, interesting and novel, then please consider submitting a paper to our session.
  • Our work on closed-loop optimization of chromatographic operating conditions and multiobjective protein purification process design has been accepted at PPSN XIII.
  • Joshua Knowles and I published a book chapter on Ephemeral Resource Constraints in Optimization in R. Datta and K. Deb (Eds.) Evolutionary Constrained Optimization.
  • Our Task Force, TF-OMBB, is organizing a Special Session on (Multiobjective) Optimization Methods in Bioinformatics and Bioengineering (OMBB) at IEEE SSCI 2014. CALL FOR PAPERS
  • Jürgen Branke (University of Warwick), Suzanne Farid (UCL) and I have been granted an EPSRC-CDT funded PhD studentship focusing on Integrated Capacity Planning and Portfolio Management Tools for Biopharmaceutical Production. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in doing a PhD with us.
  • I have become the Vice-Chair of the new and exciting IEEE CIS Task Force on Optimization Methods in Bioinformatics and Bioengineering.
  • Alongside Jürgen Branke (University of Warwick) and Suzanne Farid (UCL), I am co-supervising MSc student Jeroen Van Lidth De Jeude (University of Warwick) on a project on Dynamic Capacity Planning for Biopharmaceutical Production.
  • Alongside Joshua Knowles (University of Manchester) and Suzanne Farid (UCL), I am co-supervising EPSRC-CDT PhD student Muzher Sharif (University of Manchester) on a project on Portfolio Selection for Biopharmaceutical Production.
  • Our abstract on Process Economics Optimization of Single-Use and Semi-Continuous Chromatography for Fab Manufacture (R. Allmendinger, Tania Chilima, Ana S. Simaria, and Suzanne S. Farid) has been accepted at the ECI Conference on Integrated Continuous Biomanufacturing. More details can be found here.
  • Our abstract on Multiobjective Evolutionary Optimization for Antibody Purification Process Design (R. Allmendinger, Ana S. Simaria, and Suzanne S. Farid) has been accepted at the 2nd Annual EPSRC Manufacturing the Future Conference. More details can be found here.
  • Winner of the Seperations Engineering & Transfer Process poster price at the ChemEngDay UK. The poster entitled Generating cause-and-effect models for chromatographic protein purification (S. Gerontas, S. Kong, R. Allmendinger, S. Liu, S. S. Farid, L. Papageorgiou, and N. J. Titchener-Hooker) has been presented by Spyros Gerontas, and can be downloaded here. More details can be found here.
  • Our abstract on Handling Computational Variability in the Evaluation of Objectives: Ideas and Prospects (R. Allmendinger, J. Handl, A. Lavygina, and J. Knowles) has been accepted at the 22nd International Conference on Multiple Criteria Decision Making (MCDM2013). More details can be found here.
  • Our abstract on Automating Mechanism Design using Evolutionary Multi-Criteria Optimisation (A. Chandra, R. Allmendinger, and P. Lewis) has been accepted at the 22nd International Conference on Multiple Criteria Decision Making (MCDM2013). More details can be found here.
