Evolutionary Computation for Combinatorial Optimisation (ECCO) Group

Evolutionary Computation for Combinatorial Optimisation (ECCO) Group is a sub-group under the Evolutionary Computation Research Group in Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. The group has a wide range of research interests and projects in solving combinatorial optimisation problems using evolutionary computation, including evolutionary vehicle/arc routing, job shop scheduling, cloud resource allocation, Web service composition.
