About these proceedings


This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 6th International Workshop on Hybrid Metaheuristics, HM 2009, held in Udine, Italy, in October 2009.

The 12 revised full papers presented together with one invited talk were carefully reviewed and selected from 22 submissions. The papers discuss current issues of combinations of metaheuristics and other solving techniques of universal concern such as novel combinations of components from different metaheuristics, hybridization of metaheuristics and AI/OR techniques, low-level hybridization, high-level hybridization, portfolio techniques, expert systems, cooperative search, automated parameter tuning, empirical and statistical comparison, theoretical aspects of hybridization, parallelization, and software libraries.
