The COST Action CA15140 'Improving Applicability of Nature-Inspired Optimisation by Joining Theory and Practice (ImAppNIO)' is organising a training school on the theme of the COST Action: bridging the gap between theory and practice and making nature-inspired search and optimisation heuristics (like for example evolutionary algorithms) more applicable. Participation is free but the number of participants is limited.

Application deadline is the 1st of September 2017.
We have limited funding available for trainees from participating COST countries (see COST pages for a complete list of all 30 countries). It is expected to be sufficient to pay for accommodation, subsistence and a significant contribution towards the cost of travel. Funding can only be provided for trainees who participate at all days of the training school.
