PGR Student Poster Day

Here is the link of the poster (version1) that I produced for the PGR Student Poster Day. This event was held 23rd August 2012 at Heriot-Watt University as a way to 2nd and 3rd year student can present internally their research topic.

The content of the poster is related to my current research in urban growth and the optimisation of green areas planning using an hybrid version of a genetic algorithm. The size is a A2. Here you can see a quality reduced version of the poster, please follow the previous link if you want to see or download the original version.

Due to it was a requirement to design the poster in a A1 format, I created a second version of the poster that it is stored here. Again here it show a quality-reduced version:

I upload both posters to Figshare. Figshare is a web site focuses on sharing scientific resources.

Unfortunately, even if I made a proof-printing in several A4 pages with my personal printer, when I collected my poster from the printing services all the colours were darker and I had problems to distinguish the different sections. If somebody uses the design of the poster as a source of inspiration I definitely recommend to widen the range of grey tones to avoid this problem.

My MSc Poster for VRP and fast heuristics

Published on: Apr 5, 2012

I want to upload some material about my MSc Dissertation. Here, I let you the poster made by the poster exhibition held in Heriot-Watt University in August 2009. The subject of my dissertation was the Vehicle Routing Problem and, in this project, I have the opportunity to create a new fast metaheuristic to cope with this NP-hard problem and then I compared the results achieved with a Genetic Algorithm approach. In some weeks, I would like to upload the code.
