Kulturel-Konak presents research on simulation optimization

Dr. Sadan Kulturel-Konak
Dr. Sadan Kulturel-Konak, Associate Professor of Management Information Systems, will present her research titled “Simulation Embedded Particle Swarm Optimization for Reliable Server Assignment” on Monday, February 7, 2011, from 1:00–2:15 p.m. in room 145, Thun Library. This event is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be served.
In this paper, a novel simulation optimization approach is developed based on a Monte Carlo (MC) simulation and embedded into Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) to solve the reliable server assignment problem, which tries to achieve uninterrupted service in telecommunication networks. The experimental results show that the simulation optimization embedded PSO is an effective heuristic method.

This presentation is part of the Engineering Business and Computing Research Interest Group at Penn State Berks, which features faculty who conduct research on a wide variety of topics. Topics are of broad and general interest and are accessible to the non-expert. The next presentation will be on February 28, 2011, when Terry Speicher, Assistant Professor of Engineering, will present “Delegate to China for Engineering Education.”
