Årets vinnare av SAIS exjobbspris utsedd!

Vinnare av SAIS exjobbspris 2012 är:
Rodrigo Ronald Gumucio Escobar, Uppsala Universitet
för examensarbetet med titeln “Constraints on Set Variables for Constraint-based Local Search“.
(Nominerad av: Pierre Flener)

Motiveringen till priset lyder:
“The award goes to Rodrigo Ronald Gumucio Escobar for his thesis entitled “Constraints on Set Variables for Constraint-based Local Search”. The thesis is of unusual technical strength, and it is presented in a report that is thorough and self-contained. The results presented in the thesis advance the state-of-the-art in constraint programming, a core field of Artificial Intelligence, and contribute solutions of high academic standard to both theoretical and practical problems. The thesis contains two main contributions, firstly, he extends the local search solver of the well-known Comet constraint programming system so as to handle set variables, and secondly, he demonstrates that a higher level of modelling often bears no cost: on the contrary, it can improve the solution time or be a necessity in terms of memory.”
