† The author acknowledges support from Universidad Autonoma de Chihuahua and PROMEP in Mexico. ABSTRACT. A hybrid population-based metaheuristic for the space allocation problem in academic institutions is presented that is based upon previous experiments using a range of techniques including hill-climbing, simulated annealing, tabu search and genetic algorithms. The proposed approach incorporates the best characteristics of each technique, makes an automatic selection of the parameters… CONTINUE READING
