4 Preface LION 4, the 4th International Conference on Learning and Intelligent OptimizatioN, was held during January in Venice, Italy. This meeting, which continues the successful series of LION conferences, was aimed at exploring the intersections and uncharted territories between machine learning, artificial intelligence, mathematical programming and algorithms for hard optimization problems. The main purpose of the event was to bring together experts from these areas to discuss new ideas and methods, challenges and opportunities in various application areas, general trends and specific developments. Despite the economical crisis in 2009, which visibly affected the submission numbers of many conferences and workshops, we received an impressive number of 87 submissions. As in previous years, we offered three different paper categories for submission: (1) regular papers on original and unpublished work, (2) short papers on original and unpublished work, and (3) works for oral presentation only. Accepted papers from the first two categories are published in the proceedings. From the 87 submissions that we received, 57 fell into the first category, 22 into the second one, and 8 into the last one. After a thorough reviewing process we accepted 19 regular papers (which amounts to an acceptance rate of 33%) and 11 short papers for publication in the proceedings. Additionally, nine regular papers were accepted as short papers, and all eight submissions from the third category were accepted for presentation. These 47 contributions cover the LION 4 main track as well as the following five special sessions that were organized: LION-S: Learning and Intelligent Optimization in Structured Domains Organizers: Marcello Pelillo, Rota Buló LION-SWOP: Software for Optimization Organizers: Mauro Brunato, Youssef Hamadi, Silvia Poles, Andrea Schaerf LION-CCEC: Crossing the Chasm for Evolutionary Computation Organizers: Gabriela Ochoa, Marc Schoenauer LION-PP: Performance Prediction Organizer: Kate Smith-Miles LION-MOME: Multiobjective Metaheuristics Organizers: David W. Corne, Qingfu Zhang, Dario Landa-Silva, Hui Li The conference program was further enriched by the following tutorials, given by respected scientists in their respective domains. Raffaele Giancarlo from the University of Palermo spoke about Data-Driven Class Discovery in Microarray Data: Algorithmic Paradigms and Fast Heuristics, Ilya Safro from the Argonne National Laboratory (USA) presented a discourse on Multilevel/Multiscale/ Multigrid Algorithms for Optimization Problems, with a Special Focus on Combinatorial Problems, Roberto Battiti from the University of Trento gave a

5 VI Preface tutorial on Reactive Optimization and Intelligent Optimization: From Algorithms to Software, and Holger Hoos from the University of British Columbia (Canada) spoke on Computer-Aided Design of High-Performance Algorithms: Principled Procedures for Building Better Solvers. In addition, the technical program featured two invited talks by David W. Corne from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh (title: Super-Heuristics: Evolving Problem Solvers ) and Xin Yao from the University of Birmingham (title: How Efficient Are Evolutionary Algorithms? ). Finally, we would like to express our sincere thanks to the authors for submitting their work to LION 4, and the 66 members of the Program Committee. The organization of such an event would not be possible without the voluntary work of the Program Committee members. Many thanks go also to the invited speakers and tutorial speakers. Special thanks go to Marcello Pelillo and his team from the University of Ca Foscari (Venice) who dealt with the local organziationof this event: Samuel Rota Buló, Aaron Gennara, Michele Dallachiesa, Paolo Campigotto, Carlo Nicolini, Umut Avci, Stefano Teso. Final thanks go to Franco Mascia, the Web Chair of LION 4. Last but not least, we would also like to acknowledge the contribution of our sponsors: the Associazione Italiana per l Intelligenza Artificiale, IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, Microsoft Research, University Ca Foscari, and University of Trento for their technical co-sponsorship, as well as the industrial sponsor EnginSoft S.P.A.
