I'm pleased to announce a framework for building Tabu Searches, a popular
meta-heuristic, soon to be available through COIN.

The framework was originally developed at the Air Force Institute of
Technology and has since been developed further into a lightweight, robust
architecture for building a tabu search. It frees you from having to code
the boring, grunt-work portion of tabu search and lets you concentrate on
the fun parts like building an adaptive, reactive, responsive, elusive tabu

I will be at INFORMS in San Antonio in November, presenting this and other
work a colleague and I did. You are all welcome to attend our session Sunday
morning, 10:15-11:45. See the INFORMS site for more information:

In the meantime, some information about the tabu search framework is
available at http://www.crosswinds.net/~rharder/tabusearch/.
