Biography

Professor Rayward-Smith moved to UEA some thirty years ago, and is a Fellow of the BCS, of the OR Society and of the IMA, a Chartered Engineer and a Chartered Mathematician. He is the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Mathematical Modelling and Algorithms (JMMA) published by Springer.

Editorial Work:

  • Editor-in-chief of Journal of Mathematical Modelling and Algorithms
  • Board member of Journal of Scheduling
  • Board member of Journal of Applied Intelligence.

Academic Background

Vic gained an M.A. degree in Mathematics from Oxford and then a Diploma in Machine Intelligence from Edinburgh followed by a Ph.D. in formal language theory from London.

Some of this time has been spent on sabbatical, at UCSB and UCB in America, at SFU in Canada and at Monash in Australia.

He is on the programme committee of a number of conferences including IDEAL, GECCO and IEEE CEC, IEA/AIE

Key Research Interests

Vic Rayward-Smith is part of the Data Mining, Machine Learning and Statistics Laboratory 

He comes from a mathematical background and has always enjoyed the more theoretical aspects of computing. However, his research is focussed on developing new models and algorithmic approaches for solving important practical problems. He has mostly been concerned with the application of new techniques to the solution of problems in scheduling and in machine learning. Most recently, he has been addressing problems arising from clustering, from aggregated data and from unreliable data as well as undertaking several medical data mining projects.
