             abstract = "We introduce a load balancing heuristic, called SABH, for 
                         allocating equipment in satellite modules. The goal is to position 
                         equipment such that the distance between the center of mass 
                         produced by the layout and the center of the module is minimized 
                         and its moment of inertia, relative to the module main axis, is 
                         maximized. A set of experiments compare the performance of the 
                         heuristic per se with its combined use with two nature-inspired 
                         optimization algorithms, Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) and 
                         Multi-Particle Collision Algorithm (MPCA).",
