The International Journal of Applied Evolutionary Computation (IJAEC) covers state-of-the-art interdisciplinary research on emerging areas and of intelligent computation (IC). By providing an academic and scientific forum for exchanging high quality results on innovative topics, trends and research in the field of IC, this journal expands the fields and the depths of its most principal and critical concepts. IJAEC extends existing research findings (theoretical innovations and modeling applications) to provide the highest quality original concepts, hybrid applications, innovative methodologies, and the development trends studies for all audiences. IJAEC publishes three categories of papers: research papers, research notes, and research review. Research papers have significant original research findings. The research must be complete and contribute substantially to knowledge in the field. Research notes comprise research that is complete but not as comprehensive as to meet the criteria of a full research paper. Research reviews are novel, insightful, and carefully crafted articles that conceptualize research areas and synthesize prior research. Research review articles must provide new insights that advance our understanding of the research areas and help in identifying and developing future research directions.

The International Journal of Applied Evolutionary Computation (IJAEC) presents comprehensive interdisciplinary and refereed research on the most emerging and breakthrough areas of Evolutionary Computation (EC) and applications. The journal expands existing research findings (theoretical innovations and modeling applications) to provide the highest quality original concepts, hybrid applications, innovative methodologies, and development trends studies for all audiences. The primary mission of IJAEC is to publish original/state-of-the-art/highest quality research articles in application and convergence of the areas of evolutionary computation and other similar techniques to address real world complexities. Evolutionary computation theory, practice and applications are the essential topics being covered. The journal succeeds in expanding the fields and depths of the most principal and critical concepts forming a more matured research society. The journal is targeted at both academic researchers and practicing EC professionals.

Editor(s)-in-Chief Biography

Wei-Chiang Hong is a professor in the Department of Information Management at the Oriental Institute of Technology, Taiwan. His research interests mainly include computational intelligence (neural networks and evolutionary computation), and application of forecasting technology (ARIMA, support vector regression, and chaos theory), and tourism competitiveness evaluation and management. Professor Hong’s articles have been published in Applied Mathematics and Computation, Applied Mathematical Modelling, Applied Soft Computing, Control and Cybernetics, Decision Support Systems, Electric Power Systems Research, Energy, Energies, Energy Conversion and Management, Energy Policy, European Journal of Operational Research, IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems, International Journal of Electrical Power & Energy Systems, Journal of Systems and Software, Journal of Systems Engineering and Electronics, Journal of Combinatorial Optimization, Mathematical Problems in Engineering, Neural Computing and Applications, Neurocomputing, and Soft Computing among others. Professor Hong is currently on the editorial board of several journals, including International Journal of Applied Evolutionary Computation, Neurocomputing, Applied Soft Computing, Mathematical Problems in Engineering, and Energy Sources Part B: Economics, Planning, and Policy. Professor Hong serves as the program committee of various international conferences including premium ones such as IEEE CEC, IEEE CIS, IEEE ICNSC, IEEE SMC, IEEE CASE, and IEEE SMCia, etc.. In May 2012, his paper had been evaluated as “Top Cited Article 2007-2011” by Elsevier Publisher (Netherlands). In Sep. 2012, once again, his paper had been indexed in ISI Essential Science Indicator database as Highly Cited Papers, in the meanwhile, he also had been awarded as the Model Teacher Award by Taiwan Private Education Association. Professor Hong is a senior member of IIE and IEEE. He is indexed in the list of Who's Who in the World (25th-30th Editions), Who's Who in Asia (2nd Edition), and Who's Who in Science and Engineering (10th and 11th Editions).
