Introduction
Metaheuristics have become more and more useful to solve a variety of optimization problems related to different scientific fields. Many different metaheuristics exist like Genetic Algorithms, Particle Swarm Optimization, Tabu search, Memetic Algorithms, Iterated Local Search, Variable Neighborhood Search, etc. This special issue aims at bringing together outstanding research and developments in the fields of metaheuristics and their applications in Control, Optimization, Decision, Engineering and Information Technologies fields.

Objective
This is a call for papers that make a significant contribution in the field of metaheuristics applications in Control, Optimization, Decision and Information Technology. Our aim is to publish the last new trends and advances in the related topics.

The special issue is open to all researchers of this area. We would like to encourage, in particular, all participants of the CODIT’18 International Conference on Control, Decision and Information Technologies, held in Thessaloniki (Greece),10-13 April 2018 (website: http://codit2018.com/), to submit extended versions of their presented papers. The extended version of papers originally presented at CoDIT’18 must contain about 60-70% new material and the title of the extended version must clearly and unmistakably differ from the title of the article presented at the conference. Author(s) should cite the CoDIT’18 conference paper.

Recommended Topics
Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the applications of metaheuristic in the following areas:
• Control and Automation
• Healthcare Management and Engineering
• Identification of Non-linear Systems
• Information Systems
• Inventory, Logistics and Transportation

Introduction
Recent development in evolutionary algorithms brings a revolution and act as a catalyst in the industrial revolution. The recent advanced algorithms are expected to be the hottest topic in the next few years. There are papers demonstrating architectures, applications, services, experiments and simulations in these areas to support the cases for industrial revolution. Specifically, adaptive control, fractional control, robust control, power system control, control in IoT, control in cloud computing, system dynamics etc. are the emerging paradigms in the recent developments of control systems. For developing and refining new applications, more emphasis is given to these complex systems. In addition, the use of intelligent techniques based on soft computing are of great importance to deal with the complex systems.

Objective
The objective of this special issue is to provide the latest advancements in the highly interdisciplinary research and development area of evolutionary and soft computing techniques in control systems and related applications.
