Professor Gillian Dobbie

Introduction
For the last few years, biologically inspired data mining techniques have been intensively used in different data mining applications such as data clustering, classification, association rule mining, sequential pattern mining, outlier detection, feature selection and bioinformatics. The techniques include Neural Networks, Evolutionary Computation, Fuzzy Systems, Genetic Algorithms, Ant Colony Optimization, Particle Swarm Optimization, Artificial Immune Systems, Culture Algorithms, Social evolution, and Artificial Bee Colony Optimization. A huge increase in the number of papers published in the area has been observed in the last decade. Most of these techniques use optimization to speed up the data mining process and improve the quality of patterns mined from the data. The aim of this special issue is to highlight the current research related to biologically inspired techniques in different data mining domains and their implementation in real life data mining problems. The special issue will provide a platform to the researcher from computational intelligence and evolutionary computation and other biologically inspired techniques to get feedback on their work from other data mining perspective such as statistical data mining, AI and machine learning based data mining.

Objective
The aim of this special issue is to bring together work from Biologically-Inspired techniques and its application in data mining. This will be the first journal which specifically deals with these techniques for data mining.

Special Issue On: Applied Evolutionary Computation and Computational Intelligence

Submission Due Date
12/15/2017

Guest Editors
Dr. Ankur Dumka
Dr. H. L. Mandoria

Introduction
Computational intelligence focused on combinatorial optimization problems, evolutionary computation is associated with systems that use computational models of evolutionary processes as the key elements in design and implementation, i.e. computational techniques which are based to some degree on the evolution of biological life in the natural world. A number of evolutionary computational models have been proposed, including evolutionary algorithms, genetic algorithms, the evolution strategy, evolutionary programming and swarm intelligence. These techniques form the basis of several disciplines such as artificial life and evolutionary robotics.

This journal intends to be a major forum for scientists, engineers and practitioners interested in the study, analysis, design, modeling and implementation and solving of optimization problems, both theoretically and in a broad range of application fields. The journal also aims to foster hybrid approaches within evolutionary computation and also involving fuzzy computation and neural computation.

Objective
This special journal issue focuses on models, infrastructures, systems and algorithms for evolutionary computation and computational Intelligence. Since evolutionary computation and computational Intelligence became a hot topic in the community, many techniques have been proposed. In this special issue, we seek for solutions and applications for evolutionary computation and computational Intelligence in high novelty, as well as new visions of evolutionary computation and computational Intelligence. The major goals of this special issue are to provide a snapshot of state-of-the-art techniques and applications for evolutionary computation and computational Intelligence.
