Special Issue On: Swarm Intelligence for Optimization Problems

Submission Due Date
3/30/2018

Introduction
Swarm intelligence is an emerging area of research by employing the natural and artificial systems composed of many individuals such as social behavior of bird flocking, fish schooling, herds of land animals and colonies of ants, wasps and termites to solve optimization and search problems. Swarm Intelligence-based techniques including hybrid metaheuristic algorithms, bat algorithm, discrete cuckoo search, firefly algorithm, particle swarm optimization, and harmony search are much effective compared to early nature inspired algorithms such as the genetic algorithm, simulated annealing, ant colony algorithms and many others. All these algorithms have been applied to diverse test suites of optimization and many real-world problems with great success.

Objective
The main focus of this special issue is to look at the state-of-the-art approaches of the evolutionary computation type and apply them to a range of optimization test suites which present a variety of complexities pertinent to problems arising in real applications.

Recommended Topics
Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the following:

The theoretical analysis and overview of swarm intelligence and swarm intelligence aspects, State-of-the-art-evolutionary computation methods, Novel hybrid metaheuristic algorithms, Latest versions of the bat algorithm, discrete cuckoo search, firefly algorithm, particle swarm optimization, and harmony search approaches, Ant colony algorithms and ensemble strategies of search operators, population sampling techniques and constrained handling strategies with novel strategies of dynamic resource allocation schemes.

Submission Procedure
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit papers for this special theme issue on Swarm intelligence for optimization problems on or before March 30, 2018.
