The Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Applied Metaheuristic Computing (IJAMC) would like to invite you to consider submitting a manuscript for inclusion in this scholarly journal. The following describes the mission, the coverage, and the guidelines for submission to IJAMC.


Mission The mission of International Journal of Applied Metaheuristic Computing (IJAMC) is to publish and disseminate original research on modeling, analysis, and applications in metaheuristic computing. The engineering and business problems the world faces today have become more impenetrable and unstructured, making the design of a satisfactory problem-specific algorithm nontrivial. Alternatively, researchers and practitioners look for generic metaheuristic computing that guides the course of a heuristic to search beyond the local optimality, which impairs the capability of traditional computation methods. Providing a forum for researchers, scientists, practitioners and students who wish to learn, analyze, improve and apply technologies in metaheuristic computing, IJAMC provides insights into all aspects of metaheuristic computing that take full advantage of higher level problem solving without a hassle to design problem-specific operations each time a new application appears.
