Call for papers: Computational Intelligence and Its Applications in Engineering

A special issue of International Journal of Bio-Inspired Computation

Recent years have seen rapid advances in bio-inspired computational intelligence (BICI) theories and their growing applications in nearly all engineering fields, such as mechanical, electrical, civil, industrial, manufacturing, materials, computer, chemical, and bio-environmental engineering. BICI has been successfully employed in solving real-world engineering problems at both large-scale and small-scale levels, ranging from the design of complex engineering systems, material processing and manufacturing, assembly, signal processing and pattern identification, to system and process optimization, to name but a few.

The goal of this special issue is to provide a vigorous forum and medium for the publication of original high-quality research papers that focus on the development of new bio-inspired computational intelligence algorithms and the real-world applications of BICI in a variety of engineering fields. Papers that focus on a comparison study of multiple BICI algorithms for a particular engineering application are particularly encouraged.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • New neural networks algorithms
  • New evolutionary algorithms
  • New swarm-based algorithms
  • New ant colony optimization algorithms
  • New support vector machine algorithms
  • New BICI analysis tools such as rough sets
  • Applications of BICI in mechanical engineering
  • Applications of BICI in electrical engineering
  • Applications of BICI in civil engineering
  • Applications of BICI in industrial engineering
  • Applications of BICI in manufacturing engineering
  • Applications of BICI in materials engineering
  • Applications of BICI in computer engineering
  • Applications of BICI in chemical engineering
  • Applications of BICI in bio-environmental engineering
Important Dates
Paper submission deadline: 1 September, 2011
Final (revised based on reviewers' comments) paper submission deadline: 16 January, 2012
