Call for Papers: Metaheuristics and Swarm Intelligence in Engineering and Industry

A special issue of International Journal of Bio-Inspired Computation

Metaheuristics and swarm intelligence are becoming widely used for optimisation and design in engineering and industrial applications. Metaheuristic algorithms tend to be nature-inspired and more often swarm-based, and have permeated almost every area of engineering and industry.

This special issue will focus on recent advances in metaheuristics and swarm intelligence in engineering and industry.

Suitable topics include but are not limited to:
  • Artificial immune systems
  • Ant algorithms
  • Bee algorithms
  • Cuckoo search
  • Differential evolution
  • Evolutionary algorithms
  • Firefly algorithms
  • Genetic algorithms
  • Harmony search
  • Particle swarm optimisation
  • Simulated annealing
  • Tabu search
Important Dates
Submission deadline: 1 November, 2011
Acceptance notification: 15 December, 2011
Final manuscript submission: 15 January, 2012
