Call for papers: "Recent Advances in Evolutionary and Natural Computing: Practice and Applications"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Computational Systems Engineering.

In the present scenario of computing, evolutionary computation is the collective name for a range of problem-solving techniques based on principles of biological evolution, such as natural selection and genetic inheritance. These techniques are being increasingly widely applied to a variety of problems, ranging from practical applications in industry and commerce to leading-edge scientific research. Starting from the genetic algorithm to the trends of the present day development, evolutionary computation has been a keen interest amongst a variety of researchers.

On the other hand, natural computing indicates the computational processes observed in nature, and human-designed computing inspired by nature. When complex natural phenomena are analysed in terms of computational processes, our understanding of both nature and the essence of computation is enhanced. It is an emerging interdisciplinary area in which a range of techniques and methods are studied for dealing with large, complex and dynamic problems.

The main intention of this special issue is to cover both the theory and applications of various evolutionary and natural computing techniques embedded to the diversified spanning fields of neural networks, connectionist system, artificial intelligence, fuzzy systems etc. It aims to provide an intellectual forum for researchers in academia, and scientists and engineers from a wide range of application areas to present their latest research findings in both evolutionary and natural computing areas to identify future challenges in this novel combination of research areas.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 2nd International Conference on Computational Intelligence in Data Mining (ICCIDM 2015), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.

  • Neural computation and ensemble learning
  • Swarm intelligence techniques
  • Artificial immune systems
  • Knowledge discovery and data mining
  • Theory of evolutionary algorithms
