Call for Papers: "Intelligent Solutions to Industrial Problems through Swarm Intelligence Algorithms"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Advanced Intelligence Paradigms.

Swarm intelligence is concerned with the design of intelligent multi-agent systems by taking inspiration from the collective behaviour of natural species such bees, ants, flocks of birds or schools of fish. Swarm research essentially falls into three categories:
  • Swarm intelligence algorithms are modified in order to improve their performance in terms of convergence, algorithm efficacy and accuracy.
  • Modifying the algorithm depending on a specific problem.
  • Modifying/designing an algorithm so that it can applied to addressing a wide range of applications.

Swarm intelligence can be applied to a variety of fields in fundamental research, engineering, industries and social sciences.

The main objective of this special issue is to present a collection of high-quality research articles that address the broad challenges and solutions in industrial problems with application aspects of swarm intelligence, and to reflect emerging trends in state-of-the-art algorithms.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Materials acquisition
  • Medical dataset classification
  • Heating system planning
  • Dynamic control
  • Train schedule timetabling
  • Shape optimisation
  • Telecommunication network design
  • Problems from computational biology
  • Software project planning and scheduling
  • Mechanical engineering design problems
  • Resource optimisation (human, financial, machinery)
  • Noise control
  • Optimisation of power flows
  • Sensor network localisation
