Call for papers: Special session for WCCI 2014 "Swarm Intelligence for Real-World Engineering Optimization"


Swarm intelligence (SI) is the collective behavior of decentralized, self-organized systems, natural or artificial. Many swarm intelligence based algorithms have been proposed in recent years including particle swarm optimization, artificial bee colony optimization, artificial immune systems, glowworm swarm optimization, intelligent water drops, self-propelled particles, stochastic diffusion search, and etc. The above algorithms have been widely used to solve test functions and benchmark problems and have shown great success. This special session aims to promote the application of the swarm intelligence based algorithms and other meta-heuristics to solving real-world engineering optimization problems.


Topics of interest may cover, but are not limited to
  • Chemical engineering optimization
  • Examination timetabling problem
  • Structural design optimization
  • Multiple sequence alignment 
  • Truss optimization
  • Production scheduling
  • Production planning
  • Construction site layout optimization
  • Multi-objective design optimization 
  • Nonlinear parameter estimation


Papers should be submitted following the instructions at the IEEE WCCI 2014 web site. Please select the main research topic as the Special Session on "Swarm Intelligence for real-world engineering optimization”. Accepted papers will be included and published in the conference proceedings.
Paper submissions:            December 20, 2013
Notification of acceptance:     March 15, 2014
Final paper submission:        April 15, 2014
