Memetic Computing (MC) represents a broad generic framework using the notion of meme(s) as units of information encoded in computational representations for the purpose of problem-solving. In the literature, MC has been successfully manifested as memetic algorithm, where meme has been typically perceived as individual learning procedures, adaptive improvement procedures or local search operators that enhance the capability of population based search algorithms. More recently, novel manifestations of meme in the forms such as knowledge building-block, decision tree, artificial neural works, fuzzy system, graphs, etc., have also been proposed for efficient problem-solving. These meme-inspired algorithms, frameworks and paradigms have demonstrated with considerable success in various real-world applications.
The aim of this special session on memetic computing is to provide a forum for researchers in this field to exchange the latest advances in theories, technologies, and practice of memetic computing.
