The IEEE Swarm Intelligence Symposium 2008 will held this year in Saint Louis (Missouri, USA) from September 21 to 23. The call for paper has been recently published and can be downloaded here. They invite authors to submit original and unpublished work related to swarm intelligence, including research, theory, development, and applications. Areas of focus include particle swarm optimization, ant colony swarms, cultural algorithms, foraging techniques, and other swarm-related topics.
Authors are invited to submit their original and unpublished work in the areas including, but not limited to, the following:
Modeling and analysis of particle swarm optimization, Ant colony optimization, culture algorithm, foraging algorithm.
Optimization techniques in dynamic, multi-objective, constrained environment. Modeling and analysis of biological collective systems such as social insects colonies, school and flocking vertebrates.
Distributed computing, machine learning, data mining, data clustering, graph partitioning, and decision making based on swarm intelligence principles.
Theory and applications of swarm intelligence principles to real world problems including control systems, evolvable hardware, power system, sensor networks, bioinformatics, business and finance, supply-chain management, planning and operations in industrial systems, transportation systems, and others areas.
