Special Session at the CEC2017 – Call for Papers
June 5, 2017 - June 8, 2017
Xin-She Yang, Yuxin Zhao and me invite all of you to submit a paper to the following special session in the CEC2017: Nature-Inspired Computation in Navigation and Vehicle Routing (NICNaVR 2017)
Nature-inspired computation and its relevant algorithms, especially those based on swarm intelligence, have become effective in recent years in solving a diverse range of optimization problems in real-world applications, from engineering optimization to scheduling and from vehicle routing to asymmetric travelling salesman problems. This special session strives to provide a platform for presenting state-of-the-art developments in this area, with an emphasis on the applications in navigation and vehicle routing.
This intended CEC2017 Special Session will enable researchers to discuss theoretical analysis of nature-inspired optimization algorithms, algorithm implementation and case studies in navigation, robotics, vehicle routing, scheduling, engineering optimization and industrial applications.
Scope and Topics:
Interested researchers are invited to submit their unpublished work via the IEEE CEC2017 submission system http://www.cec2017.org/ and the topics include (not limited to):
– Nature-inspired algorithms
– Swarm Intelligence
– Algorithm analysis and implementation
– Algorithm improvement and hybridization
– Navigation and unmanned vehicle automation
– Vehicle routing and scheduling
– Travelling salesman problems
– Case studies in engineering and industrial applications
