Subject: Book Announcement: Design of Modern Heuristics

Dear Colleagues,

If you teach courses about, or are interested in, Modern Heuristics,
you are probably seeking answers to questions like

* for which types of problems you should use modern heuristics,
* how you can select a modern heuristic that fits well to your problem,
* what are common design elements of modern heuristics,
* how you can categorize different types of modern heuristics,
* what are basic principles for the design of modern heuristics, and
* how you can use problem-specific knowledge for the design of modern
heuristics.

The book "Design of Modern Heuristics: Principles and Application"
gives answers to these problems and teaches you how to design
efficient and effective modern heuristics. With the term modern
heuristics, it denotes improvement heuristics that can be applied to a
wide range of different problems (they are general-purpose methods)
and that use during search both intensification (exploitation) and
diversification (exploration) steps.

Thank you,
Franz Rothlauf

ps: If you, or faculty in your department, may be interested in using
this book for undergraduate or graduate courses, please contact me -
course materials will follow based on interest.


Design of Modern Heuristics: Principles and Application
http://www.springer.com/computer/ai/book/978-3-540-72961-7

Most textbooks on modern heuristics provide the reader with detailed
descriptions of the functionality of single examples like genetic
algorithms, genetic programming, Tabu search, simulated annealing, and
others, but fail on teaching the underlying concepts behind all these
different approaches.

This book focuses on the users' needs and gives answers to three
fundamental questions: First, it tells us for which types of problems
modern heuristics are expected to perform well and which ones should
be left to traditional optimization methods. Second, it teaches us how
we can systematically design the ``right'' modern heuristic for a
particular problem by providing a coherent view on design elements and
working principles. Third, it shows us how we can make us of
problem-specific knowledge for the design of efficient and effective
modern heuristics that solve not only small toy problems but also
perform well on large real-world problems.

The book is written in an easy-to-read style and aimed at students and
practitioners who want to understand modern heuristics and are
interested in a guide to their systematic design and use.

Special issue on "Nature-Inspired Optimization in
Communications and Signal Processing"

Call for Papers

Nature-inspired optimization algorithms have attracted
a lot of attention over the last decades. They are
well-established methods in various research fields,
because they can efficiently solve hard scientific and
engineering problems. These algorithms require only
minor information about the underlying models (objective
functions). Today there are a number of established
algorithms that exhibit a plethora of applications in
almost all major engineering fields. Genetic algorithms,
evolution strategies, evolutionary algorithms, ant colony
optimization, particle swarm optimization, and differential
evolution are some of the most important methods,
counting a huge number of research works. Communications
constitute a research area where nature-inspired algorithms
have offered significant contributions. Specialized variants
of the algorithms have been used for hardware design,
data transmission, network design, routing, scheduling,
and resource allocation, offering solutions with significant
economic and social impact. Signal processing is another
field where nature-inspired algorithms have exhibited
promising results. Image processing, speech processing
and recognition, adaptive filtering, wavelet optimization,
and software synthesis are some of the problems tackled
through nature-inspired optimization algorithms, alone or in
combination with other popular computational intelligence
methodologies.

The present special issue is devoted to recent developments
(both theoretical and applications) of nature-inspired optimization
algorithms in any aspect of communications and signal processing.
Original high-quality papers are solicited on the application of
nature-inspired optimization algorithms. Potential topics include,
but are not limited to:

   * Genetic algorithms
   * Genetic programming
   * Evolution strategies
   * Evolutionary algorithms
   * Evolutionary programming
   * Ant colony optimization
   * Particle swarm optimization
   * Differential evolution
   * Bee colony optimization
   * Bacterial foraging optimization
   * Artificial immune systems
   * Memetic algorithms
   * Cooperative/coevolutionary algorithms
   * DNA computing
   * Hybrid methods
   * Neural networks

Introduction

Evolutionary computation is now an established research field at the
intersection among artificial intelligence, computer science and operations
research. Not only has it grown hugely in its breadth, it has also
developed substantial depth in its theoretical foundations, especially in
the computational time complexity analysis of randomised (meta-)heuristics.
Such enormous growth of evolutionary computation has seen numerous
specialised journals and conferences in evolutionary computation emerging
in the last decade or so. Some of the journals in evolutionary computatio
have been consistent ranked among the top few in artificial intelligence
and computer science. For example, the two year impact factor of IEEE
Transactions on Evolutionary Computation was 4.589 in 2009, which placed it
the 2nd among 130 "Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence" journals, the
3rd among 91
"Computer Science, Theory & Methods" journals, and the 4th among all 426
Computer Science journals. According to the 5 year impact factor (7.621),
IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation was ranked the 2nd, 2nd and
4th, respectively, in the above categories. However, one of the potential
risks of having such specialised journals and conferenes might be the
weakening of important communications and interactions between evolutionary
computation and other fields in computer science and technology (CST) in
general.
This special issue, which is organised in a generic CST journal, will try
to encourage and promote closer interactions and cross-fertilisation
between evolutionary computation and other areas in CST.


Aims and Scopes

The primary aim of this special issue is to publish the very best papers
in evolutionary computation that define the state-of-the-art. Both
theoretical and application papers are welcome. For theoretical papers, we
are looking for major adavances in any aspects related to the foundations
of evolutionary computation. For application paper, we are looking for
innovative and non-trivial applications of evolutionary computation.

All areas and topics related to evolutionary computation will be
considered, including but not limited to evolutionary optimisation,
evolutionary learning, swarm intelligence, adaptive behaviours, collective
intelligence, artificial immune systems, multi-objective optimisation and
learning, constraint handling, etc.


Important Dates

Submission (extended): 14 October 2011
First revision: 30 November 2011
Second revision: 31 January 2011
Final decision: 29 February 2012
Publication: second half of 2012

Although we have planned to have three rounds of rigorous reviews, papers
may be rejected at any round. Rejected paper cannot be re-submitted to the
special issue.


Submission Procedures

All submissions must be done electronically through JCST's e-submission
system at https://mc03.manuscriptcentral.com/jcst, with a Manuscript Type:
"Special Issue on Evolutionary Computation."

Subject: Special Issue of CIPLS in Production and Logistics Systems

CALL FOR PAPERS
International Journal of Production Economics

SPECIAL ISSUE
“Computational Intelligence in Production and Logistics Systems (CIPLS)”

<http://www.elsevier.com/authored_subject_sections/S04/misc/CFP_IJPE_CIPLS.pdf>


Motivation

In connection with the 2011 IEEE Workshop on Computational
Intelligence in Production and Logistics Systems (CIPLS 2011), which
was held at the IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence in
Paris this April, we would like to announce a call for papers for a
special issue on this theme in the International Journal of Production
Economics (IJPE).


Introduction

The management of production and logistics systems in today’s fierce
competition environment is a difficult task and has become
progressively complex. Major changes in products, processes,
technologies, and societies bring along remarkable challenges and
increasing market demands. Modelling and optimisation of the complex
problems arising in production and logistics systems is of paramount
importance in surviving and achieving competitive gains in
productivity and quality.

Within this context, CIPLS aims to address issues related to the
design, planning, control, and continuous improvement of production
and logistics systems using computational intelligence. In this
special issue, we solicit original, high quality papers presenting
substantial results on the development and implementation of novel
approaches based on exact, heuristic, and/or meta-heuristic
techniques. This includes local search methods (e.g., tabu search,
variable neighborhood search, large neighborhood search, scatter
search, etc.), evolutionary algorithms (e.g., genetic algorithms,
memetic algorithms, etc.), and other nature inspired optimisation
methods (e.g., ant colony optimisation, particle swarm optimisation,
neural algorithms, etc.) as well as hybrid techniques and
hyper-heuristics. Our intention is to cover the full spectrum of
production from aggregate planning to shop-floor execution systems and
modelling, planning and control of logistics systems. We would
particularly like to encourage the submission of studies incorporating
real-world applications.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

· Production planning and control
· Flexible manufacturing systems
· Integrated production system and process design
· Capacity planning
· Lot sizing
· Assembly lines
· Production scheduling
· Inventory control
· Facilities planning and design
· Transport and distribution planning
· Vehicle routing and scheduling
· Multi-modal transport
· Sustainability and green logistics
· Logistics network design
· Decision support systems in production and logistics

Manuscript Preparation and Submission

To prepare their manuscripts, authors are asked to closely follow the
IJPE “Guide for Authors” at
<http://www.elsevier.com/wps/find/journaldescription.cws_home/505647/authorinstructions>
