Many advances have recently been made in metaheuristic methods, from
theory to applications.

The community of researchers claiming the relevance of their work to
the field of metaheuristics is growing faster and faster, despite the
fact that the term itself has not been precisely defined.

This book discusses theoretical developments in metaheuristics,
cooperative methods combining different approaches, parallel and
distributed metaheuristics for multiobjective optimization, and
real-world applications.

You can get a discount for registering early to this years GECCO. Also
remember that the conference registration also include GECCO's unique 36
tutorials distributed into introductory, advanced, and specialized
techniques and applications. Presented by international high-profile domain
experts in their fields, the tutorials are an invaluable educational
opportunity. Especially for students at all levels, keen to have a head
start on current trends and applications; but also for researchers and
practitioners who will find an effective way to extend and bring to date
their views and knowledge. More information at http://goo.gl/WgWvB.

 Special Issue on Theoretical Foundations of Evolutionary Computation

            IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Aim and Scope

Evolutionary  computation methods such  as evolutionary  algorithms or
ant colony optimization have been successfully applied to a wide range
of  problems.  This   includes  classical  combinatorial  optimization
problems  and many hard  real-world optimization  problems. Real-world
problems are often hard to optimize by traditional methods as they are
non-linear, highly constrained, multi-objective,  and come with a wide
range  of  uncertainties.   Many  different  evolutionary  computation
methods for dealing with complex  problems have been proposed over the
years

In  contrast to  the  successful applications  to extremely  difficult
problems, the  theoretical understanding of these  algorithms lags far
behind the  practical success.  This is unfortunate,  since a rigorous
understanding of  the working  principles of evolutionary  methods can
lead to a better understanding  under which situations a given type of
algorithm  works,  and  provide  design guidelines  for  new  powerful
methods in practice.

For these reasons the last 20  years saw increasing efforts to lay the
theoretical  foundations of  evolutionary  methods.  The  aim of  this
special  issue   is  to  advance  the   theoretical  understanding  of
evolutionary computation  methods and  bridge theory and  practice. We
solicit novel, high-quality scientific contributions on theoretical or
foundational  aspects   of  evolutionary  computation.   A  successful
exchange between  theory and  practice in evolutionary  computation is
very  desirable  and  papers  bridging  theory  and  practice  are  of
particular    interest.   In    addition   to    strict   mathematical
investigations,  experimental  studies  strengthening the  theoretical
foundations of evolutionary computation methods are very welcome.

Topics

The special issue  will present in a coherent  form novel results from
different sub-areas  of evolutionary computation  theory.  Authors are
encouraged to  submit novel, high-quality research  from any sub-area,
including (but not limited to):

 - Representations
 - Scaling issues
 - Methods for handling constraints
 - Dynamic and stochastic environments
 - Feature-based analysis, fitness landscapes and problem difficulty
 - Co-evolution
 - Evolutionary multi-objective optimization
 - Meta-optimization
 - Human/evolutionary algorithm interactions (human in the loop)
 - Runtime analysis of all types of evolutionary computing techniques
   including evolutionary algorithms, swarm intelligence, memetic
   algorithms and artificial immune systems.

Submission

Manuscripts  must be  prepared according  to the  instructions  of the
"Information  for  Authors"  section  of  the  journal,  available  at
http://ieee-cis.org/pubs/tec/authors/.  Papers  incorrectly  formatted
will be returned without review.

Papers  must  be submitted  through  the  IEEE  TEVC journal  website:
http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tevc-ieee.    Authors   must   clearly
indicate  "Special issue  on Theoretical  Foundations  of Evolutionary
Computation" in the comments  to the Editor-in-Chief. Submitted papers
will  be reviewed by  at least  three reviewers.  The submission  of a
manuscript implies  that it is the authors'  original unpublished work
and is not being submitted for possible publication elsewhere.
