Special Issue on Ant Colony Optimization of Swarm Intelligence
- Special Issue on Ant Colony Optimization of Swarm Intelligence
Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) is one of the most successful techniques
of the wider field of swarm intelligence. The first ACO algorithms
have been proposed more than 15 years ago. Since then, significant
contributions on algorithmic variants, challenging application
problems, and theoretical foundations have been obtained. These have
established ACO as a mature, high-performing metaheuristic for the
solution of difficult optimization problems.
This journal special issue solicits high-quality scientific
contributions on Ant Colony Optimization. While papers on any aspect
of ACO are welcome, of special interest are submissions on
* ACO algorithms for high-impact applications,
* applications of ACO algorithms to real-world problems,
* applications of ACO algorithms to stochastic, dynamic, and
multi-objective optimization problems,
* novel combinations of ACO algorithms with other AI/OR techniques like
constraint programming or mathematical programming,
* theoretical advances on ACO.
All researchers are invited to submit original work on topics relevant
for this special issue of the new journal Swarm Intelligence (http://www.springer.com/11721), which is published by Springer Verlag.
* submission deadline: November 1, 2007
* tentative publication: summer 2008
Authors should submit their manuscripts to the Swarm Intelligence
