      Special Issue on Ant Colony Optimization of Swarm Intelligence


      Scope
      ======

      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.


      Submission
      ===========

      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
      Editorial Manager at http://www.editorialmanager.com/swrm. Please,
      select "Special Issue on Ant Colony Optimization" as the article
      type. When submitting a paper, please send at the same time also an
      email to Thomas Stuetzle (stuetzle nospam ulb.ac.be) with paper title
      and author list to inform about the submission.

      A page with up-to-date information regarding the special issue is
      maintained at http://iridia.ulb.ac.be/~stuetzle/SI_ACO.html.
