      Special Session on "Nature Inspired Constrained Optimization" at IEEE WCCI 2014

      IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence
      July 6 - 11, 2014, Beijing International Convention Center, Beijing, China
      http://ieee-cis.org/conference s/cec2014/

      Motivation
      In their original versions, nature-inspired algorithms for optimization such as evolutionary algorithms (EAs) and swarm intelligence algorithms (SIAs) are designed to sample unconstrained search spaces. Therefore, a considerable amount of research has been dedicated to adapt them to deal with constrained search spaces.

      Objective
      The objective of the session is to provide a forum for the presentation of the most recent advances in constrained optimization using different nature-inspired techniques. The session seeks to promote the discussion and presentation of novel works related with (but not limited to) the following issues:
      •       Novel constraint-handling techniques
      •       Novel/adapted search-engines for constrained optimization
      •       Memetic algorithms in constrained search spaces.
      •       Parameter adaptation in constrained optimization
      •       Mixed (discrete-continuous) constrained optimization.
      •       Theoretical analysis and complexity of algorithms in constrained optimization.
      •       Performance evaluation of algorithms in constrained optimization.
      •       Constraint-handling techniques in multi- and many-objective optimization
      •       Dynamic constraint-handling
      •       Surrogate-assisted constrained optimization
      •       Design of difficult and scalable test functions
      •       Applications.
