CFP: IEEE SIS 2007, Special Session on Swarm Optimization Algorithms and Applications in Dynamic Environments, Honolulu, Hawaii

Dear Colleges,

New deadline: November 26, 2006

We would like to invite you and your colleagues and students to submit papers to:
Swarm Optimization Algorithms and Applications in Dynamic Environments (SOAADE)

Special session in the IEEE 2007 Swarm Intelligence Symposium
Honolulu, Hawaii April 1-5, 2007
The submission deadline for our special session has extended to November 26, 2006.
Accepted papers will be included in the proceedings of the conference.

Special session theme:
In the real world we usually have to deal with the task of searching for an optimal solution in a dynamic environment. Because of the continual change of both the external environment and parameters, the optimum solution will also change with time. In contrast to the static case, the main goal in dynamic optimization problems is no longer to acquire just the global extreme but to track its orbit through space as closely as possible, or to find a robust solution that operates optimally in the presence of uncertainties. Many algorithms fail when applied to the dynamic problem due to their inability to adapt or self-adapt to the change of the environment. The swarm algorithms have been demonstrated as efficient algorithms for tracking/finding the optimal solution in the dynamic environment and have received an increasing interest over the past several years. The objective of this special session is to bring researchers from academia and industry together to review the latest advances and to explore future directions in the field.

Possible topic areas include, but are certainly not limited to:
· Dynamic fitness functions in Particle Swarm Optimization
· Searching for robust optimal solutions
· Tracking moving optima by swarm algorithms
· Benchmark problems and performance measures
· Adaptation and learning in swarm systems
· Potential effect of dynamic environment
· Theoretical analysis
· Sophisticated real-world applications

Dr. Xiaohui Cui and Dr. Thomas E. Potok (Oak Ridge National Laboratory, USA), Dr. Adel S. Elmaghraby (University of Louisville, USA)

Paper submission deadline: November 26, 2006

Prospective authors are invited to submit draft papers (IEEE style) in PDF-format via email to Dr. Xiaohui Cui ( [email protected] )

Thanks for your attention, and my best regards,

SOAADE organizers
