META2016: International Conference on Metaheuristics and Nature Inspired Computing

26th October 2016 - 30th October 2016

META is one of the main event focusing on the progress of the area of
metaheuristics and their applications. As in previous editions,
META’2016 will provide an opportunity to the international research
community in metaheuristics to discuss recent research results, to
develop new ideas and collaborations, and to meet old friends and make
new ones in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

META’2016 welcomes presentations that cover any aspects of metaheuristic
research such as new algorithmic developments, high-impact applications,
new research challenges, theoretical developments, implementation
issues, and in-depth experimental studies. META’2016 strives for a
high-quality program that will be completed by a number of invited
talks, tutorials, workshops and special sessions.

The scope of the META’2016 conference includes, but is not limited to:
* Local search, tabu search, simulated annealing, VNS, ILS, …
* Evolutionary algorithms, swarm optimization, scatter search, …
* Emergent nature inspired algorithms: quantum computing,
artificial immune systems, bee colony, DNA computing, …
* Parallel algorithms
* Hybrid methods with machine learning, game theory, mathematical
programming, constraint programming, co-evolutionary, …
* Application to: logistics and transportation, networks,
scheduling, data mining, engineering design, energy, cloud, bio-medical, …
* Theory of metaheuristics, landscape analysis, convergence,
problem difficulty, very large neighbourhoods, …
* Multi-objective optimization, bi-level optimization
* Dynamic optimization, problems with uncertainty, …
* Parameter tuning (static, dynamic, adaptive, self-adaptive)
* Hyper-heuristics, cross-domain metaheuristics
* Software frameworks for metaheuristics and nature inspired computing

Submission of papers:

– Submission of papers via the website

S1) Short papers: Extended abstracts of work-in-progress and
position papers of a maximum of 3 pages.

S2) Long papers: Original research contributions of a maximum of 10

S3) Journal papers: High-quality manuscripts that have recently,
within the last year, been submitted or accepted for journal
publication. For this special case, the submission should have the same
title that the accepted work, the abstract AND the complete reference of
the work.

– Proceedings of the conference will be provided. Selected papers of
type S1 and S2 will be published in a Springer book and international
journals (ISI journals).
– Predefined styles are available on the website
– Proposals for invited sessions, workshops and tutorials: Deadline 15th
