Techniques based on metaheuristics and nature-inspired paradigms can
provide efficient solutions to a wide variety of problems. Moreover,
parallel and distributed metaheuristics can be used to provide more
powerful problem solving environments in a variety of fields, ranging,
for example, from finance to bio- and health-informatics. This workshop
seeks to provide an opportunity for researchers to explore the
connection between metaheuristics and the development of solutions to
problems that arise in operations research, parallel computing,
telecommunications, and many others. Topics of interest include, but
are not limited to:
- Nature-inspired methods (e.g. ant colonies, GAs, cellular
automata, DNA and molecular computing, local search, etc) for problem
- Parallel and distributed metaheuristics techniques (algorithms, technologies and tools).
- Applications combining traditional parallel and distributed
computing and optimization techniques as well as theoretical issues
(convergence, complexity, etc).
- Other algorithms and applications relating the above mentioned research areas.
Prospective authors of high quality research contributions are invited to submit an electronic copy of their manuscript not exceeding 8 two-column pages including figures and references in the traditional IEEE format used in IPDPS. Please, use Postscript or PDF when possible.
In your email, please indicate paper title, author(s), and the corresponding author.
Selected papers will be invited to an international scholarly journal.
Papers should be submitted to:
