    Special Issue on Genetic Algorithm and Evolutionary Computation  


    In computer science and operations research, a genetic algorithm (GA) is a metaheuristic inspired by the process of natural selection that belongs to the larger class of evolutionary algorithms (EA). Genetic algorithms are commonly used to generate high-quality solutions to optimization and search problems by relying on bio-inspired operators such as mutation, crossover and selection.


    In computer science, evolutionary computation is a family of algorithms for global optimization inspired by biological evolution, and the subfield of artificial intelligence and soft computing studying these algorithms. In technical terms, they are a family of population-based trial and error problem solvers with a metaheuristic or stochastic optimization character.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on genetic algorithm and evolutionary computation. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Artificial intelligence and soft computing
    • Differential evolution
    • Genetic programming
    • Recombination and mutation
    • Iterative decoding
    • Selection methods
    • Swarm intelligence
    • Stochastic optimisation methods
    • Ant colony optimization
    • Metaheuristic methods

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Genetic Algorithm and Evolutionary Computation” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
