2019 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation

June 10-13, 2019, Wellington, New Zealand

The 2019 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation(IEEE CEC 2019) will be held in Wellington, New Zealand during 10-13th June 2019. The IEEE CEC is a flagship annual international conference on computational intelligence sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society. It promotes all aspects of computational intelligence theory, algorithm design, applications, and related emerging techniques.

Special Session on Hybrid Algorithms in Scheduling and Network Design

Important Dates

Submission Deadline: January 7, 2019 

Notification of Acceptance: March 7, 2019


Scope and Topics

Numerous industries and service sections are now striving to embrace the latest AI technologies. As a result, research in scheduling and network design problems is getting increasingly popular. Most of these problems, unfortunately, are NP-Hard and cannot usually be solved by exact approaches. Therefore, significant research attention has been attracted on exploring techniques in hybridizing Computational Intelligence (including evolutionary computation, neural networks, swarm intelligence, fuzzy logic) with classic integer programming techniques like branch and bound, column generations, branch and pricing, etc. This special session aims to explore recent advances in this area. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
