IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation

Special Session on

Complex Engineering Optimization
June 20-23, 2013, Cancun, Mexico

Aim and Scope

    Evolutionary algorithms (EAs) and other meta-heuristics have shown to be powerful in solving a wide range of global optimization problems. However, most research on evolutionary optimization has been performed on a set of test problems that are believed to represent various types of hard problems for EAs to solve. This special session aims to promote the application of EAs and other meta-heuristics to solving real-world complex engineering optimization problems. Topics of interest may cover, but are not limited to
    • Surrogate-assisted evolutionary optimization of expensive problems;
    • Evolutionary search for robust optimal solutions;
    • Multi-objective, many-objective and multi-disciplinary optimization;
    • Interactive evolutionary design;
    • Co-optimization of multiple subsystems;
    • Experimental and on-line evolutionary optimization;
    • High-dimensional, hybrid or mixed integer optimization problems.

    Papers that address one or a few of the above-mentioned issues in solving real-world engineering optimization problems found in industries, such as aerospace, automotive, and process industries are particularly welcome.

Paper Submission

    Special session papers should be submitted electronically through the IEEE CEC 2013 main website. Please choose "Complex Engineering Optimization" as the topic of your paper in submission.
