Hybrid Evolutionary Systems

Evolutionary Computation has become an important problem solving
methodology among many researchers working in the area of
computational intelligence. The population based collective learning
process, self adaptation and robustness are some of the key features
of evolutionary algorithms when compared to other global optimization
techniques. Evolutionary computation has been widely accepted for
solving several important practical applications in engineering,
business, commerce
etc. As we all know, the problems of the future will be more
complicated in terms of complexity and data volume.

Hybridization of evolutionary algorithms is getting popular due to
their capabilities in handling several real world problems involving
complexity, noisy environment, imprecision, uncertainty and vagueness.
A fundamental stimulus to the investigations of hybrid approach is the
awareness that combined approaches will be necessary to solve some of
the real world problems. This edited volume is targeted to present the
latest state-of-the-art methodologies in 'Hybrid Evolutionary Systems'.
Editors invite authors to submit their original and unpublished work
that communicates current research on 'Hybrid Evolutionary Systems',
regarding both the theoretical and methodological aspects, as well as
various applications to many real world problems from science,
technology, business or commerce.

Topics of interest include but not limited to the following:

I. Optimizing the Performance of Evolutionary Algorithms

* Neural networks assisted evolutionary computation
* Bayesian methods assisted evolutionary computation
* Fuzzy system assisted evolutionary computation
* Rough sets assisted evolutionary computation
* Hybridization of evolutionary algorithms with particle swarm
* Hybridization of evolutionary algorithms with other global
optimization techniques (simulated annealing, Tabu search, GRASP etc.)
* Hybridization of evolutionary algorithms with bacterial foraging
* Hybridization of evolutionary algorithms with molecular computing
(DNA computing and membrane computing)
* Hybridization of evolutionary algorithms with quantum computing
* Hybridization of evolutionary algorithms with optical computing
* Hybridization of evolutionary algorithms with other bionics

II. Optimization of Intelligent Systems Using Evolutionary Computation

* Evolutionary artificial neural networks
* Evolutionary fuzzy systems (genetic fuzzy systems)
* Integration with connectionist learning and fuzzy inference systems
* Integration of evolutionary computation with case-based reasoning,
inductive logic programming, grammatical inference etc.
* Integration with Multi-Agent Systems

III. This volume is also oriented towards real world applications where
a direct approach might fail.

* Multiobjective optimization applications
* Financial modeling
* Intrusion detection and cryptography
* NP hard problems
* Bioinformatics
* Data mining
* Knowledge management
* Natural language processing
* Image processing
* Nonlinear network problems
* Planning and scheduling
* Brain-computer interface technologies
