Description:

The theory of evolutionary computation (including, for example, run-time
analysis of evolutionary algorithms, population dynamics, and fitness
landscape analysis) has grown rapidly in recent years. Many papers have
appeared in the last few years on various aspects of evolutionary computation
theory. However, most of these papers were scattered among different journals in
evolutionary computation, operations research and computer science, addressing
different theoretical issues. It is high time to bring all such theoretical
work together and examine the fundamental challenges in a single venue.
The primary aim of this special issue is to report the latest development in
foundations of evolutionary computation. It is envisaged that this
special issue will serve as a milestone in reporting the latest breakthroughs
and setting new directions in evolutionary computation.

Potential authors are invited to submit papers describing original
contributions to foundations of evolutionary computation. Although we
are most interested in theoretical foundations,
computational studies of a foundational nature may be considered. We interpret
evolutionary computation in a broad sense in this special issue to include
all meta-heuristics such as evolutionary algorithms, swarm intelligence (e.g.,
ant colony optimisation and particle swarm optimisation), differential
evolution, culture algorithms, artificial immune systems, etc. This special
issue will consider papers on a number of topics, including but not limited to,
population dynamics, self-adaptation, run-time analysis of meta-heuristics,
fitness landscapes and problem difficulty, and no free lunch theorems.
All problem domains will be considered, including combinatorial and
continuous optimisation, single-objective and multi-objective optimisation,
constrained handling, dynamic and stochastic optimisation, co-evolution and
evolutionary learning.

Submission:

Authors should submit their manuscripts to the Theoretical Computer
Science Editorial Manager at http://ees.elsevier.com/tcs/
and indicate "Special Issue: T. F. Evolut. Comp. (Yao)"
for their submission. All submitted papers must be the original
work, not published before nor under consideration by another journal or
conference.
