 May 13-14, 2014   The International Conference on Swarm Intelligence Based
Optimization (ICSIBO'2014)

The International Conference on Swarm Intelligence Based Optimization (
ICSIBO'2014) is a continuation of conferences OEP'2003 (Paris), OEP'2007
(Paris) and ICSI'2011 (Cergy-Pontoise).

The aim of ICSIBO'2014 conference is to highlight the theoretical progress
of swarm intelligence metaheuristics and their applications.

In particular, the plenary talk by Maurice Clerc will explore some
alternatives to the use of classical random numbers generators in
stochastic algorithms.

Swarm Intelligence is a computational intelligence technique involving the
study of collective behavior in decentralized systems.
Such systems are made up of a population of simple individuals interacting
locally with one another and with their environment.
Although there is generally no centralized control on the behavior of
individuals, local interactions among individuals often cause a global
pattern to emerge.
Examples of such systems can be found in nature, including ant colonies,
animal herding, bacteria foraging, bee swarms, and many more.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
    - Theoretical advances of swarm intelligence metaheuristics
    - Combinatorial, discrete, binary, constrained, multi-objective,
multi-modal, dynamic, noisy, and large-scale optimization
    - Artificial immune systems, particle swarms, ant colony, bacterial
foraging, artificial bees, fireflies algorithm
    - Hybridization of algorithms
    - Parallel/distributed computing, machine learning, data mining, data
clustering, decision making and multi-agent systems based on swarm
intelligence principles
    - Adaptation and applications of swarm intelligence principles to real
world problems in various domains, including medicine, biology, chemistry,
finance, insurance, economics, social sciences, transportation, tourism,
education, defense, telecommunications, energy, management, information
retrieval, software engineering, fraud detection, environment,
remote-sensing, robots

Proposals for Special Sessions are welcome. Last date: March 1st, 2014. If
you are interested in organizing a special session in the conference,
please contact siarry at u-pec.fr, lhassane.idoumghar at uha.fr and
julien.lepagnot at uha.fr.

The organizers encourage scientists and industry leaders to organize
dedicated panels dealing with controversial and challenging topics and
Submissions of original and unpublished work related to swarm intelligence
are invited, including, theory, development, and applications.
Areas of focus include particle swarm optimization, ant colony
optimization, foraging techniques, and other swarm intelligence related
Authors are invited to submit their original and unpublished work without
any limitation to the above related subjects.
For more information, please contact siarry at u-pec.fr,
