Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of Algorithms focuses on recent developments of swarm optimization and its many applications in operations and supply chain management. Swarm intelligence is an important research area of artificial intelligence and operations research that provides adaptive computational tools to solve complex optimization and decision problems. Swarm intelligence and evolutionary computation showed, during the last few decades, a high flexibility in terms of handling variables, constraints, and multiple conflicting objectives. This Special Issue serves as a forum for the development of advanced swarm intelligent algorithms and/or applying existing ones for solving operations management and decision problems. A special interest will be oriented towards non-conventional problems, such as game optimization, dynamic optimization, multi-level and multi-objective optimization.

Researchers are invited to submit their original and unpublished works on the following (but not limited to) areas:

Particle swarm optimization for supply chain management;

Swarm intelligence in games;

Evolutionary artificial bees and fireflies algorithms;

Multi-objective evolutionary algorithm and its applications in operations;

swarm intelligence for multi-level programming and its applications in supply chain management;

Evolutionary computation based machine learning system and its applications; Evolutionary computation based data mining system and its applications; Evolutionary computation in transportation systems, etc.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Algorithms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
