Recently, evolutionary machine learning (EML) has attracted attention due to its enviable success recode in real-world problems in diverse areas; EML is signaling a paradigm shift in machine learning and artificial intelligence research. In some sense, EML has been considered the most promising approach to the next artificial intelligence.
Conceptually, EML evolves a population of promising solutions/models by following two key principles in biological evolution; natural selection and genetic inheritance, which both emulate some natural processes. These mechanisms simultaneously traverse multiple basins of attraction in a given search space and aptly eliminate noise in the assessment of solutions/models. Owing to its success in the evolutionary process, EML has readily crossed the hurdle of conventional machine learning techniques. In relation to this, many intense research activities in EML have been conducted in recent years.
The primary aim of this Special Issue is to publish research outcomes related to the theory and design of state-of-the-art EML techniques and innovative applications to nontrivial real-world problems.

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 papers will be 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. Electronics 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 1500 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.
