Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

As a branch of artificial intelligence, swarm intelligence refers to the collective behavior of decentralized, self-organized systems. Swarm intelligence mainly attracts and organizes the local interactions among participants and with their environment. It aims to jointly cope with challenging tasks by means of competition, cooperation, and other independent or collaborative ways, especially complex system decision-making tasks in the open environment, which lead to the emergence of intelligent global behavior, unknown to individuals.

In recent years, the research community has witnessed an increased number of swarm intelligence algorithms that can efficiently solve complex computation tasks. Algorithms for optimization problems have been focused on, mainly due to the unprecedented complexity of problems arising from a diverse spectrum of domains, such as transportation, logistics, energy, climate, social networks, health, and Industry 4.0, among many others.

This Special Issue provides a platform for researchers from academia and industry to present their new and unpublished work and to promote future studies in swarm intelligence and its combination with real-world problems and other fields, including, but not limited to, antenna design, vehicle scheduling, drug design and discovery, image segmentation, feature selection, data clustering, traveling salesman problems, 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. Mathematics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
