About Event:

The discipline of nature inspired optimization algorithms is a major field of computational intelligence, soft computing and optimization at large, which has attracted the interest of many researchers. The past and on-going research in this field covers a wide range of topics from basic research to a huge number of real-world applications in science, engineering, industry, business, and economics.
Introduction of many new algorithms inspired by natural selection, food foraging, group movements, physical laws and other natural paradigms has made this field of research quite rich. Such algorithms provide efficient tools to those problems, which cannot be solved using traditional and classical mathematical methods, as the algorithms do not require any auxiliary mathematical condition to be satisfied. However, in general, nature inspired algorithms can be broadly classified into three categories: Evolutionary Algorithms, Swarm Intelligence and algorithms based on Physical Laws. There are few algorithms, which do not fall in any of these categories, e.g. Harmony Search, etc.
The aim of this 2-days' workshop is to disseminate state-of-the-art contributions on the latest research and development, up-to-date issues, and challenges in Soft computing technique, with a view to solve unconstrained, constrained and multi-objective nonlinear optimization problems. The unique and innovative ways of specific applications of relevant recent algorithms in various field of science, engineering, medical, industry and business will cover the major part of this workshop. The workshop will include lectures, lab sessions, panel discussions, case-studies.
