CfP: 12th International Conference on Swarm Intelligence
=====================================================================ANTS 2020
12th International Conference on Swarm Intelligence October 26-28, 2020. Barcelona U p-to-date information at /ants2020/
Extended Submission Deadline: May 1, 2020
Submission site: Proceedings published by Springer LNCS ==================================================================== =====================================================================COVID-19 Related Information
=====================================================================Sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic has currentl y brought the social, economic, and academic life in larg e parts of the world to a standstill. Moreover, it seems very hard to forecast the near (even medium) term future, making it uncertain whether it will be possible to have a physical meeting in Barcelona or not. In case it will n ot be possible to hold ANTS 2020 as an on-site conference , presenters will be required to provide video presentati ons of their papers and posters. These video presentation s will be made available online by means of a dedicated w ebsite. Moreover, the proceedings will be sent by land ma il to everyone who has registered.
=====================================================================Ext ended deadline =====================================================================The extended deadline is: May 1, 2020
=====================================================================Scope of the Conference
=====================================================================Swarm intelligence is the discipline that deals with the study of self-organizing processes both i n nature and in artificial systems. Researchers in etholo gy and animal behavior have proposed a number of models t o explain interesting aspects of collective behaviors suc h as movement coordination, shape-formation or decision m aking. Recently, algorithms and methods inspired by these models have been proposed to solve difficult problems in many domains. Among these, it is worth mentioning ant co lony optimization (ACO) and particle swarm optimization ( PSO), focusing respectively on discrete and continuous op timisation problems. Also, Swarm robotics represents anot her field of techniques derived from swarm intelligence f or the design of collaborative multi-robot systems featur ing enhanced efficiency, robustness and scalability. ANTS 2020 aims to give researchers in swarm intelligence the opportunity to meet, to present their latest research, an d to discuss current developments and applications. The t hree-day conference will be held for the first time in Ba rcelona, on October 26?28, 2020.
=====================================================================Rel evant Research Areas =====================================================================ANTS 2020 solicits contributions dealing with any aspect of swarm intelligen ce. Typical, but not exclusive, topics of interest are:
- Behavioral models of social insects or other animal so cieties that can stimulate new algorithmic approaches. - Theoretical and empirical and research in swarm intellig ence. - Application of swarm intelligence methods (e.g., ant colony optimisation or particle swarm optimisation) to real-world problems. - Theoretical and experimental r esearch in swarm robotics systems.
