- Special issue in "Metaheuristics for 4.0 industry" in Elsevier Journal Swarm-and-Evolutionary-Computation (deadline for submission: 31 May 2018)
META is one of the most popular conference focusing in the area of metaheuristics and their applications. As in the previous six editions, META’2018 will provide an opportunity to the international research community in metaheuristics for optimization and machine learning to discuss recent research results, to develop new ideas and collaborations, and to meet researchers from diverse countries in a friendly and excellent atmosphere.
META'2018 welcomes submissions that cover any aspects of metaheuristic research such as new algorithmic design and implementation, real-life and academic applications in science and industry, theoretical developments, and experimental analysis. META'2018 strives for a high-quality program completed by a number of tutorials, workshops and special sessions.
