The aim of this conference is to highlight the theoretical progress of swarm intelligence metaheuristics and their applications.

Swarm intelligence is a computational intelligence technique involving the study of collective behavior in decentralized systems. Such systems are made up of a population of simple individuals interacting locally with one another and with their environment. Although there is generally no centralized control on the behavior of individuals, local interactions among individuals often cause a global pattern to emerge. Examples of such systems can be found in nature, including ant colonies, animal herding, bacteria foraging, bee swarms, and many more. However, swarm intelligence computation and algorithms are not necessarily nature-inspired.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Special sessions

Proposals for Special Sessions are welcome. Last date: February 29, 2016. If you are interested in organizing a special session in the conference, please contact

Panel proposals

The organizers encourage scientists and industry leaders to organize dedicated panels dealing with controversial and challenging topics and paradigms. Submissions of original and unpublished work related to swarm intelligence are invited, including, theory, development, and applications. Areas of focus include particle swarm optimization, ant colony optimization, foraging techniques, and other swarm intelligence related topics. Authors are invited to submit their original and unpublished work without any limitation to the above related subjects.
