Memetic Computing features articles on high quality research in hybrid metaheuristics (including evolutionary hybrids) for optimization, control and design in continuous and discrete optimization domains. It goes beyond current search methodologies towards innovative research on the emergence of cultural artifacts such as game, trade and negotiation strategies and, more generally, rules of behavior as they apply to, for example, robotic, multi-agent and artificial life systems.
Memetic Computing is an avenue for the latest results in natural computation, artificial intelligence, machine learning, operational research and natural sciences, which are combined in novel ways so as to transcend the intrinsic limitations of a single discipline.
Potential authors are invited to submit original research articles for publication consideration at any time. Reviews and short research communications are also welcomed. Further information on submission, format, lengths and style files is available through the journal website. All manuscripts should be submitted electronically using the Online Submission system.
We aim to achieve a typical turnaround time of not more than 3 months for the review process.
Some (but not all) of the topics covered by Memetic Computing are:
