Call for Papers

Introduction

The SEMCCO 2020 is the eighth international conference of this series, where SEMCCO 2010 has been successfully organized at SRM University, Chennai, SEMCCO 2011 at ANITS, VisakhpatnamSEMCCO 2012 at SOA University, Bhubaneswar, SEMCCO 2013 at SRM University, Chennai, SEMCCO 2014 at SOA University, Bhubaneswar, and SEMCCO 2015 at Hyderabad, India. The FANCCO 2019 is the fifth international conference of this series, collocated and co-organized with SEMCCO.The SEMCCO 2020 will be held in Thailand,18-22 November 2020. These conferences aim at bringing together researchers from academia and industry to report and review the latest progresses in the cutting – edge research with Swarm, Evolutionary, Memetic, Fuzzy, and Neural computing to explore new application areas and to design new bio-inspired derivative and combinatorial free algorithms for solving specific hard optimization problems and finally to create awareness on these domains to a wider audience to practitioners. Therefore, researchers are encouraged to submit their contributions in both theoretical and practical aspects.
