Accelerated evolutionary algorithms for deep learning and parallel models in future generation computing

Evolutionary computing is constantly growing in new aspects, both theoretical and practical, important for various applications in modern technology and industry. One of the recent trends is development of accelerated evolutionary algorithms which combine robustness of evolutionary methods with machine learning techniques. The main goal of this special session is to promote and advance research activities related to all facets of accelerated evolutionary algorithms.

Symposium organizers welcome high-quality original submissions related to accelerated evolutionary algorithms in combination with deep learning, reinforcement learning, autonomous learning, transfer learning or in hybrid constructions with other Artificial Intelligence solutions like neural networks, fuzzy and rule based systems both in theoretical and practical aspects oriented on future generation computing.


The scope of the session includes, but is not limited to:
  • Accelerated evolutionary, heuristics and bio inspired algorithms.
  • Parallelization of evolutionary, heuristic and bio-inspired algorithms for future generation computing.
  • Accelerated large-scale, multi-scale, multi-objective, constrained, sparse and free optimization.
  • Evolutionary based acceleration of training and data processing in deep learning, reinforcement learning, transfer learning.
  • Evolutionary based acceleration of neural networks, fuzzy logic and rue based systems, machine learning and statistical methods.
  • Accelerated applications in image processing, pattern recognition, expert systems, engineering problems, games, data mining and optimization for industry, finance, transport, logistics, economy, manufacturing, security, IoT, VR, robotics, healthcare, science, etc.
