ICDIM 2012


3. The 2nd International Workshop on Nature-Inspired Computing and Metaheuristics (NiCaM 2012)
To Commemorate the Silver Jubilee of the Existence of International Neural Network Society (INNS)

Technical Sponsor

International Neural Network Society - India Chapter (INNS-India)

Nature-inspired computing and metaheuristics form a substantial amount of activities in computational intelligence, data-mining, business intelligence, information technology and their applications. This research workshop, while celebrating the Silver Jubilee of INNS, intends to provide a platform along with ICDIM 2012 for researchers to review and discuss the latest development in the following areas (but not limited):

 • Computational Intelligence and Applications
   - Artificial neural networks
   - Business intelligence and optimization
   - Data mining
   - Intelligent information technology
   - Real-world applications

 • Algorithms and metaheuristics
   - Ant colony optimization
   - Artificial immune systems
   - Bee algorithms
   - Cuckoo search
   - Differential evolution
   - Genetic algorithms
   - Genetic programming
   - Firefly algorithm
   - Harmony search
   - Particle swarm optimization
   - Simulated annealing
   - Tabu search
   - and others

Submissions should provide original and unpublished research results or on-going research in process. Papers by postgraduate students are encouraged too. The papers should be between 6 to 8 pages total in length in the IEEE format. Papers accepted and presented at the workshop will be published in the IEEE ICDIM 2012 Proceedings.
