Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing
"Metaheuristics on GPU"

Lately we have seen a drastic change in the development of commodity computers. The steady increase of CPU frequency has stopped. Performance is now improved through a growing number of cores for task parallel computing. Moreover, improvement of the performance and programmability of graphics processing units (GPUs) adds impressive stream processing capabilities to ordinary computers. To take advantage of the new computing capabilities offered by the GPU, metaheuristics need to be re-implemented and even rethought.

We are happy to announce a special issue of Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing on the use of GPUs in metaheuristics, both in discrete and continuous optimization. The issue is open to the entire international research community. Papers covering all topics of GPU computing in metaheuristics are welcome.

The topics include, but are not limited to:
* Parallel single-solution metaheuristics on GPU (local search, tabu
search, simulated annealing, …)
* Parallel population-based metaheuristics on GPU (evolutionary
algorithms, swarm intelligence, AIS, PSO, bee colony, EDA, scatter
search, …)
* Parallel hybrid metaheuristics on GPU
* Surveys of GPU computing and prospects for the future
* Case studies focused on large scale academic or real-life problems
* Theoretical aspects
* Frameworks

All contributions will be peer reviewed according to the usual standards of the journal. For the full call text including detailed instructions,
we refer to the JDPC home page at

Important dates

Full paper submission: April 15, 2011

Author notification: September 15, 2011

Final paper: November 15, 2011

Expected publication date: April 15, 2012

Submission guidelines:

Authors are invited to submit papers to this special issue. The submitted papers must be written in English and describe original research which is neither published, nor currently under review by other journals or conferences. The author guidelines for preparation of manuscript can be found at:

Each manuscript should be accompanied by a cover letter outlining the basic findings of the paper and their significance. Manuscripts should
be no longer than 20 double-spaced pages, not including the title page, abstract, or references. All manuscripts and any supplementary material should be submitted through the Elsevier Editorial System (EES) at . The authors must select “Special Series: Metaheuristics on GPU” from the Article Type drop-down menu so the paper is properly routed. You will need to create a user account if you do not already have one prior to submission.
