Motivation and Scope
Evolutionary computing as well as deterministic chaos is a vibrant area of research in the last decades. To date, large set of nonlinear systems exhibiting chaotic and/or emergent behaviours are observed, analysed and used. They include evolutionary algorithms, as Wright and Agapie proposed in Cyclic and Chaotic Behavior in Genetic Algorithms in 2001 on GECCO conference. Such algorithms, systems and its mutual fusion form an essential part of science and engineering. Most notable examples include chaos control and synchronization, chaotic dynamics for
pseudo-random number generators in evolutionary algorithms, modelling of evolutionary dynamics like complex networks or use of chaos game with evolutionary algorithms. Recently, the study of such phenomena is focused not only on the traditional trends but also on the understanding and analysis of principles, with the new intention of controlling and utilizing it toward real-world applications.
The aim of this session is to bring together people from fundamental research, experts from various applications of evolutionary algorithms and deterministic chaos, to develop mutual intersections and fusion. Also discussion of possible hybridization amongst them as well as real-life experiences with computer applications will be carried out to define new open problems in this interesting and fast growing field of research.
The core of this session is to attract best papers based on the actual state of art discussing occurrence of deterministic chaos inside evolutionary algorithms dynamics and its impact on algorithm performance as well as use of deterministic chaos systems as pseudorandom number generator in evolutionary algorithms.

Submission Guidelines for Special Session Papers
All submissions will be reviewed by experts in the field for its originality, significance, quality and clarity. Every submitted paper to CEC'14 will be reviewed according to rules and criteria of CEC 2014. Special session papers should be uploaded online through the paper submission website of IEEE WCCI 2014 by December 20, 2013. Please note that it is your responsibility to make sure that your paper intended for this special session are submitted to the right session. This can be done by selecting the corresponding special session name as the “main research topic” in the submission.
The authors intended to contribute to IEEE WCCI 2014 Special Sessions are kindly recommended to follow the manuscript style information and templates of regular IEEE WCCI 2014 papers.
Please note that our Special Session is specifically and exclusively related to IEEE CEC 2014 which is one of the three conferences composing the IEEE WCCI 2014, i.e., IJCNN2014, FUZZ-IEEE2014, and IEEE CEC 2014. When submitting your manuscripts, you are recommended to follow these steps:
1. Identify the conference associated to the Special Session they are interested in, by looking at the "Provisionally Accepted Special Session" list under the column called ID;
2. Go to the related conference submission website;
3. Select the Special Session name in the Main Research topic dropdown list;
4. Fill out the input fields, upload the PDF file and finalize the submission by December 20, 2013.
In any case of problems, please do not hesitate contact us:

All accepted papers will be published, in a substantially extended form, in the Springer series “Emergence, Complexity and Computation”, see or selected papers in special issue of IJUC (
