CEC 2015 Special Session on Bat Algorithm and Cuckoo Search (BACS 2015)

May 25 to 28 May 2015, Sendai, Japan.

Nature-inspired algorithms, especially swarm intelligence based algorithms, have become very popular in optimization and computational intelligence. New algorithms such as the bat algorithm and cuckoo search have demonstrated some distinct advantages and have thus been applied in many areas such as engineering optimization and image segmentation. Though the literature about the practical applications has expanded significantly in the last few years, theoretical studies lack behind. This special session intends to provide a timely platform to exchange ideas about new bio-inspired optimization algorithms, with emphasis on the following topics (but not limited to):

* Theoretical analysis of new algorithms such as cuckoo search, firefly algorithm, and bat algorithm.
* Applications such as feature selection, classifications, design optimization and big data.
* Hybridization with other algorithms such as GA, PSO and others.

Authors are welcome to submit original, unpublished contributions to the Special Session (BACS2015) by using the online submission system at the CEC 2015 website. Details of the CEC2015 can be found at
