Aim and Scope

With the advent of wireless and communication technologies, communication and computer networks have been growing rapidly and become a powerful medium of information and resources sharing. In view of the increasing scale, complexity, diversity, and mobility, design and optimization of networks become an essential research topic as well as a critical issue in real-world applications.

Computational intelligence (CI) has shown to be effective for a wide range of real-world problems. In particular, CI techniques, including neural network, fuzzy systems, and evolutionary computation, have gained much success and promising results in communications and networking.

The aim of this special session is to reflect the most recent advances of CI in communications and networking, and increase the awareness of the computing and network community at large on this kind of effective technology. This session will allow researchers to share experiences and present their new ways for taking advantage of CI techniques in communications and networking. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Design of CI techniques for networking
    • Network optimization
    • Routing
    • Scheduling and load balance
    • Energy efficiency
    • Resource and interference management
    • Coverage and surveillance
    • Deployment optimization
    • Channel assignment
    • Location and mobility

  • CI in different communication technologies
    • Network optimization
    • Wireless network
    • Wireless sensor network (WSN)
    • Mobile/vehicular ad hoc network (MANET/VANET)
    • Cognitive network (CR)
    • Mesh/relay network
    • Heterogeneous networks
