CFP: International Journal of Research and Reviews in Computer Science - Special Issue on “Nature-Inspired Optimization in Networking”

-------------------------------------------------------

Computer networking has become an active research fields in the last few decades and many products have been realized through successful networking research. Due to our demands for higher data rate and more seamless connectivity, new technologies keep being developed and merchandised, including wireless sensor networks, wireless mesh networks, social networks, smart grid communications, etc. Therefore, many new problems have been proposed and most of which can be formulated as optimizationproblems. However, many such optimization problems do not have the corresponding good algorithms developed or they are so hard (usually classified as NP-hard) that no algorithm is available to find the optimal solution in polynomial time.

Although it may be difficult to find the optimal solutions for these problems, we can still approximate the best solutions with reasonably good ones. When we focus on NP-hard problems and computation time is our concern, approximate algorithms are the good choice. Since the evolutionary computational approaches were developed in the past few decades, many works rely on the nature-inspiredalgorithms to do optimization. The relatively classical ones are Genetic Algorithm, Simulated Annealing, Artificial Immune System, Ant Colony Optimization, and Particle Swarm Optimization, etc. Some recently proposed algorithms include Harmony Search, Bee Algorithm, Bacterial Foraging Optimization, Group Search Optimization, Biogeography-based Optimization, Chemical ReactionOptimization, etc.

This special issue is focused on highlighting the nature-inspired techniques to solve optimization for designing computer networks. They should demonstrate advantages or improvements in some aspects over the existing methods. The goal is to developnature-inspired approaches which enhance the adaptability, autonomicity, and scalability of any kinds of computer networks. We also welcome submissions that demonstrate real-world experience in and theoretical works on applying nature-inspired optimizationtechniques to networking research problems.
