INTRODUCTION:
Recently a large number of bio‐inspired computational methods have been used (also called methods of Natural Computing) to solve computationally hard problems in many domains. These methods have proven to be successful for different types of problems with unknown and uncertain data where the traditional approaches are not so effective. It is estimated that the biological life that evolved during millions of years will be a fruitful source of inspiration for the development of new computational methods offer in the years to come and they will represent an important research direction in the Artificial Intelligence mainstream.

OBJECTIVE OF THE SPECIAL ISSUE:
From a practical perspective, an essential research direction is represented by the development of highly complex systems (usually agent‐based) that intelligently solve problems of very high difficulty. We consider complex systems composed from a large number of components (agents) capable to make specialized computations in the problem space. Such developments are usually composed of a very large number of computational components, who interact many times nonlinearly, forming as a whole a complex problem solving system. A subclass of complex systems includes the hybrid systems composed from different type of artificial components capable to make computations, and human specialists that could interact in different points of decisions during the problems solving. Research related to complex systems address analysis of many aspects such as complexity, self‐organization, emergence, intelligence, hybridization and so forth. Many computational complex systems developments require interdisciplinary approaches, which must include methods developed in different sciences, like sub‐domains of the Artificial
Intelligence like Natural Computing and Intelligent Agents.
A particular subject by interest for this issue is represented by the self‐organizing complex systems that use methods of natural computing in different tasks, like: problems solving, selforganization etc. This issue will centralize some state of the art results in the theme, which we estimate that will remain an important research direction in the near future.

Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the following:
• artificial intelligence
• large‐scale and complex systems
