        ANNOUNCING MEMETIC COMPUTING, A NEW JOURNAL BY SPRINGER
                       FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS
#######################################################################
 
Submissions are now invited for the Memetic Computing Journal.
http://www.springer.com/journal/12293
 
Memetic Computing's goals are:
---------------------------------------
(1)   To be an outlet for high quality research in hybrid metaheuristics
(including 
evolutionary hybrids) for optimization, control and design in continuous
and discrete 
optimization domains. We seek to dissolve the barriers separating
metaheuristics, 
exact and approximation algorithms research and to bring forth a renewed
impetus 
towards the investigation and understanding of promising new hybrid
algorithmic 
technologies.
(2)   To go beyond current search methodologies towards innovative
research on the 
emergence of cultural artifacts such as game, trade and negotiation
strategies and, 
more generally, rules of behavior as they apply to, for example,
robotic, multi-agent 
and artificial life systems.
(3)   Ultimately, Memetic Computing aspires to serve as a focal
publication where the 
latest results in Natural Computation, Artificial Intelligence, Machine
Learning, 
Operational Research and Natural Sciences (e.g. cognitive, animal and
insect's 
behavior, etc.) are coupled together in novel ways in order to transcend
the 
intrinsic limitations of a single discipline.
 
Publication Regime:
------------------------
Memetic Computing will consist of four regular issues per year
containing original 
research articles, reviews & short research communications. The first
issue is 
scheduled for January 2009 while accepted papers are expected to appear
online prior 
via SpringLINK around September 2008.
 
Invitation to Submit:
-------------------------
Potential authors are invited to submit original research articles for
publication 
consideration at any time.  Reviews and short research communications
are also welcomed. 
Further information on submission, format, lengths and style files is
available through 
the journal website. We encourage authors attempting to have their
papers appear in the 
first issues to send manuscripts proposals to one of the
Editor-in-Chiefs or directly 
to Springer Editorial: heather DOT king AT springer DOT com.
 
Some (but not all) of the topics covered by Memetic Computing are:
 
Algorithmic Intelligence in Optimisation, Control and Design 
Hybrid (Parallel) Metaheuristics such as Tabu Search, Path relinking,
Scatter Search, 
GRASP methods, Iterated Local Search, Simulated annealing, Variable
Neighborhood Search,
