WCCI2016 – Special Session on Computational Intelligence in Aerospace Science and Engineering

Special Session on Computational Intelligence in Aerospace Science and Engineering

The following announcement was sent by Massimiliano Vasile, Chit Hong Yam, Victor Becerra, Edmondo Minisci, and Annalisa Riccardi:

The IEEE Task Force on Computational Intelligence in Aerospace Sciences is glad to invite you to submit one or more contributions to the Special Session on Computational Intelligence in Aerospace Science and Engineering at the IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence. The WCCI2016 will be held in Vancouver, Canada, from the 25th to the 29th of July 2016.

This special session will draw together many diverse efforts on the application of computational intelligence techniques, or related methods, to aerospace problems. The session seeks to bring together researchers from around the globe for a stimulating discussion on recent advances in evolutionary methods for the solution of space and aerospace problems. In particular evolutionary methods specifically devised, adapted or tailored to address problems in space and aerospace applications or evolutionary methods that were demonstrated to be particularly effective at solving aerospace related problems are welcome.

Session Topics
Authors are invited to submit papers on one or more of the following topics:

  • Global trajectory optimization
  • Multidisciplinary design for space missions
  • Formation and constellation design and control
  • Optimal control of spacecraft and rovers
  • Planning and scheduling for autonomous systems in space
  • Multiobjective optimization for space applications
  • Resource allocation and programmatics
  • Evolutionary computation for concurrent engineering
  • Distributed global optimization
  • Mission planning and control
  • Robust mssion design under uncertainties
  • Intelligent search and optimization methods in aerospace applications
  • Image analysis for Guidance Navigation and Control
  • Autonomous exploration of interplanetary and planetary environments
  • Implications of emerging AI fields such as artificial life or swarm intelligence on future space research
  • Intelligent algorithms for fault identification, diagnosis and repair
  • Multi-agent systems approach and bio-inspired solutions for system design and control
  • Advances in machine learning for space applications
  • Intelligent interfaces for human-machine interaction
  • Knowledge discovery, data mining and presentation of large data sets

Submission Guidelines
