Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the past three decades, swarm intelligent optimization algorithms have developed rapidly, mainly reflected in two aspects. On the one hand, many swarm intelligence optimization algorithms have been proposed, such as particle swarm optimizers, gray wolf optimizers, cuckoo algorithms, neural network algorithms, and gradient-based optimization algorithms. On the other hand, swarm intelligence optimization algorithms have been applied to many engineering fields, such as medical image segmentation, drone deployment, aircraft fault diagnosis, robot path planning, and feature classification. However, as the "No Free Lunch" theorem suggests, a single algorithm cannot find optimal solutions on all optimization algorithms. In addition, with the needs of industrial production, more and more engineering problems are transformed into complex optimization problems. Therefore, more research is required to design new swarm intelligence optimization algorithms to efficiently solve different engineering optimization problems.

In recent years, symmetry/asymmetry machine learning methods have been successfully applied in many fields, such as data mining, computer vision, natural language processing, and medical diagnosis. Some scholars have also attempted to use machine learning methods to improve the performance of swarm intelligence optimization algorithms. To further promote the deep integration of machine learning methods and swarm intelligence optimization algorithms, this Special Issue invites contributions on the development and application of swarm intelligence optimization algorithms driven by symmetry/asymmetry machine learning methods.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
