Evolutionary Computation is a leading journal in its field. It provides an international forum for facilitating and enhancing the exchange of information among researchers involved in both the theoretical and practical aspects of computational systems drawing their inspiration from nature, with particular emphasis on evolutionary models of computation such as genetic algorithms, evolutionary strategies, classifier systems, evolutionary programming, and genetic programming. It welcomes articles from related fields such as swarm intelligence (e.g. Ant Colony Optimization and Particle Swarm Optimization), and other nature-inspired computation paradigms (e.g. Artificial Immune Systems). As well as publishing articles describing theoretical and/or experimental work, the journal also welcomes application-focused papers describing breakthrough results in an application domain or methodological papers where the specificities of the real-world problem led to significant algorithmic improvements that could possibly be generalized to other areas.
