IEEE Symposium on

Model-Based Evolutionary Algorithms

The IEEE Symposium on Model Based Evolutionary Algorithms (IEEE MBEA 2018) will be held simultaneously with other symposia and workshops in one location at the 2018 IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence (IEEE SSCI 2018). This international event promotes all aspects of the theory and applications of computational intelligence. Sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, this event will attract top researchers, professionals, practitioners and students from around the world. The registration to SSCI 2018 will allow participants to attend all the symposia, including the complete set of the proceedings of all the meetings, coffee breaks, lunches, and the banquet.

Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE SSCI 2018 proceedings and on IEEEXplore, conditioned on registering and presenting the paper at the conference.

The manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format. Click Here to know further guidelines for submission.
