                  special issue on MEMETIC COMPUTING

* Scope and aims

Many problems in all the traditional research areas, such as science,
engineering, physics, biology, and medicine are often hard to solve,
mainly due to the difficulty in understanding their indirect causes
and effects, which are not related in an obvious way. Therefore,
studying how a system interacts with the environment, or how simple
components give rise to the global collective behavior of the system,
or even how parts of a system interact with each other, is nowadays
one of the most challenging and interesting research areas in every
discipline because of its utmost relevance.

In the field of complex systems there currently exist several
sophisticated tools that can help us to study the systems in an
in-depth manner, through analytical models, and from a computational
point of view, describing their model and the way it is simulated.

This special issue aims to bring together researchers and
practitioners working in the field of complex systems, particularly in
regards to the development of new analytical models and novel
applications, as well as on the design of new nature-inspired
optimization algorithms.

Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished papers on any
topics related to complex systems.
