**********************************************************************

The 5th International Conference on Metaheuristics and Nature Inspired Computing META’14 will held in Marrakech, Morocco from 27 to 31 Oct 2014.

The Conference will be an exchange space thanks to the sessions, tutorials, workshops and a vocational training of metaheuristics and nature inspired computing.

The scope of the META’2014 conference includes, but is not limited to:
* Local search, tabu search, simulated annealing, VNS, ILS, …
* Evolutionary algorithms, swarm optimization, scatter search, …
* Emergent nature inspired algorithms: quantum computing, artificial immune systems, bee colony, DNA computing, …
* Parallel algorithms
* Hybrid methods with machine learning, game theory, mathematical programming, constraint programming, co-evolutionary, …
* Application to: logistics and transportation, networks, scheduling, data mining, engineering design, energy, bio-medical, cloud, …
* Theory of metaheuristics, landscape analysis, convergence, problem difficulty, very large neighbourhoods, …
* Multi-objective optimization, bi-level optimization
* Dynamic optimization, problems with uncertainty, …
* Parameter tuning (static, dynamic, adaptive, self-adaptive)
* Software frameworks for metaheuristics and nature inspired computing
