Special Issue on 

“Computational Intelligence for Cloud Computing”

A special issue of IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine (IEEE CIM) will be dedicated to Computational Intelligence for Cloud computing. Prospective authors are invited to submit their original unpublished research and application papers. Comprehensive tutorial and survey papers will also be considered.

Cloud computing systems represent an emerging technology which allows users to use high performance computing systems by paying according to their needs. Cloud computing is generally a heterogeneous system and it holds a large amount of application programs and data.

The need of effective and efficient cloud computing systems poses a number of difficult, complex issues in optimization and learning as well as other aspects. This special issue seeks to promote novel research works using evolutionary algorithms and other metaheuristics to solve such problems. The following (but not limited to) issues of interest are:
- Scheduling in Cloud computing
- Optimization of public, private and hybrid cloud computing systems
- Learning application demands
- Pricing mechanisms in Cloud computing systems
- Cloud computing architecture
- Evolutionary algorithms and metaheuristics on Clouds
- Virtualization of resources
- Maintenance and management of Cloud computing
- Computational Intelligence techniques for energy management in cloud computing
