The last decade has witnessed the emergence of several optimization metaheuristics
based on water mechanics. These general purpose methods deal with both continuous
optimization (e.g. Water Cycle Algorithm, Water Wave Optimization) and
combinatorial optimization (e.g. River Formation Dynamics, Intelligent Water
Drops). Although water-based metaheuristics
are relatively new, they have attracted much attention due to their good
results when applied to a wide variety of optimization problems (see this survey for details). In addition, other
problem-specific optimization algorithms where the water plays a key role have
also been proposed in domains such as flood control or river flow management.
The goal of this session is to introduce new research on water-based optimization,
emphasizing two main synergies: first, between researchers developing water-based
metaheuristics and researchers facing specific water-domain optimization
problems; and second, between researchers working on the design of water-based
methods and researchers dealing with specific industrial optimization problems.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
evaluation of water-based metaheuristics.
water-based metaheuristics with other methods (e.g. other swarm intelligence
and evolutionary algorithms, neural networks, fuzzy logic, etc.).
water-based metaheuristcs to new domains.
application of water-based methods.
