Open Special Issue: 'Artificial Intelligence and Operation Research
in Combinatorial Optimizationí

Guest editors: Prof. Dr. Hj. Mustafa bin Mamat and Dr. Syariza Abdul Rahman

The goal of this special issue is to address the recent and advanced research in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Operation Research in Combinatorial Optimization. Many real-world applications are categorized as combinatorial optimization such as vehicle routing, employee scheduling, strategic planning, (financial) asset optimization, production scheduling and timetabling. The combinatorial optimization problems are usually solved using artificial intelligence and operation research approaches. We invite high quality unpublished and original research papers which address challenges in artificial intelligence and operation research in solving combinatorial optimization problems. We welcome papers with a significant amount of new scientific contribution in theory, methods and applications which is also in line with the journal of Applied Mathematical Sciences.

Call for papers: Authors are solicited to contribute to this special issue by submitting articles that illustrates research result, projects, surveying works and industrial experiences that describe significant advances in the following areas:
    •   Optimization
    •   Scheduling
    •   Planning
    •   Transportation
    •   Bio-inspired intelligence
    •   Constraint-based techniques
    •   Decision theory
    •   Evolutionary computation
    •   Swarm Intelligence
    •   Heuristics
    •   Metaheuristics
    •   Any related topics

Authors are invited to submit papers by e-mail to the Guest Editors at: must@unisza.edu.my, musmat567@gmail.com or syariza@uum.edu.my

Important Dates:
        Paper submission deadline: August 30, 2017

He obtained his Ph.D from UMT in 2007 specialization in optimization field. Later on, he was appointed as a Senior Lectures in 2008 and then as an Associate Professor in 2010 also at UMT. To date, he has successfully supervised more than 50 postgraduate students and published more than 170 research papers in various international journals and conferences. His research interest includes optimization, chaos and finite difference methods.

        Syariza Abdul-Rahman is currently a senior lecturer at Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM), Malaysia. She was first appointed as a lecturer at the same university in 2004. She obtained her Ph.D from University of Nottingham in 2012 specializes in Scheduling, specifically in the University Timetabling. To date, she supervises some postgraduate students and with an on-going research related to Metaheuristics, Evolutionary and Swarm Intelligence for solving Combinatorial Optimization problem. She has published more than 30 research papers in various international journals and conferences. Her research interest includes scheduling and planning, heuristics and metaheuristics, evolutionary and swarm intelligence and optimization.
