                     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Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished papers on any  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.
