    PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE FOR WORKSHOP: Friday, March 23, 2007
======================================================================

The particle swarm is a remarkable optimiser that has evolved in the
last decade since it was proposed. It has a very simple formulation,
yet it is little understood.

The aim of this workshop is to attract papers on particularly
innovative algorithms, speculative ideas, new theoretical approaches
and novel applications that could act as seeds for PSO research in its
second decade.

Authors of selected papers accepted for the workshops will be invited
to submit an extended version of their manuscripts for inclusion in a
Special Issue on Particle Swarms of the Journal on Artificial
Evolution and Applications (http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jaea/).
