Call for Papers
Paper Submission Deadline: August 31, 2016

The KSCE Journal of Civil Engineering invites papers for 2017 Special Issue on a topic related to Design Optimization and Applications in Civil Engineering. Special issues are designed to provide a platform and give the opportunity to summarize the state-of-the-art on a specific theme, share new perspectives, and initiate discussion on the latest theoretical research. The KSCE Journal of Civil Engineering publishes one Special Issue each year.

This open call invites researchers to submit papers for a Special Issue to be published in

February, 2017.

Aim and Scope
Aim and Scope

Many design optimization problems in civil engineering are highly nonlinear subject to stringent,

complex constraints. Thus, sophisticated optimization methods are needed to find solutions to

such challenging optimization problems. One of the main goals of a civil engineer is to find a

balanced design in terms of economy, security and practicality. For such reasons, optimization is

an active research area with an increasing number of publications and interests, and researchers usually try to find better solutions than the previous existing solutions to the same type of

problem in the literature. In most research activities, researchers strive to develop new

approaches to solve existing challenging problems or try to explore new design topics by using

appropriate design methods.

In recent years, one of the main trends for new and alternative methods is to use nature- inspired metaheuristic algorithms for solving challenging optimization problems. Generally speaking, these metaheuristic optimization algorithms are simple and versatile, and yet flexible and efficient enough to deal with highly complex design problems. This Special Issue of the KSCE Journal of Civil Engineering aims to provide a timely review of the latest developments concerning novel optimization methods and new applications in civil engineering. The focus will be on novel approaches, new methods, new design applications and cross-disciplinary applications.

Researchers are invited to submit their latest research on the following topics (but not limited to):

New and novel approaches and methods for solving optimization problems

Evolutionary algorithms, metaheuristic techniques, bio-inspired computing

Swarm intelligence, fuzzy methods, hybrid methods in soft computing

New applications and new designs in civil engineering

New research in any areas closely related to optimization and engineering designs
